Canadian Bacon

1st Attempt at Canadian Bacon. I used Bearcarver's recipe from an old thread.

I had to cut the loin into 4 pieces so I could get to work on time.

The recipe uses TQ instead of cure #1 and I had to soak the pieces after the test fry to reduce the salt. I'm happy with the way it turned out. I used apple sawdust and AMNPS. I smoked at 130-200 until the bacon IT was 145. It is moist and not dried out.

Also made 4 butts into Buck Board Bacon. Here they are drying in front of a fan before cold smoking. (I like BBB better than Canadian Bacon)
