    I live in South Central PA.  I just started making my own meats this year.  I have an MES40 smoker with cold smoker attachment.  I have been reading the Marianski books and so far I have made snack sticks, maple breakfast links, smoked polish sausage, and bacon.  I have been reading alot of posts on here recently and decided to try Pops brine for some Canadian Bacon.  They are curing now (day4).  I injected then with the brine as well.  I bacon I made  used a dry cure with brown sugar and maple syrup.  Turned out great!  I just bought 2 full bellies (24lbs) so I can make some more as the last batch didn't last long.  I would try one dry cure and one in the brine, but refigerator is full with the brining Canadian bacon.  I'll try the brine next time for the bacon.  I also hunt and process my own deer.  Most of my sausage has been 50/50 pork and venison.  I'd like to try making some sausage with pork only.  So much to try!
