Now that is a good looking piece of Venison you got there salmonclubber. I can see myself enjoying a center cut of that ham sitting alongside a couple of eggs and some hashbrowns.

hi all now that i have had a few day to try the ham it was real juicy and tender i think it should have been in the brine for another day or maybe two it taste good but i think it should have had more of the ham flavor but i dont know if soaking it for another two days would have given it more flavor or if i should have put it in a stronger brine it was the first and only ham i have done so
taste good should have been excelent the color was good as well as good looks clear through to the bone tender and moist almost juicy nice smoke flavor
over all i think it was a sucsess
happy holidays everyone

Those pictures look awesome.

Did you let it soak in the brine or did you inject the brine into the meat?
