I was asked if I could smoke up some Canadian Bacon but find a way to do it with out all the sugar.

The thought was to use some thing other than sugar to sweeten it up.

Does anyone know of any recipe

Cheech-

One way to do this is to make up your brine starting with your salt and water then add you sugar a 1/4 cup at a time. Mix it in then take a 1/2 teaspoon and take a sip-swish it around in your mouth (don't swallow) then spit it out. If you want it a little sweeter add another 1/8 cup cup and repeat the tasting.

Don't forget-you can also use syrup and honey in place of white or brown sugar in brines.

Hope this gives you an idea where to start.

Thanks Earl,

I am currently experimenting with honey but was curious to see if others have used something other than sugar or honey for an example Splenda, or maybe a fruit or other natural sweetener.
