Thanks, That one appears to be a rub cure. I'm kinda of looking for an injection cure recipe.

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.

If you want to be really authentic/historically accurate, grind up some dried peas into meal, and roll the loin in it, instead of corn meal.
