I've been all over the board the last month. Couple pork shoulders, several racks of ribs, pastrami, scotch eggs, tri tip, brisket, bunch of pizzas, pork belly burnt ends, just smoked some bacon yesterday, got Canadian bacon curing now.

Only bad fail I've had so far was a rib roast. Cranked the pellet grill all the way up to get a good sear but it caught on fire and burnt it.

I just got my first pellet grill in feburary so it's been a great learning experience so far. I've only has an electric smoker before.

Did some ribs on Monday, the smaller  one is for the wife and me and the other for an older couple who is locked down with an older child still at home. Used the Competition Blend from the Pellet Peddler, love his products very low ash. And a good cigar to top it off  :)

Finally got the bacon smoked. 

I used the kit below and boneless pork spare ribs, which made things a bit easier.  No trimming, they were already cut into about 1 pound portions, and they are relatively lean, compared to pork belly.  I got them for $2.50 per pound, then the following week, they were on sale for about $1.50 a pound.

I used the High Mountain kit, which was pretty straightforward and does 25 pounds per 16 ounces of cure.  Cured ten days, per instructions, but rotated twice.

https://himtnjerky.com/buckboard-bacon-cure/

Followed the instructions to run at 150 F for 45 minutes, without smoke, then smoke at 200 F until internal temp reached 140 F.  I used apple chips.

The results were really good, people liked the flavor, and the spare ribs had a decent amount of fat, but were pretty lean.   I would do it again with boneless spare ribs and this kit.  About 14 pounds of bacon in the freezer at about $3.00-4.00/pound for lean and tasty bacon.  Now I need a slicer.

Next, I will try making a cure from a recipe, while I collect cheap pork in the freezer when it is on sale.

Got a pellet grill right before lockdown and have done a few dry rubbed pork shoulders. This one turned out pretty well.

I did a brisket, and decided to run a couple pheasant thru at the same time. Soaked the pheasant in a brine of 1/4 cup of salt and 1/2 cup brown sugar, with some garlic powder in a half gallon of water. Soaked it for 3 days. After a couple hours smoking the pheasant was drying out, so I wrapped it in tin foil.

I think that pheasant might have been the best thing to ever come out of my smoker. The legs were best but all was good!

Smoked my Canadian bacon yesterday. Turned out great. Got some al pastor marinating now for Tuesday.

Also got a lead on a good deal for a pig. Gonna help butcher it next weekend and throw it in the freezer. Any recommendations for cuts or things to do with it?

Making room for halibut. Thawed out all the pheasant, then canned the breast meat, and smoked the legs and a few breasts. Better than bacon!

Scalded and scraped or skinned ? If scalded make some cracklins . Smoke some hocks/shanks either way . Save the nice back fat for sausage making, keep some as "fresh" ground pork and side pork . If you have access to a cuber, pork cutlets with some lean cuts.
If you like liver at all a quality pork liver is pretty rich and mild . Heart is small usually grind material for me but its good too.
Just a few options ...
