    Should my Canadian bacon be pinker/hammier? Is this normal?

    I smoked the Canadian bacon I've been working on yesterday. I had 9.17 pounds of meat cut into 3 pieces, 1 gallon of water, .25% #1, 2% salt, and 1% sugar.

    Well, this is my first attempt at ever making Canadian bacon. I allowed the meat to cure for 12 days. I got it out this morning, washed and soaked it, and then cut a piece out of the middle of the thickest piece and fried it up for the wife and I. Again, this is my first time. It kind of tasted...
