    Putting up ham hocks for a cold winter!

    In the brine (Ruhlman) for 3 days.



    Over hickory, cherry & apple. 175-200 in WSM. Took about 5.5 hours to get to 150 internal.



    Prettiest batch I've ever produced. Eager to try!



    $2.25/lb up from either $1.60 or $1.70/lb last fall. What's going on with pork prices?!?!

    Your ham hocks look delicious. But, I have never tried one. Maybe I need to change that.

    You are going to have some great soups and beans this winter. Love the color of those.

    Those look great, I haven't used ham hocks in years but after seeing Cliffs ham hock beans and your ham hocks the little bells in my head are ringing get some.

    Monty, those ham hocks look delicious. It's been many years since I have had ham hocks, may just have to give it a try soon. Thanks for sharing that great cook.

    Look like an excellent component for a “Choucroute Garni” to me!

    Oh, man, those look excellent! Been too long since I smoked up a batch of hocks!!! Those should come in handy for winter soups/stews!!
