You are right. Measuring salt using teaspoons, tablespoons, cups, etc. is convenient but is dangerous, especially when it comes to making charcuterie or dry sausage. One tablespoon of Morton’s Kosher salt weights 14-15 gr. vs Diamond Crystal Kosher salt that weighs about 7-8 gr. due to larger crystal structure. Here is an old article in the New York Times that describes these differences: http://dinersjournal.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/04/28/warning-measure-your-salt/?_r=0
Unlike in most cooking recipes salt is a functional ingredient in charcuterie and dry sausage making, it ensures product safety and shelf stability, it is best to use a good kitchen scale, like the ones available on this site to measure salt to ensure good taste and safety.
