as long as it's some place cool ,should be goodI've had mine hanging for 3 months now. Vegas is dry - so it began drying fast. No odor.
The one thing all the info I found said not to do was to put cure it in anything reactive. So Plastic, glass or wood were recommended. Many suggested not allowing the leg to sit in any fluid it drained off - better to have it drain away entirely. So I used a turkey cradle - covered with plastic wrap. All fluids flowed cleanly away. When it came time to rinse, I mostly found advice to not get it wet - water that is. Wine or vinegar and a good towel dry before final coating.
I'm not totally sure - this too is an experiment for me. As the weather heats up for the summer - I'm moving my hanging to the fridge. Can't leave it where it is now. Maybe with a small computer fan.
Any ideas or wisdom on the above?
I'd love to see how they cure them in Southern Italy
where it's hot /warm all year ,but haven't found much info , tho
