    I can't seem to find an answer on this.  How long does a shank need to brine for?

    A. What kind of shank?
    B. what do you plan to do with said shank?
    C. Are you curing it or just brining it?

    Ok I just noticed this was in pork. Do you want ham shanks or just smoked pork hocks?

    It is in a the brine mix that is found here... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/110799/pops6927s-wet-curing-brine

    So - I guess it is a wet cure brine... I want to brine and then smoke it. 

    I was not aware there was but one kind of shank... the "forearm" of the pig... that is what I have in the brine.  I just need to know when I should remove it.
