    last weekend when you were talking about canadian bacon with eggs and hasbrowns with those cinnamon rolls, you got me thinking, then wanting. So I got a loin out of the freezer and thawed it and it was just over 3 lbs. So I used 3 tbs of tenderquick and 4 tsp. of brown sugar. It's been sitting since sunday and figured I would put it on this morning since its nice and cool down here.

    I forgot take pics of the process, but here it is on the smoker.

    I'm using apple and cherry and gonna take it to 150 is supose, then slice it and fry it.

    Hope you all have a nice day.

    You're welcome, krusher!

    Loin is lookin' good! I generally take my Canadian Bacon to 140, which is fine if you plan to cook it after slicing. I have tried it at 150, which still requires a fry pan and to 160 where it can be just sliced and eaten. I like the 140, then a sizzle in the pan. But try them all! That's what the thing is about anyway. With our hobby you CAN have it your way!

    here it is done, tastes real good,,,it's a little on the salty side, but for my tastebuds, that's a good thing, but my blood pressure and taste buds don't agree...funny how that works aint it.

    now thats pretty:

    I think ron's still got more than me, I collect up a bunch of stuff and then smoke it all ot once, I just wait for a good excuse, like today we got a family reunion to go to and I'm taking half of the beef, and half of the pork, but I still got 8 lbs. for myself,,plus the bacon![​IMG]

    looks great crush-and ya I think they are Ron!-and yes monty I also take mine to the 140ish-and fry before cooking-as far as tenderquick-I hear all the salt stories way to often-have and will prolly never use the stuff.

    tenderquick is good , I just let it go too long, the last was 4 days and I thought it could have used a little more salt taste, thats why I let this one go for 6.. I think 5 will be perfect,, know I need to go back to the freezer and sneak another one past my wife heh he heh....
