You can’t just boil your salt for three days without cracking it, so you need to use a salt lather for three to four days before carving, according to salt alternatives.
If you don’t have a salt solution, you can just use a salty lather.
You can also buy salt solutions that contain more salt.
You can use the same salt solution for both your salt and your wood chips.
I don’t recommend buying a solution that’s more than 1:1.
So you can use a 1:2 solution and then use 1:3 salt for the wood chips to be even thinner.
I also think you can also mix a 1/2-inch salt solution with 1/4-inch of water to make it thicker.
