I did this earlier this week and am just now getting around to consuming some of it. I cured using the recipe from 'Charcuterie'. Wow, it came out really good.
Here they are after the cure....the thin tail ends are a little over cured...not sure how to remedy that next time.
...and after a 6 hour cold smoke (cherry chunks for smoke).
Finally...Served for lunch today after letting it sit a few days to let the smoke mellow. I'll be doing this a lot from now on..really good stuff.
