Welll,in my opinion, it's an old devious butchers trick, soak the meat in water, sell by the pound, beats sneaking your thumb on the scale, both devious trickiery but hey, soaking meat in water to increase it's weight is legal. Tipping the scale with your thumb is not. I see hams selling around easter time with, yes, 25% of weigh is enhanced (gotta love that phrase) with water.
