Joni and I got some pork tenderloins on a deal. After all the sandwiches and grillin ,we decided to make some of our own canadian bacon, based on the formulas here. We tried to follow Cowgirl's recipe ( I think it was) Anyway- whomever it was and all, they came out GREAT!!!! We owe a huge debt of gratitude to all whom have posted CB recipes on here,,, this would not have turned out like it did without all of you. We raise our glasses of JB to you!
