    Hey Guys
    Got this Biltong Drying Machine for sale. Purchased for R699 a year ago. Current new price is R599. I am selling this for R300. In good condition and works like a charm.

    :lol: I feel for you Crispin....

    We lived in Houston for a few years....barely moved in when hubby decided their beloved "Jerkey" was not going to cut it!! He quickly set up a small biltong factory in the garage....it worked like a charm, even in Houston's humidity!!!! The biggest challenge was to get the proper spices....:biggrin:

    I made one out of an old plastic paint drum. Can most likely use taller salt buckets as well. Worked out nicely. Advantage of this unit as above is that you can see what is going on. And does look better than a paint bucket.

    have you trained as a blockman? i was wondering if you know what a propper sir loin of beef is and the 'horses neck' ?

    we are a few weeks out from the main hunting season and we have just slaughtered the first lambs of the season, as I like good quality meat and dont like stressed animals i choose the best lambs of the seaons for myself and slaughter at home right after they come out of grazing in the forest.

    4 near perfect lambs hanging in the cooler for the next 5 days before i'll butcher them into the cuts I want. Its good being a farmer.

    but i need to get onto a good biltong and worse routine, especially if we hunt some deer and elk this year.

    i see u selectivley quote, which is fine, but you have ignored the point that I produce most of my meat myself, on Organically certified and reared lamb and I go that extra step of doing the slaughtering myself, predominatley due to the ethics involved with how animals and live stock are kept. I practice what I preach and try ensure to the best of my ability that the animals we rear and kept against an accountable set of standards.

    Yes I have trained as a blockman amoungs other things (IT, risk management, basic microbiology, Haccp and ISO Standards).
    The wors or sausage making should for part of your normal routine as its Primarily made from the offcuts.

    Those lambs Must be treated pretty good, i have audited some of our suppliers, i have see good and i bad!
