    Looks great! I've done the canadian bacon before but I used HiMountain buckboard bacon cure. It came out great. I've never been able to find Morton's tenderquick in my grocery store...
     
  7. So all you used was tender quick? Nothing else?

    Looks good Mike. I've been looking into bacon. Was that made from a loin? (as you can see I don't know much about bacon)

    great looking bacon Mike-I use buckboards myself-works wonders-I keep mine in chubs till I need to slice-keeps the flavor under wraps.and ya 2 weeks ago a loin and after 12 hrs. dang good bacon
     
  16. Yeah, he must have used Cowgirl's recipe, because the pictures tasted the same![​IMG] That looks like what I'm hoping for as soon as the weather looks good six days out!

    WELL AS I READ ALL THE RESPONSES..THANK YOU !!
    now for the questions..as i stated i have had a bout with the flu ..so i didnt get to fancy with this.. just tenderquick..i know boring to some but when ya feel like chit its hard to want to creat something..next time i will probably feel better and will give it some extras.. however this does have some great flavor..after stopping at the grocers on my way home i saw they are charging [email protected] for canadian bacon.. this pork loin cost me $7.51..about 4 1/2 lbs..probably 50 cents in tenderquick..and maybe a buck for wood chips .. very cost saving..lol ..for those of you looking for a first time bacon.. if you want to try some extras .. i highly recomend cowgirl..aka patty..she has some wonderfull ideas for diffrent ways to make bacon.. enjoy ..mike
