Three weeks of cure??? It seems to me that would have had a huge impact on the saltiness! I'm only doing ten days and I'm using Neil's plan of covering it with pure maple syrup, probably the last 3-4 days.

Yeh, I know that now . That's what I get for not researching properly BEFORE starting something new.

Just goes to show you... never follow instructions on a product... always ask the Brethren first. Experts mod.

Just finished rubbing my butt... Thought I'd share that bit of information with y'all!

That seemed like a ****load of TenderQuick on that thing! I can imagine this being really salty! The only thing I don't get is the TenderQuick bag says to just leave the cure on for 24 hours! Oh well, guess I'll leave it on until next Monday, then rinse off and soak for 24 hours and a week from tonight, smear on pure maple syrup and some turbinado sugar, re-wrap and let sit in the fridge until Friday night and cook Friday night for breakfast on Saturday, the 6th.

Has anyone done peppered bacon? I just picked up another box of Hi mountain cure this weekend and I thought I might try some peppered bacon. How about any other type/ flavor of bacon besides maple and honey?

Merry Christmas to my neighbors (and myself!). Just finished butterflying 7 boneless butts and rubbing with 50%/50% Tenderquick / brown sugar mix. Wrapped in cellophane and put in zip lock bags. Stuck in the fridge for a week. Plan to smoke 'em next Saturday or Sunday and give to a few neighbors as a Christmas present and save some for Christmas in Michigan. The in-laws love the stuff!

Found boneless butts on sale for 99 cents / pound this week and stocked up for this! Will make for a pretty inexpensive yet impressive gift to give.

Hey Jeff, Do you give the butt whole and let them slice or do you slice for them. That is a great idea to give these.
