Thank you. It tastes pretty good too. I gave some to a neighbor to get his opinion on it. He has been smoking his own country ham for a number of years and prefers country ham. He came over a few days later and said, “Well, your ham is good, but I hate to tell you this but it tastes like you bought it at a store.” To him, that was a bad thing. To me, that was a good thing.
Jonathon I’d agree…the cure just didn’t penetrate far enough. So long as you followed basic safety guidelines I’d think it’s probably fine to consume now or freeze for later but it may not be something you want to take selfie’s with.
craigw9292 Since we are still working off of the same usage ratios I would say for each 10 lb of meat you should use 13 oz of water, 0.175 lb (.28 oz) of the country brown sugar, .078 oz of California ham spice and .8 oz of cold phosphate. Again this is for a 10 lb batch so just make sure you correctly adjust for how much meat you are doing. Let us know if you need anything else.
donalddfd Yeah, the easiest thing to do is to save the leftover injection and then weigh what is left over, then add that weight in freshwater and you will have your 505 strength solution. Much less waste this way!
