I found 501,000 recipes on Google from as simple as.

3 cups salt
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt peter (so you can't get salt peter easily most places anymore, so use cure #1)

I'll leave it to someone else to run the math on the conversion, got other things on my mind.

Google Sugar Ham Recipe

Is what you're calling "Sugar Cured" heat treated at all, or is it a country ham that see's zero heat?

If it gets no heat treatment (Smoking, boiling, baking) then cure #2 would be your go-to cure.

I was planning to cure it then smoke it. Mortons has a "sugar cure" that they say can be substituted for tender quick. So now its just a matter of finding a recipe that calls for tender quick.

I would assume a nice glaze of brown sugar and maple syrup would be good.

If I could copy crecker barrels sugar cured ham id be happy. That stuff is great!

Any other suggestions??

for a ham, measure 1 TBS of tender-Quick per each pound if you plan a dry cure.

Otherwise, I would suggest brining and pumping cure into the ham to reach the innermost depths to avoid spoilage and funkage.

There is a mortons home curing booklet available, I bet you may find something at your local library too.

BTW, TQ has both Nitrates & Nitrites, but they do not recommend using it like cure #2. Probably a liability issue.
