    So Father's Day decided to fill up the smoker. Canadian bacon on top.
    6+ lb pork loin, trimmed and cut in half
    1+ gallon of water brought to a boil with
    2 TBSP of peppercorns
    1 1/3 cups of Morton's Tender Quick
    3 tsp of garlic oil
    3 bay leaves
    1 TBSP of homemade "KC" type rub mix
    1 1/3 cup brown sugar
    1 shot of gin, throw all in the mix and give a good stir. Cool to room temperature and place loins in covered for seven days, eight days in my case secondary to work schedule.
    Rinsed several times and placed in cold clean water for 1/2 hour prior to smoking.
    Placed in 225 degree smoke for approximately 4 hour to an internal temp of 145 degrees Fahrenheit.
    In Smoker
    Pulled from smoker
    Rested overnight in the fridge and then sliced up with our new Cabelas smoker
    Very good, enjoyed cooked, in sandwiches, very tasty
    butthead66 and smokeymose like this.

    Looks really good, acres! I've been doing TQ Canadian Bacon for the Mrs for a while now, but with only the basic rub/cure and have never smoked it. She fries it up as fast as I can make it LOL! I may give this a try next time...🙂

    I fried up a chunk before smoking, to check for flavor, see if it needed more salt, etc. I would say the smoking adds a depth of flavor and enhances the brown sugar flavor. Thanks for looking.
