    Default Texas Wild Hawg Canadian Bacon

    I have been killing a few hawgs this summer out of necessity all have been fairly small less than 50lb dressed. I had 3 ground into sausage and two I cooked for a neighbor for a Surprise Birthday party for his wife a few weeks ago free of charge. Last weekend he pulled in the gate bearing gifts. He killed a 245lb er and brought me a loin and a bottle of Glenfildech as payback. I cut part into fillets & a roast and made Canadian Bacon form the tail.
    The Cure
    1 cup Kosher salt
    1 cup Maple Syrup
    1/3 cup Brown sugar
    3 Bay leaves
    3 cloves garlic
    1 tbl Peppercorns
    8 tsp pink salt

    3 3/4lb trimmed weight in the cure for 4 days

    as it came from the refer

    I soaked in with 3 changes of water over 1.5 hrs

    then into the refer uncovered overnight

    on to the Mini WSM with hickory at 190

    after 4 hrs we hit 140

    rested under a foil tent for 20 min before slicing to package

    Be kind to me, it's not my fault I'm a "PORK-A-HOLIC"!!
