    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!

    Any idea of brand on the “brown” ones? I used to be able to buy them from my local butcher but he has since stopped selling them. Or where to purchase?

    @ramt600 I had the same thing happen with the reddish ones also and the brown ones worked the best so, I just stopped using the red casings.

  • Another way is with a digital gram scale. 1 ounce = 28 grams. 6 oz = 168 grams. 168 ÷ 100 = 1.68 grams per pound.

    You will need to inject the hams first. After injecting, then take any leftover brine, and put that with the hams into a tumbler. Then, tumble for 2-3 hours. Hold it overnight in a cooler, and then smoke it the next day!

    Thank you Austin, looking forward to try it with my new vacuum tumbler! As the tumbler does not allow for 24 hours of tumble ( dial cannot be set longer than one hour )what is recommended for doing a ham?

    If the usage is 6 oz per 100 lb of meat, to recalculate for another batch size, simply divide the additive weight by the meat block weight (6/100) and that equals how much to use per lb of meat (which is 0.06 oz per lb). You can then take the 0.06 oz and multiple that by however many pounds of meat you are making, so if that is 5 lb, then you end up needing 0.3 oz per 5 lb of meat.
