Canadian Bacon Trifecta (w/ lots of Qview)!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I had been discussing doing some canadian bacon with my friend Paul from B. Nektar Meadery and smoking it over some oak cubes that they had used in mead making.

So about two weeks ago I picked up 20lb of pork loin, cleaned and cut it into four 5lb pieces. I put it into my usual CB cure of TQ, brown sugar and maple sugar and set it to curing for the past 10 days.

Today was the day to make the bacon.

Paul brought over a bag of oak cubes that had been used to "oak age" a mead last year and a few growlers of beer.

We decided to do two "plain" canadian bacons seasoned with just the cure

then with the others we made one with a cracked back pepper rub

and the last with a paprika rub

I got the smoker warmed up and put some oak cubes in to test the smoke out - it smelled great, rich oak smoke with a hint of sweetness underneath from the mead.

We put the bacons into the smoker around 1:30pm and opened up the half gallon growlers

and finally around 6:30pm it was done.

The CBP coated bacon:

The paprika bacon:

And the traditional bacon:

Its a half gallon bottle of beer, usually you get them from a brewer and gets filled right at the tap. When its empty you can go back and refill them.
