  1. Cure #1 question

    Snips from: Artificial flavors and propylene glycol are perishable, yet they too don't have standard expiration dates. One curing salt manufacturer suggests its product is good for three years beyond the best by date printed on the bottle. If your curing salt is only salt and sodium nitrate or sodium nitrite, it's good forever. Salt itself never goes bad. Store curing salts in dry, moisture-lock, airtight containers and in a cool dry place, such as your pantry or a dry goods storage closet. Do not refrigerate or freeze curing salt.
  2. 98° outside temp? Did you even need to add coals?
  3. Pork butt wont pull

    You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat. For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them). There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.
  4. Pork Belly Stinks

    I'm thinking more like throwing away potential abdominal discomfort, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, fatigue, and fever.
  5. Pork Belly Stinks

    Cut your losses and just get rid of it.
  6. Yeah they taste great, I start brushing the syrup on with about an hour left also. That is also when I add the pepper and garlic.
  7. Ever try brushing them with pure maple syrup? I do this with Salmon at the same time I put on the garlic and pepper.
  8. First ride today

    Already have just over 900 miles this year on my bike with my two month stay in AZ. Nothing better than riding in the mountains.
  9. American Restorations

    Maybe you could ask Rick for some HSO decals to go on the front of those bad boys eh? All kidding aside, nice work.
  10. Hummingbird Nest W/eggs

    That looks exactly like the bird and nest I have on the patio. Thanks for posting it.
  11. Hummingbird Nest W/eggs

    They are cool, I'm still amazed at how tiny and compact they are.
  12. Hummingbird Nest W/eggs

    Thought I'd share this picture of a Hummingbird nest. I am currently in AZ for a couple months and watched a hummingbird build a nest on the patio of the house I'm renting. Probably not a big deal to you serious birders but it's a first for me. Hard to tell from the picture but the nest is incredibly small, I don't think you could even put a golf ball inside of it.
  13. Macon bacon

    Not sure if that loin is a "Hormel always Tender" brand (kinda looks like it is). If it is you may want to cut back on any salt you use in your brine. Check out the Sodium content on the Nutrition label.
  14. Deer Lottery Question

    First off, thanks to all that replied When looking at my license I do have a section that states :665 - Antlerless/special hunt application. So I am sure that means I am automatically registered into the lottery. Thanks again.
  15. Deer Lottery Question

    Thanks for the reply. I'll need to check it out.
