Alright come on big boy, give us the general steps/ingredients and most of us will figure it from there. No secret recipes needed.

Thanks gtr! The ham really came out great. The black pepper wasn't harsh at all! Mellowed out nicely. Went very well with the ham flavor. I can see how you've been indulging in these for a while.

Well it's more of a cure than a brine. Curing salt is used and that's something you wouldn't use when brining poultry.

OK Sorry guys, It's been a pretty busy day. Have not been avoiding spilling the beans.

Here's a great base to start from.

For a 12-15lb ham use:
1 Gallon Water
1.5 cup Kosher Salt
2 cup Brown Sugar
1.5 oz Cure #1 (Pink salt)

That's a good base for your brine. Add whatever spices & herbs you want. Add any un-crushed spices you'd like (eg cloves, cinnamon, allspice, peppercorns, garlic, chilis) to hot water & stir to dissolve (Make sure to dissolve the pink salt first). Cover & steep for a bit then put it in the fridge and let it cool to 40˚ before adding meat. Brine for 2 lbs a day (12lb ham = 6 days) Then you remove from the brine, wash it off, dry it & smoke + glaze. There you go.

Hope this helps.
Cheers

Ok, you're starting with a raw, un-cured (green) ham, right?

Awesome thanks for the info. I'm planning on giving it a go with a picnic portion, or a boned and heavily trimmedbutt. Which do you think would be better?
