    Cure Conversion Chart for 1 lb and 5 lb Meat Batches

    Have you ever bought some of Walton's Cure, but don't know how much cure and water to use to prepare your injection? Well, we have made things simpler now and you can quickly and easily measure out how much cure to use for smaller 1 lb or 5 lb batches. The best way to measure out seasonings-cures-additives is with a very accurate scale, if you do not have access to a scale that weighs in fractions of oz or in grams then you can use the volume measurements we have provided as a guideline.

  • 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?



  • @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


  • Walton's Employee

    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!

    @Jonathon in my opinion, I don’t think you want to measure cure in cups. Scale down or buy an accurate scale. Just my opinion.


  • Walton's Employee

    @Dave-R I totally agree and always recommend a scale, it is going to be a better choice every time but we wanted to offer this so anyone who was in a pinch would at least have an option to use volume.


  • Regular Contributors

    @Jonathon I agree, this is a great reference.

    @joduff cool thanx. Did you add any binders? Curious if it would affect the drying. Also what temp did you put the dehydrator at?

    I used the 16mm casings from Walton’s. The only thing that I experienced was that the collagen didn’t bond to the meat quite as well as it does for the snack sticks. I’ll have to keep working on it.
    The flavor was great and the texture was good too.
