    Yep correct, water, salt, curing salt and sugar is a very basic ham brine but other herbs and spices are added for different flavours

    Impatient bastard i am....some say brine for one day every pound others say brine for 12 days....i did it for 11 days...pulled it out of brine....dunked in hot water for 30 min to expell some salt.....i didnt have water hot enough as the flavour is a bit salty.......then whacked in smoker at 225 degrees farnieght for 6 hours......



    What would i change......the flavour....to salty and would love it sweeter.......more raw sugar and maple syrup
