Starting the hams

So today we started the hams down their months long process of going from raw meat to smoked hams. Here you see inmate Brian salting the last ham. We had a total of 76.6 pounds in the four hams. Ham #1 is 12.4 pounds. Ham #2 is 11 pounds. Ham #3 is the big boy at 38.6 pounds. Ham #4 is 14.6. All were coated in salt and insta-cure #2. There was 3 1/8 oz of insta cure in the mix and that was enough for two complete coatings.
