First welcome yins to the forum….here is what I use….
I use the same brine that I use for the Canadian Bacon recipe found here http://www.bbq-4-u.com/viewtopic.php?t=4540. Make sure you inject the ham and then brine it for a week….When you take it out of the brine scrub the outside of the ham to remove any residual salt.. We use a dedicated scrub brush for this. Here is how my xmass ham came out http://www.bbq-4-u.com/viewtopic.php?t=6970. Hope this helps…My mom who doesn’t use salt at all doesn’t think that this ham is salty…..

That ham looks great and the recipe (in my paranoia) sounds reasonable. The one I did before called for 5 gal of water with 3/4 bag of Instacure and 5# of salt and 4# of brown sugar; simmering on the stove I could not dissolve all that salt in the water. See why it was salty? I must have put the better part of a half gallon of honey in it and you couldn't even tell for all the salt in the ham.

I'll try this one before I need one to see how it comes out.

Thanks again
5# if Salt That other recipe didn't come from the Morton Salt company did it?
