LEM Ham Cure Results
« on: December 29, 2019, 09:24:57 AM »
Two 20lb'ers in the books. One for another forum member,  one for my household. Pretty basic. LEM cure, 2 quart injection,  2 gallon 5 day soak in LEM brine bucket. 16 hour in the smoker with only about 3 hours of smoke. Internal temp by the bone hits 160, pull it and heavy foil wrap. Tuck into empty cooler for 6 or 8 hours. Take 'er out, get to cutting.

That looks tasty!


I might have to try that quick cure,   I do it slow over a 28 day period.

soak, injected.  In a bucket.

I use dark molasses, sugar, non-iodized salt, pink cure salt and some spices    mix it all up and inject then let it soak for a month

smoke it till it looks like yours,  3-4 hours of smoke max though as my family doesn't like strong smoke flavor.   burgundy glazed (burgundy and smoke blend well)  and put a good bark on. 


people couldn't jam it in their faces fast enough

Have you ever tried the LEM cure with a turkey?

That looks delicious.  Was that just a store bought shoulder or something? 


And if you did not make ham and beans and cornbread with that bone, you are missing out.

Outstanding! Looks awesome. Ive smoked a lot of things over the years. Never raw ham start to finish. Seeing yours I ask myself why not. Maybe this summer.
Hey! I'm not a complete idiot I have parts missing. Though sometimes I wonder.

If you want to make God laugh tell him your plans.
