Homemade Canadian and Peameal Bacon
I love homemade bacon in every shape and size. It rates right up there with chocolate and garlic as one of my favorite foods. :)
If you've not made your own, do give it a try. It's easier than you think! You basically marinate a piece of meat for a week instead of marinating it overnight before smoking. The hardest part of making bacon is waiting for it to cure.
For my latest post on the Char-Broil site, I posted an easy bacon cure recipe that works well for both American Canadian style bacon and Canadian Peameal bacon.
I normally cold smoke bacon in my smokehouse but this time I hot smoked the bacon on the Char-Broil 4 burner Tru-infrared propane grill, using the smoke infuser. It worked great!!

The Canadian Peameal bacon...
I really enjoyed this batch for some reason. Made everything from fried Peameal bacon on biscuits, to Canadian bacon pizza, to grilled bacon kabobs.
If you get the time, please check out my bacon post on the Char-Broil site , also hope you give the recipe a try!
Thanks for lookin'! :)
