You can get fresh hams easily. Just ask your butcher for the back leg, regular grocers will more than likely carry them as well.
As for your other question I'm totally lost!!
lol If there are funds to recover I'd have to bust a couple more hams to find out! lol
The trick to brining is to find the balance in the brine with the sweet and salt. If your brine tasted way too salty the ham will come out too salty (learned that the hard way).
