I mentioned it yesterday and finished it up last night about Midnight. Figured I should at least post picts of the end product . . .









Started out as a skin on pork belly with ribs from the local Vietnamese grocery. Used a brown sugar and maple cure, cold smoked it for 12 hours with hickory, finished it in the oven @200 until the meat was 160 then chilled over night. Turned out fantastic!

I saw Bobby Flay fill the water bowl with ice. Granted, that was for a quick cold smoke of something (can't remember what).

With how popular WSM's are, I'm sure there's ways...

New soldering iron, big tomato or smallish coffee can and wood chips.

Actually you can hot smoke bacon @ 200-225F until it's 150F internal. Then foil & throw in the fridge until it's cold & then slice it up. That's how I do my bacon and It's awesome. Cheers!!!
