I drizzled some Hickory Shagbark syrup in each bag before I sealed it.


And something I can't even think of a name for.


MTQ
Anchiote Powder
Cumin
Soileau's
Hungarian Half-Sharp paprika
Garlic/Onion powder

The Anchiote has a consistency of silly putty. After schmearing it all over the loin:

Cool Squirt. where did you get the habanero sugar?

I did a 3 lb chunk of belly bacon today with the shagbark hickory syrup. Definitely different but tastes good.

MrsSTC's relatives from Tacoma sent it to me around Christmas. I think they found it at a store in Portland, OR. It is definitely hot.. Wouldn't want to accidentally sprinkle that on your Oatmeal in the morning. :eek:

I think it is an epidemic and I think I got it to thanks. Look forward to seeing the results next weekend.
You guys are making it hard for me to stop, I smoked 2 days last weekend and the same this weekend.
The worst part is I am already planning next weekend please don't stop.

it was on the package... Sugars : Spice and Tea Exchange, Purveyors of fine Spices, Herbs, Teas, & Accessories (http://www.spiceandtea.com/sugars-c-35.html)

Looks great Squirt, can't wait to see the results!

Deb & Sparky, I think we could make our own (I have dried habaneros from the garden). :)
