i have seen great success curing a butt into a ham. However, I've only done one at a time.

i'm about to do 5.

i understand that it's 1 day for every 2 lbs, so one 10lb butt soak for 5 days.

if i put in five 10 lb butts, do they still soak for 5 days or will they soak for longer.

using deductive reasoning, i can see the surface area is the same on each of the 5 butts as it was on the single butt, but i don't want to mess up that much meat for lack of asking.

i understand i'll need more cure, as that does matter to the amount of meat you are doing.

thanks.

Im not sure about multiple butts in the same container, but if you put one butt in a 2gallon ziplock bag it wouldnt make any difference how many bags you have.
