Pork Loin Ham - second round

Discussion in 'Pork' started by timbrunson, Dec 27, 2013.

  1. Hi everyone, just wanted to show the finished pictures of my second try at pork loin ham. It really turned out nice and tasty. I'm trying to figure out how to get more flavor into the ham though. I used pops brine and then rubbed it with spicy mustard and head country rub. Not salty at all but I'd like to get it a bit "sweeter' like the honey baked ham I've eaten in the past. Any thoughts or advice??  Thanks for looking. Tim B.

    Injecting and letting sit over night might help.

    Like Woodsmoker said.


    Injection makes a difference but the true color doesn't show until after cooking. And they freeze so well. I use more sugar than salt in my cure, AND I add a little maple extract as per a suggestion from Pops. Your nose sometimes fools your mouth.

    Great presentation as well on a platter for a party.

    But those are some nice looking loins you have there yourself, bet you made a lot of people happy!
