    Curing a ham

    I followed the instructions on this site for curing a ham. Have a 9lb half ham that is 6.5 inchs tall.curing in a 5 gallon food bucket. I used 20oz of kosher salt and 37 grams of #1 with 3 gallons of water.
    I see on this recipe here that they did a 15-20 ham and cured for 7 days.
    My question is, following the curing calculator it says I should cure for 32.6 days, is this correct? I see others say cure for 1 day for every 2 lb.

    First, welcome from Maryland. I re-ran the numbers and it appears something did not calculate correctly the first time. When I changed the liquid unit from gallons to cups and then back to gallons the number of days changed to what you had. originally. Sorry about that.

        We moved out of Omaha 21 years ago. Unfortunately, we still live too close. How are you liking it in Julesburg? I grew up in Lexington and I really miss that part of Colorado and Nebraska.

        is 6.5 inches the thinnest dimension? If not, you want to use the thinnest dimension. I get 32.6 days too, btw
