Just read the part of salt curing a deer hindquarter for 6 months . Wow! Put that on the bucket list.


As I drove by Canale's Grocery on the way to Morris, I started wondering how to make a venison country ham. I betcha it could be done somehow.


There will be one in the works as soon as I have some more pork lard. The process is simple, just need a cool, dry place to hang it for 6 months. BuckWild's cellar will suffice.

If he'll offer the space, I'd like to do one as well.....

Thanks for posting this. My wife loves the book and I just ordered the fermentation pot. Between my recent experience with curing meat and a fermentation pot, we'll be able to ditch the refrigerator \:\)

Poser where are you curing your meat? Refrigerator? Basement? I have been wanting to give it a try for a while now. The main thing that concerns me is humidity control.

Right now, I am experimenting with BuckWild's basement. You can see pics here: http://www.tndeer.com/tndeertalk/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=3313215&page=1#Post3313215

It stays reasonably cool, dry and has good airflow. I have dry cured sausages hanging right now and will add a Bresaola this Sunday once its finished the initial curing stage in my fridge. If that works without any fuzzy green mold, I'm going to try a whole deer leg.

It failed miserably?

I wondered about that. The house I lived in on E. Parkway had a basement rat issue for a while.

Uh Oh!

You can make a fermentation chamber pretty cheep and easily(if I can do it anyone can) Watch Craigslist and pick up an old refrigerator or freezer and hook up a dual stage temperature controller like this:

http://www.tndeer.com/tndeertalk/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=3214588&page=1&gonew=1#UNREAD

If you want to come out to Bartlett I can probably make some space in my chamber for ya.(yea that sounds weird)

-been considering making a curing chamber. It's just that I already have 2 fridges and chest freezer with no garage. Not sure the Mrs. Would go for another fridge in the house because, if I do one, I want a full sized one. Hmm
