In the film instr's for the chorizo, it states " 9 tbls " of Kosher salt? Is this correct??? I believe that 10 tsp kosher salt is about 55g. 1 tbl = 3 tsp...so you are saying that 27 tsp of salt....! (is this supposed to be 9 tsp?)


Maybe I am reading it incorrectly.....

I think it's wrong as far as the tablespoon instructions. ... just go with the standard salt to meat ratio of 3%.. In that video, they were using 5 pounds total of meat. which should be 68 grams of kosher salt. They are saying to use 63 grams of kosher salt... probably not that big of a deal! to use either 63 or 68 grams.. Also, kosher salt weighs differently by brand so if it were me I would always weigh it out on a scale using grams and not by using the tsp tbs thing.
