Default "Smoked" Canadian Bacon.

"Smoked" Canadian Bacon.
Last weekend I put the pork loin in to cure and now it is time for a light smoking.
I almost forgot I needed to do this today but it is in the smoker as we speak.
So many things going on at once.

Worth, pork loin is on sale at HEB this week. I would like to feed the freezer but couldn't get Jan interested in buying any. The smaller packs were in the $5 range.

Salt next weekend will be Smoked and cured Habanero pork sausage.
I dreamed up the recipe this week.
I might even (no I will) do some the same way but Slim Jim's too.
Something I can carry around without spoiling.
I dont know what on earth has gotten into me I have so much energy and desire to do things.

Worth, I think you condition is contagious. I'm thinking about starting tomato seeds today just to oversummer the plants.

My grandfather used to make a dish with pork loin. It was cut into 3/8 to 1/2" steaks and smothered in a tomato based sauce. I know there was Louisiana hot sauce in it. I'm going to try to replicate it.

I just talked to Jan and she is going to pick up a pork loin after work. She asked, "What are we going to do with it?" I told her about the idea above and that we could slice it thin and roll it up with sausage and cabbage. She liked both ideas.

Back to what your thread is about - I had planned on making Canadian bacon soon. I'm thinking of cooking it for the 4rth of July. We are going to smoke a small turkey for the 4rth. Smoking Canadian Bacon sounds good.

Even though the trichinae worm is almost non existent in commercial pork I dont take chances.
Here is the chart I go by when cooking and smoking pork cured or uncured.

Thank you Salt.
Be careful what you ask for.
This stuff is safe to eat as is no more cooking necessary and not recommended.
In my opinion it is the only way to (((really))) enjoy pork loin.
Tomorrow when it is cooled off I will cut into it and see what we have.
