Last weekend our garage was turned into a butcher shop. Elmer, his brother, and cousin got together and turned the pieces of deer and antelope, that were too small for steaks, into pepperoni.
So, you start out by mixing the ground-up meat with ground bacon.
and you have to get your hands in there to mix it all up.
Then, you put all that ground stuff into a $450 Cabella's sausage stuffer which squeezes it into casings. Now see, just the word "casings" kinda makes me sick...
Then, you hang them up to "cure" overnight.
Even Joe's not so sure...
and presto! You have homemade pepperoni.
