Deer camp is coming up and I can't wait.  Got the franks made, and just finished 6  5 pound pieces of Canadian bacon.  Polish is next and some jerky.  good luck.

Deer camp with RH must really be something.  Wake up have big breakfast with his sausages, take nap.  Have lunch with his sausages, take nap.  Have big supper with his special meats, go to bed early.  Do this every day  for a week then go home and eat boring stuff for 51 weeks waiting for deer camp next year.  Hey we forgot to go hunting again this year...  Oh well was a great deer camp.

Thanks guy's.  Yes we heat well at deer camp.  No diet plan there and plenty of quality adult beverages.  My nephew is getting into it also there.  He brings up his big grill which makes a good impact.  He loves to cook and I'm going to help him with making sausage.  Probably next year I won't have to bring up as much as he will be making sausage also.  good luck.

I gotta a question. Might be a dumd one. After all the prep I usually cold smoke then heat with more smoke on the smoker (gas) and they turn out marvelous.  Next time I'm leaning on adding heat in the charcoal offset, how much difference in taste is the charcoal going to do? The wife is handing it out as gifts for several clients but I'm not sure to stick with were used to or try the offset!! Any thoughts guys??

DO NOT DO ANYTHING DIFFERENT IF IT IS MARVELOUS NOW!!!!!   You will regret it if you do.  I have done that and the next batch wasn't as good and then what????  Ok if it is for you but do you want to give it away if it is not as good as you usually do????   Well there is a couple of guys I would give it to...   :rotflmao:

Haven't tried it on indirect heat with charcoal.  I'm stuck with the way i do it because it turns out great that way.  However I use charcoal like everyone on many things including pork items and I never had a problem.  All you are doing is using charcoal for your heat source.  So I'm guessing you are cold smoking it first and then finishing the loins off on indirect using charcoal instead of propane.  So I see no problem that way.  I just like to use the electric smoker because I like having the smoke on and the temp at 225 at the same time using that tube smoker instead of the chip tray.  Always get great color and flavor that way.  good luck.

Thanks for the input guys!! The brinkman offset runs right around 100 degrees difference from the coal side to the bigger side and holds it well for quite a while.  She wants 2 bellies done and 10 # of cb done, so this is what I'm thinking.  Probably up the cb to 15#, 10 in the smoker with 2/3 of the belly and the rest in the offset with charcoal. I think it'll be a good mix, but wishing I had more open weekends to experiment before the deadline..

Ok got the loin.  An 8 lber.  Thinking I will put it on a Pops Brine today and smoke it in 2 weeks.  I did my last batch of bacon for 2 weeks and it was awesome.  I did the couple of hours of soak in water then let it sit overnight.  Then smomed.  So actually it was a nice easy project since the timing is doing it on weekends.

9 or 10 days would be OK to smoke that loin.  Cut it in half and brine it and you will be fine.  good luck.

Well here goes !! Some the smoker style and some on the offset.  It's gonna be interesting to see if the charcoal makes it taste different...2hrs of cold smoke then heat wit more.
