    I have a basic idea of how to use salt to preserve meat, but wondered if anyone had a good set of detailed instructions, or experience doing this?

    I have a home butchering and meat preservation book(circa 1986), but it only goes into curing hams(using a dry salt or brine), no other meats mentioned. The freezing and canning sections are more in depth(as far as meat preservation goes).

    1
    Pick your meat. Whether it is Ham, Chicken, Pork, Steak, Veal, Beef, or anything else, it will work.
    Ad
    2
    Wash the meat with room temperature water, (AKA Lukewarm).
    3
    Cut off all parts of your meat that you wouldn't like to preserve
    4
    Pat dry with ONE of your clean towels.
    5
    Optional---Apply herbs and spices to your cut.
    6
    Now rub the salt, coarse, into the chosen meat. Rub it hard into the meat, and also a layer of that coarse salt over all the meat.
    7
    Now hang your finished meat into a cool room, see Things You'll Need below.
    8
    Check every 2 days for 3 weeks, making sure it doesn't smell bad, a sign of bacteria.
    9
    After 3 weeks, it is ready.
    10
    Use water to wash off salt from meat.
    11
    Pat it down with the OTHER of your clean towels.
    12
    Now you can eat it and enjoy!

    Remember to save and reuse what spices that you have for they may not be replaceable....

    I was tutoring young people yesterday evening, so I really didn't check this until I got a PM from BB this morning.
