I found the idea and base recipe on another board. Just changed this and that to my liking and gave it a try.

The results were absolutely delish!!

This is for 5 pounds of whole pork loin.

Large bowl add 4 cups warm water to dissolve mixture

1/2 cup kosher salt
3 teaspoons maple extract
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 tblspoon prague powder pink curing salt
1 tablespoon crushed peppercorns
4 bay leaves

add loins and 4 more cups cold water

refrigerate for 5 days

rinse and let pellicle for 1-2 hours

then smoke to your taste, I smoked with Pecan for a couple of hours at a temp of about 200 degrees
then removed it to a gas grill and finished at a temp of 325 and pulled it when the thermometer hit
145 degrees. It was edible off the grill, sliced some about 1/8 to 1/4 thick and ate by itself and on a
sandwich. It is a ham like texture with a really nice taste. Everyone loves it!

Went through a stage of making my own egg McMuffins in the microwave. Considered making my own Canadian bacon. Never pulled the trigger. Sounds good.

Sig220 in your post you referred to letting the pork "pellicle" for 1-2 hours.

What does letting the meat pellicle mean, and how do you do it?

I think your idea sounds great of making your own Canadian bacon.


Luck favors the prepared mind.

It's letting the meat dry out in the refrigerator till a thin skin forms from the drying out of the meat.
