just went through your post, now you made me hungry, anyway i guess that distinctive bacon flavor comes from the meat you use and not so much the rub or brine, i've had commercial canadian bacon and to me it taste more like ham, i've never had the buckboard bacon will have to try and smoke some.I'm relatively new at smoking, been doing ribs and chicken for a year or two but would like to get into some different stuff. thanks
