Although my MES30 will not arrive until mid December, I am making plans. I have been studying the process of curing a leg and the smoking seems understandable. My plan, and I hope the experts here will help me out, is to buy a pork leg early december. I plan to use TenderQuick, a 5 gallon food grade bucket an mix the water / TenderQuick at 4 :1. I will have a dedicated refrigerator to cure the leg. Give it a swish and stir every day for... How long? a week? 10 days? Then on to the MES30 Christmas eve I guess since I may also do a turkey for Christmas. Am I on the right track?
