Just dressed out two tonight. Got them packed on ice until Friday. Then we will process them into Hamburger, sausage, and canned stew meat.

How do you Can Meat like you do, as its not done this way at all as far as I know.
Canned Kangaroo would keep falling off the shelf I reckon.

It's a simple and easy process, but cooking under pressure in a pressure canner is ABSOLUTELY mandatory. Normal boiling point of water will not kill botulism spores.

I had a pic I tried to post with this thread but it said it was to big.   I cant believe the computer could figure out that this buck was that big.

Iddee
have you ever canned the tallowy meat like ribs in barbecue sauce?   Cut all the meats fat and all off the ribs and can as usual but fill the quarts about 1/4 full of barbecue.   The heat will cook off and float all the tallow and when cool it will harden in the top 1 inch of the jar.  Simply scrape it out before reheating.

I think a lot of fish and deer pics are stretched too big to work.   :evil:

No, I only can the choice cuts. Prepared bar-B-cue is cooked, then portioned and frozen, plain ribs are frozen raw.

I stuffed 10 lbs of teriyake sticks last night that will head to the smoke house after work today.   Another favorite that I make is corned venison.  I usually make about 25 to 30  lbs a year.  Most is then just frozen but we also can a bunch with potatoes.    Nothing like corned venison hash with eggs on a sunday morning

   They do tend to make a mess of a good truck. Average about thirty deer counted dead along the highway near here each year..   Most tractor trailors that frequent the area have grill guards for a reason...    Last one I got I was running a bit better than 60.. was running 55 till i saw it... Deer here are what most people consider RATS in their neck of the woods.. farmers wont let you hunt their ground unless you at least attempt to kill the entire group after you shoot the biggest buck in the group...
   Met this big fella coming down a draw I was going up....



   Wife is bound and determined to get a bigger one. She wants to get plaques that say his and hers....

The stuff that gives corned meat that red color is sodium nitrite or cure.   I buy cure by the 5 pound bucket and my recipes use this.   You can buy nitrite as Morton tender quick in most grocery stores.   I don't mind giving out my recipe but one with Morton is better because it is the right amount  http://www.free-venison-recipes.com/corned-venison.html

I am in thawing out my hands.  I am processing my deer in my unheated garage and it is about 5F outside.

 Danno was it you who told me about putting rib meat in canning jars with bbq sauce and being able to just pick the all the tallow off the top when you open the can to use it?  Was that cheap kraft type sauce or did you make your own?  I am about done with this deer.  I have a buck tag to fill yet Saturday so need to clear the gambrel.  The rut is on and even an old man in a tree stand where I can drive up to the carcass might get lucky and get a good one.
