Weighing vs. measuring - Page 2

post #21 of 25

I like dials. I like ease of calibration. I *always* weigh my cure and the meats I am curing. Seasonings and other non-lethal things get the regular old measing sups and spoons (or pinches and shakes if I'm lazy)

 

I REALLY like bowls I can wash & sterilize.

 

I have the big scale for Big Stuff

And the little scale for little stuff:

I just put 6 pieces of Deer Hind Quarter into cure at 3 PM. The packs took 7/16 oz, 9/16 oz, 1/2 oz, etc, etc. The digital makes it so easy.

 

Mine reads in 1/8oz increments, so if I need 9/16 oz, I put 1/2 oz on the plate. Then I put what it needs to get it to 5/8 oz on a little pile separate from the 1/2 oz. Then I take half of the little pile away.  LOL--icon_rolleyes.gif

Good golly miss molly!

 

People have been using cups and tablespoons for years, and it worked for grandma who probably just used her hand to measure.

 

When baking, you might want to use weights, but, then certainly use grams vs oz for accuracy.

 

Good lord, most of what we do is just cooking.  LOL

I'll let that go, because of your Ninja Skills, but don't push it!

Howdy Venture,

Good point, but I think I cure and smoke a lot more than I just smoke.

I think getting my cure amount to the nearest 1/16th ounce is close enough.

 

Most of the stuff I just smoke, I don't use anything to measure it.
