Oh, man. That sounds so awesome.

It's too bad you're married. Oh, wait, so am I! Never mind.

I was going to comment, but after all that I don't think I can avoid the double entendres.

So, I'll just say good luck.

Mixed up the Rub right after work. Using 5 oz of cracked pepper, 5 oz of hand ground juniper berries, and 2 oz of hand ground coriander


Meat rinse, and just a final touch up trim . . .


Cold smoke generator set for about 6 hours (hickory this time)


And away we go . . .


Will post when it's done smoking and then after it finishes in the oven
