Used the loin. It's Ruhlman and Polcyn recipe:
Canadian Bacon

For a 4 Lbs. loin:

1 Gallon water
1 1/2 cups kosher salt
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 oz pink salt (42 grams) also called cure No. 1
1 large bunch fresh sage
1 bunch fresh thyme
2 garlic cloves, peeled and bruised

Combine all ingredients except loin; simmer until all has been dissolved. Refrigerate until cold.

Place loin in the cure, weight it until submerged, and cured for 2 days.

Remove and rinse the loin, discarding the cure. Dry with towels. Place on a tray and refrigerate, 12 to 24 hours.

Smoke at 180 degrees F, until internal temp hits 150 degrees F, 2 to 3 hours.

Keeps in fridge for 10 days (longer if vacuum packed) and freezes well. It fries up nicely in short order at 1/8” thickness.

Ham and cheese sandwich made with non USDA stamped non salable pork and non taxed beer. I'll surely suffer the bloody scours shortly and be blind and dead by sunset but freedom tastes pretty good.

Re Slick Canadian Bacon. I do similar recipe based on Jogeephus recipe, cure 7 days, the smoke 175 til
145 internal. I like, wife loves, so win win. I call it loin bacon, cause it ain't Canadian bacon. Last batch
I did went with boneless pork butts, more fat more flavor. The butt bacon does not cook up as pretty, but taste
better.

It came from a place called blaze where 8 bucks you can get any and I do mean any toppings you want all for the same price.
