Hey y'all

First time making Canadian bacon. Soak in pops brine for 7 days. Rinsed off and did my fry test. Tasted good to me. Doing black pepper for one and garlic powder for the other. Ran out of Saran Wrap so had to use foil. But letting them sit over night then going to smoke them tomorrow. Stay tuned.
Tuned in. 

I would leave them unwrapped.     I do for a couple days to let it dry out and form a pellicle.
Looks like a good start, Good on you for doing it, I just found a good deal an some loins, Walmart had a big selection yesterday, So threw some in the freezer for this spring and I will be doing the same... is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
