I don't think how you cured, dry, wet, and/or injected, has anything to do with peameal.

I believe "peameal" is an after the fact add-on to Canadian Bacon.

True Pea meal bacon is an injection cured meat but not smoked like Canadian bacon, then covered in peameal.
I agree with ya Mike. I've made it before from a recipe given to me by a Canadian. lol  He used to post here, I'll see if I can find the recipe if you are interested.

and Yes... TQ can be used. :)
