wow, I've been doing it all wrong. I've got a large (5x5) hot pile that I add bones, meat, grease and anything else vaguely organic to. (including the dumping from my catbox..I use a peat box, and it works great) Old spoilt grease, broken bones, post stock leavings, whatever. If it's meat-like or one of the 'not recommended' ingredients, I just dig a hole in the center of the pile and bury it. My pile doesn't get turned, and it rots just fine.
I have dogs and cats in my neighborhood, and none of them would even think about digging in steam releasing compost for treats.
If you're itnrested in a good treatment of composting in general, including dispelling some of the longstanding and well ingrained myths, go to www.jenkinspublishing.com
and pick up 'the humanure handbook' (I believe there's still a free pdf of an older copy offered somewhere on the site.
It tells how to build a pile/bin that you don't have to worry about turning or poking holes in. I know I'm likely to get some disagreements over this, so I'm gonna tell you, don't take my word on it, but do your own research.
but I have been composting this way for nearly 10 years, and had the college test it for the first 5 years. nothing harmful survives, no rats, no critters digging in it. (shrugs)
