 Ingredients List

  • 20 lb Beef **
  • 1 pt Salt, kosher
  • 1 ts Salt peter
  • 1/4 lb Brown sugar


** good fresh-killed beef (the rounds). Mix the last 3 ingredients well,
rubbing out all the lumps. Divide the mixture into 3 equal portions. Place
meat in a large bowl and rub thoroughly with one portion of the above
mixture. Let stand 1 day. Follow same procedure on second and third days.
Turn meat several times a day. Allow meat to remain in bowl for 7 more
days, then hang in a warm place until meat stops dripping. Whe dripping has
stopped, hang in a cool shed about 6 weeks to dry thoroughly. Wrap meat in
clean muslin bags and keep in cool place. If in 6 months meat becomes too
dark, soak it in cold water for 24 hours and wipe dry. Wrap again in muslin
bags and hang in cool place.
