That 5 pounds of CB I made a few weeks ago didn't last for s__t !
I found a nice 8.7 lb pork loin and decided to make some more.

Whole Pork Loin:

Sale $1.79 LB from "Giant":

After 8 days of curing with TQ, sliced for salt test:

Salt taste tested just right:

8.7 lbs of pork loin ready for drying overnight in fridge for smoking tomorrow:

Thanks for keeping an eye on me,

Thanks guys,
I can't wait. The first batch of this stuff I did just melted in my mouth, and the mouths I gave it away to.

Gotta get ready to start smokin'.

That stuff is really addicting and you have to start giving it away because we just want to make it not so much on the eating it. Don't get me wrong I eat the poop out of it but making it is far more fun. Then you will move onto the really hard stuff like buckboard bacon and then you go looking for the holy grale "Pork Bellies" for the really good stuff. Once you have started looking for the bellies you are hooked and you mite as well start seeing if you can get into the Betty Ford rehab house.
Welcome To The Addiction
Ps. I should get a cut for sending her patiences

I may be a little backwards (I've been told that), because the very first meat smoke I did was an 11 LB belly. 2nd was 2 X 2.5 lb loins, and now an 8.7 lb loin. I have Buckboard Bacon in my sights, I already have the Hi Mountain cure, but I have a couple questions that I'll be asking before I tackle that. I always search and research, before I ask the questions.

Here is the final product of my second smoking of pork loin to Canadian Bacon. I sliced 6 smoked pork chops too (about 5/8" thick). That was as thick as the slicer would go, and exactly what I wanted anyway.
Ahhhhh---Melts in my mouth !

Ready for slicing:

6 Smoked Pork Chops & lots of CB:

All bagged up for freezing:

Thanks to ALL,
