As a trained master butcher, I must first give you high praise. The ham book is really for beginners / laymen and also advanced described clearly and extensively. Also how you got into the different techniques deserves great respect. "Hats off" to the effort. Is worth the money for enthusiastic hobby sausage makers. I have also treated myself to get after the 20-year professional abstinence again new inspiration
