Brine for smoked ham

The youtube video says you can smoke the ham after 24 hours. The recipe says 5-7 days. Which is true!?
@jycangelica Sorry for the confusion…
Both may be actually correct.
If you are injecting, we recommend holding overnight (12-24 hours is fine) in a 50% diluted solution of the brine, and then smoking the after that.
If you are only brining and not injecting, then you should hold for 5-7 days, then smoke it.
You can read the full instructions in our recipe here:
When you get to the “process” section, follow either the “Injection” instructions or the “Brining” instructions, but not both.
@Parksider If that isn’t already in your possession I’m disappointed!!! That’s the smoker equivalent of a Hobart mixer!!!
@Joe-Hell This is what I’m talking about…someone needs to talk me down off the ledge or I’m going to get this TOMORROW!!! Give me just ONE good, and it better be good, reason why I shouldn’t go get this??? Thought so…crickets…
@Joe-Hell My brother is building a BBQ trailer rig as we speak 500 gallon propane tank set up and I may have told him I’d give it to him and it was easy to sell my wife on “this one isn’t for me” speech…I’m may be regretting offering it up. Seems like it would be the perfect sausage stuffing/linking table.
