Hey that looks good Don! That sugna looks like the snow on the mountains I see from my back window. But the ham looks so lonely in tha chamber!? Is flying that drone keeping you from making anything else?

I still make lots of jerky and do a pulled pork butt when ever I get a craving but sausage making has come to a stand still. Freezer is full and lots of salumi left. Still plenty of copa so with the high cost of meat why make anything more I don't really need.

LOL well it's not a drone, drones kill people :) Proper term is UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) Mine just happens to have a camera on it. :mrgreen:

Who do you think is going to win? Green or white mold :mrgreen: Green is natural mold and the white is left overs from salumi making.

I'd say it will be a tie in the long run but on the short one will get ahead then fall back and let the other have a run for it. If it bothers you, wipe it down then lay some cold smoke on it for a few days. Or stick it in your attic this summer. Hotter the summer the nuttier the ham is what they say in Virginia.

Just cleaned this one up tonight. Two years hanging I thought it was time :mrgreen:

Going to be hitting the Hobart tomorrow for some thin slices. Has a really nice nutty smell to it, best I can explain anyways. The white fat is soft & creamy.

Looks superb Don! I'm surprised you waited 2 years with this one, especially since it was a smaller one. Tell us whether it was worth it? I have one that's coming to a year and was thinking of pulling it soon, but maybe I'll wait.

Could you use a culatello cut maybe use lard layer to slow drying and do summer sweat technique for a smaller country ham style pork or even a shoulder? I understand technically would not be ham if I used shoulder but is there any reason from safety standpoint to not use shoulder?

Well, I don't think you're going to get many answers after a couple years, but thanks for digging up the thread, it really gives me ideas!
