Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Loin - Bacon

Followed a recipe in Charcuterie - Brine (Kosher salt, Cure, Sugar, Sage, Thyme, Garlic) 48 hours, pat dry, Uncovered fridge 24 hours and then smoked with Dome 210 and Internal 150

Mrs fastcar which is monitoring for me with iGrill says it looks "anemic"

I guess the ultimate test will be in the fry pan, but any comments ?   Thanks

    I think you are making "Canadian bacon" Don't know anything about it. What wood are you using for smoke?

    Just did this two weeks ago, turned out great.  I brined for 4 days.  Posted the pics, so you should be able to find them.

    I have made bacon several times. It may not look as pink as store bought depending on if you used pink salt (salt and sodium nitrate) and how much. I bet it tastes great if it's anything like mine. SWMBO won't buy it from the store anymore.
