Snowball makes Canadian Bacon with q-view

Discussion in 'Smoking Bacon' started by snowball, Jul 26, 2008.

  1. Well it all began on July 18,2008. The 11.15 lb Pork loin is trimmed.



    Looks good to me



    Cure and sugar applied and all tucked in



    Well here we are July 29,2008 Time for a rinse and soak (as per instructions)



    Dry it well , cut in half to fit into smoker



    And the wait begins



    Before you know it, Done (160 Degrees)



    Here is a better shot



    So, I sliced a small piece and......



    The wife made fresh smoked Canadian toasted bacon sandwiches for lunch



    Turned out great. Thanks for all the great posts with the excellent info.

    Only 2 minor problems. (1) ran out of propane. I knew i was low but........
    (2) Could not get the temp down to 220 where I wanted it. Had on lowest setting with vent open to let out some heat. The temp stayed around 250.

    Nice job, thanks for the Qview.[​IMG]

    What cure did you use?
     
  4. I used a dry cure
    Morton's Tenderquick and white sugar. I think I will try Brown Sugar next time.

    Regards,
    Snowball
