I cured this 8# butt for about 20 days before smoking to 152 degrees at the thickest part. The smaller deboned area is a dark red while the bulk of the meat is a pink (much more pink than the pics show). What do you guys think? Did the cure not take or is it fine? I plan on frying in a pan before eating.

I would resize some of those pictures if i were you.

Other than that, it looks good.

Looks mighty tasty. How did you do your cure?
Do you generally use the butt when you are making buckboard?
And I agree, resize the pics if you can.

This is my first time curing anything and to my understanding the butt or loin is preferred for the buckboard. Since this was my first, I just used the hi mountain cure sold at Cabelas/Bass pro shops

How long did you cure it? It pretty much looks like every batch of buckboard bacon I ever made (before I smoked it).

Looks like all the butts we have cured also but we only cure for 10 days

I use a 10 day cure too, and if they are boned out I rub both the outside and the inside, it then goes into a big Ziploc, and I do three 8 lb butts with one box of HiMountain, (each box does 25lbs cure).

This is the time of year Sportsman's Warehouse often has them on sale and I try and stock up.

Smoking slowly I take 10 to 12 hours to get it up to fully smoked.
