    When making bacon from that last pig I made a batch of peameal bacon too...

    Brined cured the back loin for 8 days....

    rolled in corn meal...

    fried a slice for a taste test on a biscuit...

    and served some as breakfast during deer camp...


    it was moist and tender inside....

    you have the option to hot smoke the bacon but I like it best fried.

    Thanks for looking!

     The American version of canadian bacon is cured, smoked, hunk of pork loin. The actual Canadian bacon is not smoked it is pickle cured, rolled in pea meal or corn meal then fried. You can cook the whole log but slicing and frying is the best IMO..  It's good stuff!!
