weight and volume are totally defferent. The weight of the volume of the two is what makes the two kosher salts different. I guess one has more air per cup then the other. If you want to make a recipe over and over you had better use weights not volume measurements and grams is more finite then ounces. my two cents.
And like Chalee asked, without using a weight measurement you can end up with some salty or unsafe meat if you switch salts.
