Some Things I Do When I'm Not Posting on CF Numerous Times Daily


Hobby Time.

First things First. Find yourself some green hams and clean them up good. I like 25 pounders, during the cure they will shed about 25% of their weight.



Then you build a suitable box, maple and oak work best but poplar will do. This one is on its 7th year and holds 150 pounds of hams pretty good.




Then you rub them down good with the secret sauce, place in the box, and cover with more curing stuff.








Then, just Shut the box up and wait...

Have you weighted them before and after, or maybe you aren't doing it correctly...

Since dry curing draws out moisture, it reduces ham weight by at least 18% - usually 20 to 25%

Pretty much

THE BEST HAM AROUND UNLESS YA KNOW THE SUGAR CUREING METHOD.. LOSEING 25% WEIGHT IS FROM THE SALT PULLING THE WATER AND MOISTURE OUT OF THE MEAT...

Yeah, so anyway I got lots of hobbies. I would highly recommend them.






























As you were



That's actually pretty cool and, you can set hams aside to eat throughout the year, use as gifts, etc.. I'd say fishing is my hobby but haven't done any the past year but, hoping to improve upon that in 2021. I do dabble in woodturning and stained glass and the occasional woodworking project as well as a lot of DIY stuff around the house.

Keep smoking em!

Looking past the sarcasm, One of the best posts in a bit imo. Used to post up a few daily pics of things I do, but most seem to see it as a Brag, so I quit. Now you need to build a smoke house. Basement and Walleye? You aint living in the low country. I've heard some of our Up state lakes have Walleye? If that is what it is. The best eating fresh water fish In America. Used to know a little restaurant that had them every Friday night. All you could eat plus fries.. $10.99.

This sight has really changed over the years. It now seems that when you post at a steady pace, others bash you for it. Wonder how much those people face book? Any way, keep the pics coming!
EF, you heard from StressRelief lately? I'd like to have a chest made.
