    I'm getting ready to do some Canadian bacon later today and I thought I’d try some Q-view.
    Starting with 14 pounds of loin that’s been cured in equal parts TQ and sugar for the last 7 days.

    Washed them off good and soaked for 1.5 hours. Sliced the end off for a fry test and was good to go. It has a nice color to it.

    Before I stuck them back in the frig to dry I took the smallest one and rubbed it down with CBP, then decided to cut it and half and add some cayenne pepper to half. We’ll see what happens.

    I’ll let ya know how they come out, Dan

    It got a little late to post last night, but here's a pic when I pulled them,

    This is the peppered one sliced this morning. excellent taste if I do say so myself. :) I wish I had done a couple of them like this.

    One lesson learned is that I had the temp probe in one of the larger pieces and pulled them all when it hit 155, but the smaller ones ended up at about 165. still good but would have liked it a little moister.

    Thanks for looking
