    Howzit Mike - think of biltong as a salty chewy thing that you can use to remove some frustrations ;-)

    BTW: there are some spots in and around London where you can actually buy South African biltong ;-) (once you have gotten used to the taste)...

    I am chewing on some at the moment, it has an err....interesting flavour, it could well be quite pleasant... i think.. but, there is something about it which says " been dead a very long time"

    I'm sure i'll get used to it, there seems to be most of a large, long extinct animal in the bag.

    Crispin, i just wondered, what poor beast gave up it's life all those years ago for me to spend the last 4 hours chewing it? (and losing i might add)

    Jo thought it might be beef, but i'm leaning more towards sauropod?

    Wee- Willy Mike, the correct way is a pocket knife in hand, you sitting back on the recliner, basicly slicing thin pieces and once in a while toss one to the wife and kids:peroni:

    Depends if you got jaws like a hyena or not :p

    2-3mm is good, chunky pieces are also good, all depends on how you like it. I prefer the thin slices, chews easier and my jaw doesn't get sore :lol:
