didn't cook em long enough. :doh:

looks real purdy though. they smoked @ 275* for an hour dusted with oakridge secret weapon. then braised in stout, cherry preserve, apple juice, with minced onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper, for another hour. they probed tender, but alas, needed another good hour.

thanks biggles. i just remembered, to make it all the more unfortunate, they were also berkshire heritage pork. my butcher cut them right out of the head for me on the spot.

well, got two more to play with.

Nice, looks great. They do take some time

If you haven't eaten it all yet perhaps you can slice it thin and use it like bacon.

Did the butcher get the glands out?
My butcher didn't, lucky I found them before I used them.
I agree, sure was purdy!

Looks good.
They are light coloured nuggets, for next time you buy just to check.

RE: pork cheek *fail*
Sorry the didn't turn out how you wanted. Went out to dinner at some fancy place last night and had apple cider braised pork cheeks . They were awesome, immediately thought, where can I get these and how can I smoke 'em.

Its not a loss!!!! ............. its guanciale,(kinda sorta :wacko: ) just smoked, not cured.. close enuf...

dice it up, throw it in a pan to crispy it up, then add it to fresh tomato sauce with some red pepper flakes(or i dice a red cherry pepper)and simmer it for a few minutes.. serve it over bucatini...

Bucatini all’Amatriciana...its one of my favorite comfort foods.. google it.. loads of recipes. :cool:
