Its just a phosphate to make it moister. Any would do but I think you could leave it out without any problem. One thing to be sure to do and I don't think the recipe details this but once you pack it in the casing its best to let it sit for a day or two in the fridge to allow the gelatin to set up really well before putting the heat to it. Otherwise it falls apart.

Wow, I just read the compliment and thanks. Having name in same sentence as uwanna61's is quite flattering after seeing his proscuitto. I'm far from good. Just don't like posting photos of my train wrecks. :oops:

Shucks, don't worry.... you ought to hear what else I've been called! :shock:
If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it probably needs more time on the grill! :D
