    First Try at Buck Board Bacon. I deboned the pork butt and fillet it out. I also hit a sale on pork tenderloin so I decided to do some more Canadian Bacon too.

    I cured both cuts for 14 days. Then did a two hour soak with water change at the half way mark.

    I usually use my big chief to do my Canadian Bacon, but the cord with faulty so that was a no go. I fired up the A-Maze –N Pellet smoker with maple pellets and cold smoked the pork loin and the BBB with two full trays. Then tonight I finished the CB off in the oven over a try of water at 170 Deg to an internal temp of 143. Got to use the newly tuned up slicer and I am so happy with my $40 slicer. Enjoy the pictures

    I wish. Just  need to find more space in the refrigerator and time to make it more often.
    Thanks for the kind words AL
    Thank you!

    I got a GLOBE CHEFMATE SLICER MODEL GC12D that I picked up at a garage sale. The guy want $175 and the unit's sliding cradle was froze. I got him down to $45 and told him i wanted a receipt  and i wanted to return it if it could not be fixed, Or i could give him $40 and take it as is. SO $40 it was. I took it to a local appliance repair place and the guy cleaned it up and made some adjustments and it is as good as new,
