Prepped the Coppa for Tasso by splitting into 4 equal thickness strips in this case approx 1 1/2" each.
Made my rub and applied .
Cryovac-ed and will refrigerate overnight.
Ready for the smoker in the morning

Cut Tasso from the Cryovac and placed on Bacon Hooks



Hung in the smoker with my Pro Q providing the smoke-Oak


I set the thermometer to buzz at 152F
Ran smoker at 120F for  2 hours no smoke-Then started applying smoke raising cabinet temps 10F every hour until a max cabinet of 180F until internal temps reach 152F.
Pic is part way through the process showing an internal of 111F at the time.

Looks good - and I mean REALLY good! 

But in Montana, we've never really heard of Tasso ~ what exactly is it?

Tasso is a spicy cured pork used in Cajun cooking.
I do not believe that that many people eat it out of hand.
It is an essential ingredient as a flavoring agent in Jambalaya.
But at my house, I love the flavor so much that I have Tasso-ed almost every meat that is available.
Because the meat is thin and cut in 1 1/2" -2" strips, it cures very quickly and is ideal to spice today and smoke cook tomorrow.
