Not sure, but think I got this idea from someone on the board. Mixed up 2 cups maple syrup with some Morton's tender quick and quart of water. put pork loin in 2 gallon ziplock and poured mixture over it. Put in 'fridge for 5 days, turning every day. Removed, rinsed, soaked and rinsed again then allowed to air dry. Put on smoker with some pecon till internal of 145. Came out tasting just like ham. Sliced the rest up and froze for later breakfasts.

That seems like quite a bit to TQ. How much did the loin weigh?

That sure looks good!

My family loves this glaze on ham and in a side
dish for adding extra glaze to their ham slices.

This glaze would probably be good on any pork.

Pineapple - Brown Sugar Glaze for Ham

2 cups brown sugar
1 (20-oz) can crushed pineapple with juice
4 Tbs lemon juice
2 Tbs dry or prepared mustard
2 Tbs corn starch mixed with 4 Tbs cold water
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground cloves

Place all ingredients in a heavy bottom saucepan.
Mix well, heat over medium heat, stirring
occasionally.
Bring to a simmer and cook for 1 or 2 minutes
until sauce thickens.
Remove from heat.
Pour some glaze over ham near end of cooking, reserve remainder to serve from bowl at table.
