    <p />Papa ShaBBQ Mack Daddy06 ,[p]I brined these in a basic brine (I think I used the Cook's Illustrated one), then hickory smoked them at 225 for about 4-5 hours. Easy to do, but since I found out that the butcher who sells me the green hocks, sells his smoked ones for about .10 more, I usually just buy 'em. ;)[p]Cheers,
