meat

I'm a dog (honorary rottie) & need meat. So you basically have three choices. You can buy some canned meat that you don't know its quality till you open the can. Buy some FD in cans & again don't know the quality till you open the can. Or buy your meat & can it yourself.

There are other options but not for everyone. Jerky but molds quick in the southeast as soon as the humidity gets to it.

Salted & stored in a cold cellar is an option if you can have a cold cellar or root cellar.

Yet another is pickled like pickled sausage. Pickled eggs work out fine though.

Thanks from budster

Well Hawk at least you know the quality of the meat that went into your own canning. On another note I'm seeing that a lot of the better brands of FD meats are offering small shelf size cans for sale. This could allow you to actually try out their products w/o paying for a full size #10 can. Now that I think about it, why not just canned dog food? dozier

With unknown quality of meat in canned pet food & as many recalls are there are, I would avoid it. JMO

Aren't the Freeze Dried meats mostly Textured Vegetable Protein, i.e. soybeans?

In this area they smoke quite a bit of pork and preserve it that way. Lots of smoke houses going up here in the Fall. Some are dedicated to tobacco, but many are for hams etc.

I have canned deer meat and it is very good. I did them in pint jars for 1 meal. I really can't say how long they would last ,It got ate up fast.

Ask anyone that cans their own meat. Spam can easily be beat.

Homemade spam. Waste of good ham though IMO.

we can beef. We buy whole roasts (about 15 # each) I cut them into 1-2" squares, packed into wide mouth quarts add 1 teaspoon canning salt. Place into canner for 90 minutes and presto your own canned beef. Side note it took. Me 4 hours to cut up 80#'s of beef.


edit

cost us 2.99 a pound

I jump on pork shoulder when its $1.09/lb or less & have cases of it put away. Chicken leg quarters run $.69/lb so its cheap to put up. Not often I eat beef because of the price. Most beef is burger & make chili or meatloaf with it. Sometimes lasagna. Maybe a steak once a month.
