    After a one week honey cure I apple wood smoked my first Canadian bacon pork loin.  I've never liked pork loin as most of the meat is the dryer light colored meat.  That said, I have changed my opinion of the loin.  I had meant to smoke it for a bit in the smoker and then finish it off in the oven, but over cooked it to 200 degrees.  Still, it has great flavor.

    8 pound pork loin

    Morton Tender Quick

    1/3 cup honey

    Cure one week

    Apple wood smoked for 90 minutes at 190-200 degrees

    Wrapped in foil and placed in conventional oven at 225 for about 3 hours

    I meant to take it out at 160 Degrees, but over cooked to 200

    Next up: Jack Daniels Bacon

     Not every 'mistake' is a bad thing. Sometimes you learn something great! Your CB looks great!
