I haven't used TenderQuick so I don't have direct experience. However, I have used Buckboard on several occasions .... all with great results ..... except for once. I was distracted when I needed to take the loin out of the cure so I left it in for three or four extra days. The canadian bacon was good but too salty ..... even after soaking is cold water before cooking. I suspect you may experience a similar result. Good luck. Just had a second thought. Even if you can't smoke it when the cure time is up, take it out of the cure, rinse all the cure off it and store it in the frige. Then smoke it when the weather permits.
