My take on weight loss target: 30% is a guideline. Go with what you like. Some fatty cuts will lose less, some ground meat products taste better at 35%+ loss.

For this breast 30% would have made it a little chewy.

One good method in my opinion is to plot the weight loss. When you see the graph changing the slope drastically you can pull it.

Sorry if this is a silly question, but where do you hang these for the 2 months drying time?  fridge?

Not a silly question at all. I dry meats in the cold room (cellar). Has low humidity and temps in the winter: not ideal for long term drying but I get decent results.

Thanks AtomicSmoke, I wish I had a cellar.  I have an unheated garage that could work during the winter, however I know it gets below freezing in there on occasion.

Truly a classic work of art!

Beautiful! According to Hank Shaw over @, Goose pastrami is traditional:


 Although here’s an interesting tidbit from Wikipedia: “Among Jewish Romanians, goose breasts were commonly made into pastrami because they were inexpensive.”

So there ya go. This is traditional!


I would imagine both ducks and geese were used to make prosciutto as well....



Points for such a nice looking product!
