    Wife was at the store and pick this up for me. [​IMG]

    Might just have to keep her !!!


    Going to cut in half, one half will get smoke tomorrow and the other half is going in pops

    brine for 14 days for Canadian Bacon

    here a link to pops brine http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/110799/pops692 7s-wet-curing-brine


    The one going in the brine is right at 5lbs



    I did add a 1/2 cup of garlic power to the brine and cut the salt down to 1/2 cup


    Mix the brine and in it goes. Seem like I forgot something [​IMG]



    Now I remember what I forgot. Got this fancy injector and forgot to inject the loin with brine.



    And also forgot to trim the fat off the loin.


    Not the best job trimming the fat off.


    see ya in 14 days [​IMG]

    I got tired of the cheap ones not working right . This one works so much better.
     
  6. To be honest, I think I know a lot.  Thankfully the older I get, the wiser I get, and the more I realize that no matter how much I know, there is more I don't know.  I never knew that Canadian Bacon was made from pork loin.  But now I know more than I did when I got up this morning.  Thanks.  I can't wait to see the finished product.

    Time to smoke the CB. Going to cold smoke it for 4 hours then adding some heat to it

    and take it to 145 IT.

    Took it out of the brine yesterday. Then soak it in water for an hour. Put it in the frig overnight



      In my UDS ready for some cold smoke.

  14. That looks very very tasty.  Could you send me a couple of slices?  I'm just having my coffee and I could make a great breakfast sandwich with that.  Good job.

    Very Nice!!!

    How much brine did you inject?

    I need an injector like yours

    Mine has the sharp end, and need a blunt end with lots of holes

    Where did you get it?
