I have tried it with and without.
the without was smokey flavored but lacked the deep flavor of good ham.'

I wound up using the not brined for seasoning meat, like in beans or collards.

Yes, you do need to. Without it all your going to have is smoked pork and no ham flavour at all.

Cheers,

Yes Steff it can. We butcher our own pigs for much of the time but don't do our own bacon and ham so the hams often go into the freezer before going to the butcher to be turned into ham. She wants them thawed and I refreeze when it comes back.

Cheers,
Ronnie
