Nothing fancy: 20 pounds of venison scraps, 20 pounds of pork shoulder, 4oz non-iodized salt, 4oz ground black pepper, 3oz dried, ground sage, 1oz chipolte pepper. All salt and spices by volume.
I expect it to take a while.
Weird stuff note
Lately, I have been experiencing the weirdest body twitches. I have been about three times more physically active since retiring than I was before retiring. I have sore, tired muscles so "when I sit, I sits loose" especially when I am in my beloved recliner.
These weird body twitches have both legs flying up like somebody put a firecracker under a ragdoll's legs.
I think I figured it out. I am shivering.
I am sitting so loosely that my body heat drops. I have been doing sit-ups as part of my physical fitness plan. Those twitches are much more powerful than I ever experienced before. So powerful that I did not recognize them.
