    Ham Question

    Curing my own ham and using the calculator on amazing ribs. Question - the cooler i am using can hold the ham and 1 gallon of water.

    The calculator comes up with 3.4 TEAspoons for a 9 lbs thats about 4 1/2 thick.

    calls for 20 ounces of salt. Do I reduce the amount of salt by 2/3 as i am only using 1 gallon of water compared to 3 gallons?

      Is that what you recommend?

        I prefer to keep the salt in pace with the meat. If I have half the meat I'll use half the salt, etc.

          I would reduce the salt. It's not super critical (the cure is) but you want the salt and water in proportion. DO make sure you have plenty of water around the ham - better to have a little too much vs a little too little.

            Cut salt back by half and will report back in 15 days
