    Is there a cups to 1.29 pounds for the turkey cure (0491149-5-V) & a conversion chart of cups to 1 pound for Country Brown Sugar Cure?


  • Walton's Employee

    @calldoctoday Are you asking for how many cups 1.29 lb of the cures would be? I could try to check this week on it. When do you need it by?


  • Regular Contributors

    @jonathon Jonathon, I think either you or Austin already answered this for me last week, although by then I had already started the brine & cure with my own calculations which were just slightly off from yours. I smoked the Turkey & the Ham & all the sweet potatoes, stuffing, mashed potatoes, & butter too. Then transported it all & it all got ate up. I thought the Turkey turned out like dying & going to heaven. The Ham was not too bad, but I still got a pretty good pork taste. It was a really big Ham though & probably came off a really big Hog. All the sides were great too & everyone ate them all up. I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving Holiday. We delivered, ate once, & had to get back home, but everyone ate everything up.

    @jonathon Jonathon, PS: I saved your calculations since mine were off just slightly & not surprisingly, so next time I will use yours head on.

    @jonathon Jonathon, Thank you! Can you tell me exactly what the California Seasoning does for the ham, as noted in your ham curing suggestions? What sort of flavor does it have? Would that help when working with a particularly large ham to enhance the flavor & perhaps eliminate some of the “porkiness”? I may want to try that in the future. I am wide open to any ideas, thoughts, tips, or suggestions you may have. Dave

    The California Ham Spice really only has one function as a flavor enhancer so you don’t need to do anything different than what you have been doing other than add some of this! I have used it on every ham I have ever done and I have always been very pleased with the results. I’d say the first thing you should try is the California Ham Spice and I’d bet you are going to be happy with it!

    Oh… I ground the pork fat and the venison at the same time. 2 chunks of venison, 1 chunk of pork, back and forth…

    Yes… sure cure and sure gel binder. The venison and pork fat were both still partially frozen when I ground them. First through the large course plate, then again through the small plate. (Not sure of sizes, but these are the plates i normally use for summer sausage). I probably should have put the meat back in the freezer before seasoning but i was pressed for time. I mixed by hand for 14 or 15 minutes. I also think I might have added to much water. The video said 2 quarts for wild game 2 pints for fatty pork. I put in 1 quart and about another cup. I mixed until it got tacky and then mixed some more. The meat seemed soupy to me but the video said that would be ok.
    The shriveling occurred before I bumped the temp up. I was using a digital thermometer with a probe, when the temp stalled for a couple hours, I suspected the temp might be reading inaccurately so I opened the door to confirm with a dial thermometer. The digital was accurate but the sausage was already shriveling.
    Another thing that bothered me was the casings… these had perforations for some reason. I e never used perforated casings before and seemed like I was losing a pot of moisture through them. Did I have the wrong casings? The other fibrous casings in the catalog said you were supposed to poke them anyway.
