Smoked Canadian Bacon
By Tim Wynn

1 6lbs.(approx.) pork loin cut in two

1 gal cold of water in a food safe 5 gallon bucket



1c sea salt

1c granulated sugar

1c brown sugar

1Tbsp of cure salt

20 peppercorns

3 cloves of crushed garlic

tie loins to make rounder


Place pork loins in the brine and put a water filled 1 gallon ziplock bag on them to further submerge them.


Put a lid on the bucket and stick it in the refrigerator for 10 days. No need to inject the cure into them when curing this many days. It will penetrate 100%.


Day 10 pull them out of the cure rinse and soak in 2 baths of cold water to pull a little of the saltiness out for 2 hrs.


Dry and put on racks then refrigerate for 12-24 hrs. until a nice pellicle (a sort of skin to allow the smoke to adhere better) is formed. Tim's took 16 hrs.


Tim loaded them in his SmokinTex 1400 at 225F for 4.5 hrs. with cherry pellets until the internal was 145F.

Pull and let them cool before vacuum sealing for 48 hrs. to have the smoke fully penetrate.


Tim says, "Then I took a sharp knife, cut the twine off and started slicing off some pork loveliness. You can eat this cold for a ham or slice it thick for smoked pork chops. I like to drop a dollop of butter in the skillet and pan fry for a couple of minutes per side. Try it... You will absolutely love what you can create at home in your spare time. Just a fair warning, if you give any to friends or family you will be making batches of this all of the time. The brine has also been used on chicken, turkey, and venison back strap with wonderful results! Enjoy."


Thanks, Tim!

SmokinTex Testimonial
By B&E owner David Andrews

"Here at B&E we will NEVER use another smoker. Before buying the first big smoker, the 1500-CXLD, I tested the small smoker like I tested several other brands. HANDS DOWN  SmokinTex  put them all under the porch. I bought the first 1500-CXLD, then six months later my second one and now we are about to order our third one.


The smaller SmokinTex? Working its rear end off every day still and this is seven years later!

We ship around 1.3 tons every week of chicken, brisket and ribs. Now a word about service from SmokinTex, if I have a question about doing maintenance or I need a part like a thermostat or an element, Hoss, it's done. I get it shipped to me here in Mexico immediately. Not enough I can say about the people at SmokinTex! These people are downtown, get back, Jack, just go right straight ahead on, now! Love these people!"
