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.
Thanks!!

Awesome post, I love your ham posts. I typically find ham too salty for my tastes, can I use your recipe and down the amount of salt, or would I get into a spoilage issue.

They really are great. I smoke them at 275, glaze them at 130 and take them off at 155.

Try the recipe as is. I too don't like a salty ham and I've adjusted this to be a bit more sweet than salty ham. You can taste the brine before you cure the ham to get a feel of the sweet/salt balance.

Do it! If you want to try something a bit different do a search for my black peppered hams. Very nice stuff!

So extremely valuable. I have been rolling around the end product in my head but didn't know how to get there. This has got to be incredible. I know where for a few cents more per pound I can get cases of deboned butts.
