"What kind of salt? That's a very good question, because different
salts have different flake sizes and so have different volume
measurements. I use Diamond Crystal kosher salt. Other coarse salts
will be close, but if you're using finely ground salt, reduce the
amount used to 2 teaspoons per every five pounds. I'm sorry, that's
harder to remember."
What a bull**** answer. The majority of the country cannot obtain
Diamond kosher salt easily. Morton's is the default kosher salt and
it weighs about 5oz a cup. Diamond weighs almost 8oz a cup. That's
a huge difference in actual salt - almost twice as much Diamond as
Finely ground salt? What is that, popcorn salt?
Like I said - it's a ****ty answer that does more harm than good.
