Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Home Curing Ham

I have a 12.2 lb bone in ham shank that I need to cure. I am planning to go with Charcuteries basic dry cure and use 2 oz per 5 lbs. Few questions. First, it seems like a very little amount of cure for this huge hunk of pork. Should I try the salt box dredge instead? Second, I can't seem to find anything in the book to tell me a guideline for curing time. Anyone have any suggestions? Third, the piece of meat is so large I can't find bags or food safe containers to store it in fridge. I welcome any advice
