    I did this, and I’m still on the second cure (in cheesecloth) and if anyone’s wondering, shiny inside that brad cuts open on after the first cure feels like a hard candy. If it was semi-covered in salt. As for the taste after the first cure, salty. Will update when second cure is done.

    I would love to be able to see the "money shots" of the cross sections on the egg for a few more seconds, it seems like the moment it comes into focus you pan away or Brad moves it. This is in 1080HD.
