***HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE***
Canadian Bacon Recipe Step #1
First you will need to prepare a liquid curing brine to transform your pork loin into fresh bacon. Take all your ingredients above except your pork loin and place it into 4 cups of water to boil in order to dissolve the salts. Once the salts are dissolved, add in the remaining 4 cups of ice water. This should be enough to bring your boiled water down to a chilled tempreture.
Canadian Bacon Recipe Step #2
Next, once your curing brine is chilled you are going to place your pork loin into a ziplock bag and pour in your curing brine. close the bag up tight while trying to remove as much air as possible. Next you are going to place it in a bowl (to avoid potential leaks) and place it in the fridge for 4-5 days. Each day make sure to flip your bag.
Canadian Bacon Recipe Step #3
After 4-5 days your pork loin will be fully cured and ready to be smoked. Take our your cured pork loin and rinse off any bits of the brine then place it in a bowl of cold water for 1-2 hours. This will help remove some of the saltiness and give it a more balanced taste. Once that is done, take out your cured pork loin and dry it using paper towel and let it sit open to the air while you get your grill set up for smoking.
Canadian Bacon Recipe Step #4
Once you have your grill set up indirect for smoking you are going to place the cured pork loin on the grill opposite the coals and begin smoking using your favourite hardwood about 225 degrees for around 2 hours or until the internal tempreture reaches 145 degrees. Once your internal tempreture reaches 145 degree take it off the grill and let rest until cool.
Canadian Bacon Recipe Step #5
After it has cooled you are now ready to slice it up and begin to feast. (note: if you leave it in the fridge for a few days it will allow the smoke to distribute throughout the bacon a bit more.)
That’s it, Enjoy!
