  3. Thanks, That one appears to be a rub cure. I'm kinda of looking for an injection cure recipe.

    I don't think how you cured, dry, wet, and/or injected, has anything to do with peameal.

    I believe "peameal" is an after the fact add-on to Canadian Bacon.

  5. True Pea meal bacon is an injection cured meat but not smoked like Canadian bacon, then covered in peameal.

    If you want to be really authentic/historically accurate, grind up some dried peas into meal, and roll the loin in it, instead of corn meal.

    Great Mike. [​IMG]
     

     Mike would "Modern Cure" be a brand name?  I'm just guessing..
