    These make a nice snack. Ya get some meat down there by the head an the rest sort comes out like a pig jerky. Nice flavour in em.

    Did you put spices or seasoning on them? How long does it take to smoke them?

    Good one, Emerald.

    Coot, do they taste "hammy"? I'd have never thought to do that. Excellent example of not letting anything go to waste.

    Smoked ones well, down by the head end taste a bit like pulled pork, further up the ear be more like pork rinds.
