Picked up a pork loin to make some Canadian bacon.

Want to kick up the heat a bit for this batch.

Thinking of adding a half tablespoon of Mad Dog 357 hot sauce to the brine.

Anyone tried hot sauce in their brine?

Lately I've been using habenero powder to add heat.

Not sure if you want to look thru that link or not . That's some I did awhile back . I used the phosphate injection and one got some Franks red hot . It added flavor , but not much heat . I used about 1/2 TBLS in maybe 2 cups of liquid . I've also used TQ and Carolina reaper powder on an eye round for dried beef . Now that's good stuff , and hot .
Be interested in your results .

Sounds good.
The mad dog 357 is pretty potent, wondering if adding it to the brine would help with a more even distribution. I would think so, but not sure.

I think it would . Just have to figure out the amount that works . I had thought about putting some red pepper flakes ( TBLS ? ) in a quart mason jar then filling with water . Let that sit a few days , then add that as part of the gallon for Pops . Might get more heat that way ? Still add the sauce .
When I used the TQ and the reaper powder , it was all the way thru the meat .
Turned it red .

But I'd like to see it done with Pop's . So I'll be watching .
