Thread Starter 
So first off i want to say Thank You to DaveOmak for the assist. It just goes to show how helpful this forum is and speaks volumes of its members!

So luckily me and Dave use the samme cure (Excalibur blue ribbon maple).

So took 2 pork loins averaged out to 6 lbs total. Worked out to 10 days in cure, rinsed and soaked for1 hour. Put in fridge to form pellicle then gave 2 coats of Real Maple syrup and a light dusting of CBP.

Now into smoker where temp is 40deg onthis Colorado evening smoke is mix of Maple and Alder(all from Todd).

Also happy to announce my wife is the bestest or she just likes my belly bacon LOL. She suprised me with n this

Ladies and gentlemen the final Q view.

All sliced up into 1/4 inch slices (really need a slicer)

Can't forget the fry test! drool.gif

And finally all vac packd with Lisa's bags.

Gotta say 6 hours of Alder cold smoke was plenty. Perfect salt n sweet not so much on maple flavor but definitely will do more!

Thanks and good evening
