Hog bladder

I plan on doing a culatello in the next few months. I have some of the dried pasted hog sheets, but I have access to fresh hog bladders. I would like to try using the bladders but I cant find any info on how to prepare them. Does anyone have any experience in this?

Cheers
Toby

Thanks for the feed back Bob. I might have to pull the trigger on one soon. Do you use the blender testing method?
Cheers

I know its a bit ridiculous, some bureaucratic bs most likely. Yes my handle is after Todd, when I played floor hockey on the island I got the nickname.

Shuswap,

I have ordered the chr hansen products from the sausage maker before, they take bout 10 days to arrive. So they are not frozen anymore, but I have used them and had no issues.

Thanks Bob
Can would pure vitamin C do the same job as sodium erythorbate then? I have been dry curing sausage for a while now successfully without it, like Chris Im just after a brighter product.

Looks awesome Chris, I was looking for sodium erythorbate locally. Stuffers doesn't list it. Where did you get yours from? The sausage maker has it but with the Canadian dollar these days it starts to get pricey. I might have to try your recipe with moose.

Thanks

Thanks CW, Its a standard sized fridge, maybe 18 cft I think. I have dowels that fit inside which I use for hanging . I have 3 hygrometers and 2 units to control humidity and temp ( always need a backup). http://i1294.photobucket.com/albums/b606/tobertuzzi/20131206_110706_zps7090b4c9.jpg You can see...

Thanks, I was happy with the cure distribution internally. I thought I would have more grey patches as I didnt think I was overly surgical with my injecting.

DIY humidifier for $20

I made this a while back and thought Id share it. I got the basic idea off a nefarious gardening site....lol. It works great for me as having it on the outside of the chamber gives me more room inside. And it brings up the humidity very efficiently, faster than any humidifier I have tried. First off...
