    Those pics are quite the tease. How about some information as how you prepared it? It's all good my friend.

    I agree with Rich it looks good but we'd like to hear the process

    Well i cured it for 7 days with some brown sugar, salt, maple syrup , rosemary, fresh garlic, and thyme oh and whole black pepper corns. in about a gallon water with some cure#1. i really don't follow any type of recipe. well then i smoked at 150 for about three hours then up to 190 till it reached internal temp. of 155.

    that's about it

    Sounds good can you taste any of the maple syrup in the final product?

    ya i was surprised but it stands out giving it a great flavor and i didn't use much of it about a 1/3 of a cup give or take.

    You can get a nice boneless shoulder but WHY??? I would just get a shouder and filet it. You can save abunch of money that way. Or you can get a butt and it even easier to cut the bone out. Now I do really like the canadian bacon you have made there. I have never thought of putting it into the¬†weave sox thou. Great Job [​IMG]
