I'm planning on 8-12 hours over a few evenings.

The fridge is currently running at 39F. I have it at that temp because I read that the ham will cure slower below 38 and above 40 there is a chance of spoiling.
I don't have a vacuum sealer but I think it would work well. It might eliminate the need to flip it everyday since there wouldn't be an air pocket.
