“I used to make this in a restaurant where I worked. I have modified it for the home cook. You definitely need curing salt for this recipe. When you buy the pork butt, ask the butcher for the curing salt. Mine just gave me the salt I needed. I make this about twice a summer. It's the hit of any BBQ!!” - by DJFoodie

"I smoked a five pound blade in shoulder roast last weekend. It took less than 4 hours to get the internal temperature to 160 degrees. I pulled it off of the smoker and it was the best, juiciest ham ..." See moreI've ever had. Tasso is traditionally smoked until it is so dry and concentrated that it's rarely eaten by itself. I was able to get Morton meat cure at our grocery near the salt. I wasn't able to find smoked paprika, so I added plain. And I used Mrs. Butterworth's maple flavored syrup instead of honey. My family loves it!"
