Canadian Bacon

16 pounds of pork loin, brined since last Tuesday according to the Ruhlman charcuterie recipe.

About 12 hours uncovered in the fridge, then on the hickory smoke for 3 hours.  The XL held steady at 190 the whole time.

Very dense, pink, and slightly salty, just like it is supposed to be.  Last batch was little too pork roast.

    Awesome! That is on the soon to be done list! I am impressed at 190 steady. I have a hard time getting below about 215.

    Doc, looks great. Ill take one of those zip locks please. I have sent you one UPS shipping label to cover the s/h, and have forwarded an email attesting to the fact that I have won 50 Million US dollars in cash held for me to claim, in Nigeria. That ought to cover it. Right?

    I inherited that from my folks when they passed away.  It works OK for our limited use.  I stripped it down before this cook and ran the blade against a sharpening stone, and it cut much better than the last time.

    Impressive for sure. Did you smoke at 190°F dome temp or grid temp?

    I'm always impressed by the meat smoking and slicing guys! Something I wanna play with one day. The wife have me "the look" when I brought up a meat slicer.

    Great looking meat doc!

    Especially for low and slow I monitor both dome and grid (and meat).  That was an off the top of my head average, tat the beginning he grid temp was running 180's, the dome was running about 20 degrees higher, eventually they got more synchronized within about 5 degrees and held very steady right at 190.

    May 5th to July 13th, taken out of the freezer, fried and sandwhiched.   Marty's Big Bun, Miracle Whip, sauteed onion (under the bacon), Romain lettuce and tomato.  Nice quick pick up meal.

    Ongoing saga of this Canadian Bacon smoke.  Omelet with onion, bacon and goat cheese.  Ooo, this was a nice easy to eat dinner.
