Drying chamber for cured meats

@kayb Are you still considering this?

I plan to get mine up and running in the not too distant future.

I'll document it, if there's interest.


I won't be curing anything fancy.

I'm past the fun phase of curing "stuff" from all over the world.

Now, it'll mostly be Appalachian stuff and other basics—simple stuff.

I have too many irons in the fire and a loss of interest in "fancy."


Still planning on it, but don't have a spot for the dorm fridge at the moment. We will be moving this spring or summer, and I'll likely buy a used fridge and set one up then. I'd like to be able to cure sausages and such.

Can anybody point me to this thread?  @DiggingDogFarm?


I didn't get it documented due to issues with depression.

Hopefully I can when I set it back up in the spring.

The chambers sit on an unheated porch — the weather is currently too cold.

I just don't want to look back and think "I could have eaten that."

Unsupervised, rebellious, radical agrarian experimenter, minimalist penny-pincher, and adventurous cook. Crotchety, cantankerous, terse curmudgeon, non-conformist, and contrarian who questions everything!

The best thing about a vegetable garden is all the meat you can hunt and trap out of it!

Got it. 


Shelby mentioned this guy in response to someone's query on ducks:  https://honest-food.net/


And he has a podcast that I'm now listening to, which featured a great episode on salami basics and another on curing whole chunks; and then I went hunting the threads on the subject, which brought me here.


Definitely no pressure on the documentation project!  But know that I'm rooting for you and everybody this winter.  Happy Solstice, peeps, and good eating.
