Default 2 Hams for Division Playoff Party 1/12/2013

Hams in the works..

2 Fresh Hams
1 Bag Tender Quick
1.75 Gallons of water
1 quart Apple Juice
3 Cups Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Dark Molasses
1/4 Cup Honey
3 Tablespoons of Pickling Spice
1 Tablespoon Peppercorns
1 Tablespoon Red Pepper Flakes
4 Cloves Fresh Garlic

Bring water to boil in stainless steel pot (sterilizes water and container), add salt and stir until dissolved, add sugar and Tender Quick and stir until dissolved, remove from heat. Add spices and apple juice, stir until completely mixed and cool to 40°.

Wash rinse 2 fresh 12 lb hams (fresh pork) with running water and add to brine. Also inject brine into the meat close to the bone. Cover and keep between 36° and 40° allow ample time for brining (aprox 10 days).

I am now in the brining stage and will post my progress...
