    I finally got my Canadian Bacon smoked today. I cured this 6 pound loin for 8 days in TQ, onion powder, lemon pepper, garlic powder and CBP. Rinsed it well and let it soak overnight. Pulled it and rinsed again, set it in the fridge for 2 days covered. Seasoned again with the same and added a little turbinado sugar.

    Here it is in the MES set on 180.

    I had to do some running today so I stoked up the Smoke Daddy with some sassafras and a little hickory herb pellets. Didn't have any juice so I just put water in the pan. Sorry guys.... I can tell the difference when I use juice or punch in the pan.

    Nice looking CB! I'm down to a few packages left. Last time I did 15 pounds so I wouldn't run out so fast.[​IMG]

    Is there a tutorial for this?

    What cut, how long to cure, smoke, etc?

    This seems like it'd be a great item to bring to holiday party's or giveaway to friends and fam for their functions

    Thanks Man. One thing I did different on these is let them soak overnight in the fridge in water. Don't think I'll do that again. I believe a good rinsing and let it stand in the fridge would be fine.

    Great looking CB there sir. Did the soak take too much flavor out?

    I think it did. Or it was the cut of meat. It was really good but not as flavorful as the last batch. Thought it might have been the overnight soak.

    Now thats some mighty fine looking there Dave. I really like the canadian bacon but I like alittle more fat (for flavor) on mine so I do mine out of a shoulder.
     
  12. Looks great. I have my first if the fridge curing. I can't wait to smoke it and eat.
