    hello everyone

    i did 6 pounds of canadian bacon using the morton tenderquick recipe it turned out great i used hickory for smoke i like the morton recipe better than the buckboard bacon cure on the loin bacon i still like buckboard bacon on a pork butt

    buckboard bacon has a stronger bacon flavor when you use it on loin it tastes like a lean piece of bacon using the morton tenderquick gives it a milder canadian bacon taste

    thanks Huey...I'll use the morton's on the loin ,sounds like the buckboard would work well on a belly also ,as I like a heavy bacon n smoke flavor ...I used the mortons sugar and smoke flavor dry cure ...is very good ,but just a tad too salty ,maybe I'll shorten up the cure time a little on my next try [​IMG]
