    S13,
    I started a 1.5 and a 2.5 lb loin roast in the brine tonight. I decided to wait to see just how well this batch turns out with this recipe before I go through the recipe and procedure and take pics. If i go to the trouble and the stuff tastes bad I don't want to waste the time and effort. This is my first time making the ham. I did bacon 3 years ago and it was ok, but not near as good as storebought. (I couldn't find pork belly and used part of a fatty Boston. Not the same. What I ended up with is bacon flavored slabs of pork roast/pork steak.) This ham does not have the maple syrup for the maple flavor, just plain salt, Prague cure salt and sugar and spices. If it turns out I will post the whole process and the result.
