meat curing at home the setup
Wrightfood ^ | 1/21/10 | unsure

When I first started making moldy meat in my garage over a year ago I figured that it must take very specialist equipment, and a team of well read meat science boffins to make anything resembling a decent cured product. I quite frankly am not a meat science boffin, or have very specialist equipment. Nor do the thousands of other people around the globe that cure meat at home, and make a darn fine product too I should add. It turns out it is actually exceptionally easy to make a basic reliable setup at home to cure meat in, and one that doesn’t cost a pretty penny either. In fact, with a little wheeling and dealing, I reckon the whole thing can be put together for around $100 – even less if you have an old fridge already

I’ve made probably made half a ton of venison jerky and sausage with a Little Chief smoker over the last ten years. It’s not rocket science to cure meat, but a good mix of salt, sugar, and spices does help.

Italian prosciutto is basically made by submerging a raw pork leg or butt into salt and let it cure in the salt for a period of time.

As I understand it, back in the day people used to make s*it on a shingle with dehydrated beef. Jerky, a can of mushroom soup, some toast and that’s some good SHTF eatin.
