Makin' bacon.

My brother added me to a new group on Facebook called makin' bacon. So off to costco I go to get a pork belly. A buddy of mine brought over a pork loin for Canadian bacon. The recipe we used is in the pictures. The pictures of the loin is after 24 hours. The first flip. We will use an electric smoker the first time just because its more dummy proof. That and its cold out right now. I dont want to have to babysit the fire constantly. Its going in the smoker in 8 more days

It's great to see the kids getting in there, Jon. They look proud of their work.

Looks good..I bet you guys can't wait..with eggs and home fries...

Have you ever tried Peameal bacon? What you guys call Canadian bacon isn't really Canadian..Peameal is the original Canadian bacon..

Interesting. I always thought Canadian bacon was ham.

We think smoked ham originated in Virginia

Every now and then I watch episodes of that cable show "The United States of Bacon."

That overweight host probably has as much fat in his arteries as in the bacon dishes he samples and reviews.

I'm confused. Mom always had Peameal Bacon which my Dad preferred over regular bacon (the one the British call 'streaky' or a 'rasher'. Later on I came to know it as Canadian Bacon but I assumed it was still Peameal, just known as 'Canadian.'

So what is the 'Canadian Bacon' that the Americans know?

What we call Canadian bacon is cut from the loin. It's cured but not smoked.
