That's some good looking CB, the wife says I have to start wrapping mine in frogmats to get the little grid lines.

Another great cut of pork to use for hillbilly bacon and CB is pork cushion meat. It's virtually all meat, tender and makes a lean HBB. I found them at Restaurant Depot in a cryovac 3-pack. They are less expensive than either a loin or butt. Give them a try. You won't be disappointed.

I'm not familiar with term "pork cushion meat".  Is it called anything else that I might recognize?

I've only heard it called cushion meat. It comes from the pork shoulder picnic from the anterior side of the humerous bone. If you google cushion meat pork you'll get a better explanation than I've given.

Looks like it turned out perfect. I like the idea of wrapping it in the frog mat too!
Bob and Doug Mckenzie encompass all that is Canadian ehh.

The frog mat keeps it round and looking good. I think it might help it cook more uniformly too.

All this time we've all been thinking the marks on the smoked meats at the butcher were made by some commercially available netting. I for one didn't know that the commercial producers were wrapping their meats in frog mats. Go figure. :o :o
