Curing loin question for canadian bacon question

Discussion in 'Bacon' started by smokitifugotit, Feb 21, 2012.

  1. Well after realizing this question should have went to the bacon section (feel free to move:)) I went ahead with the dry cure, no injection. The home computer ain't working so pics are from my phone after down loading tapa talk after it was all mixed up. Sorry. I figure all the help I got from this place, I could maybe help somebody too. So here they are. Hope this works.

    And yes that is a packer on the second shelf. 16.34lbs on sale for $1.88/lb. It will be my first so wish me luck. Bigger than I wanted but for that price I couldn't say no. And I will let you know how it goes. Thanks

    Sounds and looks like you're set up and ready for some good smokes to come. I like to see that you have a fridge therm next to your meats...you obviously have indeed learned some good things regarding basic necessity. [​IMG]

    No need for an apology here, it's cool.

    Good score on the packer!

    If you did the cure right, looks like you will have some great Canadian Bacon!

    Good luck and good smoking.
