My 1st ham a hit.. (pron heavy)
 
After seeing Phrasty's thread on ham a while back I decided to make ham for Thanksgiving and my first ever try at curing meat.

2 boneless boston butts fresh out of the curing brine

Soaked them in fresh water for about four hours and they're drying and chilling out in my kegerator/fridge before smoking. Only thing other than beer that is allowed to go into this unit is meat. :mrgreen:

That ham looks awesome. Any change for the recipe for the brine? I might have to try this for myself

Thanks! I got the Vision Pro kamado from Home Depot and I absolutely love it. It puts out some of the best food Ive had. Very versatile and best bang for the buck compared to the big name brands. They def didnt sacrafice quality plus customer service is top notch.

Thanks! The cure brine is pretty much the same with the exception of adding a few other spices I added to my taste. Try it and youll love it. Im still getting praise for the ham since thursday.
