    Canadian bacon “how to” questions

    Thanks pc farmer. Appreciate the help. Why wouldn’t you smoke 30 hours straight? I’ve done that with my bacon several times. Hoping there is something I’m not missing or doing wrong! Thanks again

    Canadian bacon “how to” questions

    So I am doing my first batch of Canadian bacon. I just bought the loin and am getting ready to drop it into pops brine. Question is can I do this just like cold smoked bacon? My process would be to leave it in pops brine for 2 weeks. I would also inject the loin with the brine as well. Pull it...

    Is my bacon ok

    Outside temps ranged from mid 40’s to low 30’s. Used maple sawdust in an amps. Weather was wet and rainy pretty much the hole time but smoker was under cover. I’m guessing this had something to do with it.

    Is my bacon ok

    Cured my bacon in pops brine for 14 days. I hung the belly’s in my garage in front of a fan over night to dry it out. Smoked the belly’s for 36 hours. When I pulled them off the belly’s were wet to the touch. Why are my belly’s so wet and is that ok?

    Turkey Galantine

    Bird was fantastic. 3 different people including my mother (who’s thanksgiving turkey trumps everything) said it was the best turkey they have ever had. Will definitely do again. Well worth the effort. Ribs were outstanding as well. Merry Christmas to all!

    I’ve never done it either. Took more over an hour. Probably should have started with a chicken but I got through it
