First Canadian Bacon try.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello there,


Following Bearcarvers step-by-step, i attempted my first go at Canadian bacon. My loins have been curing for twelve days, eight pounds total. I pulled them out of cure and gave them a bath.

I cut a piece from the center for cure penetration/fry test.

Pink to the center, good good.

Fry test was perfect. So i seasoned them up with CBP onion and garlic powder and into a 130 degree smoker to form a pellicle. It is already 8pm so it is gonna be a long ride, cannot wait !

It is now five a.m. here and i pulled everything off the MES at 145 degrees. So i ended up doing one hour at smoker temp of 130, one hour at 150, then added a fully loaded Amnps with hickory and it took seven hours from there to hit 145. I will let it rest while i get some shut eye and slice later and post final thoughts. 

fresh from the smoker.

Sorry about the cell phone pics, will get my camera out one of these days.
