Second Canadian Bacon, this time with Ham too, Yummo! (w/Qview)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
The first attempt was so successful, I have several requests for more, so I made a bit extra this time, and for me personally, I think this time it tastes better.

It sat in Pop's Brine (with extra) for 14 days, I did not inject at all.

Canadian Bacon Recipe:
1 gallon of water
3/4 cup of Kosher salt (I liked the kosher versus sea for this recipe)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs cure #1 (Prague Powder #1)
1 Tbs garlic powder
1 Tbs onion powder
1 Tbs molasses
1 tsp Almond Extract

Ham Recipe:
1 gallon of water
3/4 cup of Sea Salt (I wanted more salt taste for this recipe)
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 Tbs cure #1 (Prague Powder #1)


With ambient temp between 55-60 degrees F, I cold smoked with the AMNPS using Todd's cherry dust for 6 hours.
Fired up my Traeger at 175 degrees F with a HOC blend of Lumberjack pellets (hickory, oak & cherry).

The weather was wet and chili most of the day and night, but I had a Sportbrella over the smokers the whole time.

I ended up smoking at 175 for 9 hours until each loin hit 145F internal temperature. I pulled, iced them for about 10 minutes as it was 2AM so I could put them in the fridge and go to bed. Then sliced them all up the next morning and vacuumed sealed them all up.

All 3 loins just before slicing:

Ham slices:


The whole load all sliced up:
