10 mls..... 10 milliliters.... 1 / 100 of a liter... 1 liter = 1000 cc or ml or grams if weighing water..... Learning the metric system, which takes about 1 hour, makes curing really easy...

1 ml = 1 cc = 1 gram of water... Ppm = W:W or V:V but not W:V unless it is water... If you have $1,000,000 dollars then $1 dollar would be 1 part of 1 million or 1 Ppm...

So.... If you have 1 million cups of sand then 1 cup of sand would be 1 Ppm sand.... the same if you weighed it... 1 million pounds vs 1 pound = 1 Ppm.. BUT you can't inter mix the 2 measuring techniques unless you are measuring water...

When it comes to curing,

**only the Weight measures are used**...

1 liter = 33.814 liquid ounces ... Now that is so stupid to try and use numbers like the "American" system... It would be a nightmare.... and when trying to weigh something smaller than an ounce.... what do you have.... nothing... 1/10 of an ounce.... 16 ounces in a pound and 2000 pounds in a "short" ton.... lets not even talk about "long" tons... or barrels.... 32 gallon, 42 gallon, 48 gallon, 50 gallon, 55 gallon.... they are all barrels of some sort of measure..... the BEER barrel... UK 160 liters or 43 US gallons... USA 31 US gallons or 26 Imperial gallons or 119 Liters..... Yet, a liter is a liter is a liter no matter where you go....

Get an electronic scale or 2 and your life will be so simple... one that weighs to 25 #'s (11350 grams) and one that weighs to 100 grams or so, for weighing out cure...

You can get syringes at your local feed store... farmers buy them all the time... a 10 ml syringe with a 14 gauge needle cost about $2...

So. back to the curing.... weigh up the appropriate amount of cure, salt and sugar.... dissolve it in a suitable liquid for brining... and inject it a bunch of times in an attempt to get a uniform distribution throughout the meat.... especially around the bones and joints... submerge in an appropriate brine/cure mix and refer for a couple weeks or longer.... remove, rinse, dry.... It's that easy....

once you have a basic understanding of the metric system, this will make a whole lotta sense...
