    You will need to inject the curing solution along the bones and in the joints to prevent bone sour. It will need to be refered for 2 weeks or longer while sitting in a curing solution... I suggest using Pops brining solution..

That's for so much useful info . I love learning from the wealth of knowledge on this site , you can't beat it . I'm moving on to the smoking phase of the big ole ham
