Hello from Montana,

I am using a Great Smokey Mountain propane smoker and I have not had any issues except for operator error!!!  But the one question I do have is about the brine for Canadian Bacon.  The recipe called for 1 1/2 cups kosher salt along with sugar, cure salt, garlic, thyme, and sage.  After trying the Canadian bacon it was salty.  Not bad but next time I want to take the salt down a bit.  It was in the brine for 48 hours then in the fridge for 24 hours.  Do I take the salt down and by how much or less time in the brine??

Thanks in advance
We finally stayed above zero last night with light snow. Hopefully stay above zero at least until I get a bunch of meat smoked.

Ruger! Welcome to the forum!  My bet is if you use that search tab at the top of the page you can find an answer.  i know it helped me!

Again, welcome!

~~Are you getting some snow today, we got about 6 inches and probably heading your way
I did find what I was looking for,  all of the recipes that I found on this site used about half the amount of salt.  They also brined it longer then what I did.  I still ate the whole think over a couple of weeks!!!!! is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
