lol, good thing I'm heading up to CSL in a couple weeks...and Schwartz's has a seat with my name on it.

Well the flavor was great...and the 9 guys i had hanging out devoured it in about 6 minutes...but I think the extra few days in the fridge killed the texture...next time I steam a lot longer...any better way to steam?

looks about right...but I just used a 2.5 gallon zip top bag

Today was smoking day...about 4+ hours using royal oak lump and sugar maple...

had to test it out...steaming will make it that much better...was worried that the cloves would be too powerful as they are the most powerful ingredient in the cure...but it's spot on. holy hell...porker, you the man.

this may get lost up there...

porker, I'm following your recipe for a nearly 6lb flat...good amount of fat. used a fraction of the dry cure, enough to cover both sides, flipping twice daily...thinking since its smaller...it'll take less time to cure...so 7 days of curing?
