I have a buddy who used to be a butcher. About 2 1/2 hours, a case of beer, and some really good freezer bags!

A good set of knives and couple of hours. bone it out and do it yourself and save yourself the money. When you sit down at the table it makes the meal that much more special to know that you took it from the pasture to the table all by yourself.

I don't use the ziplock bags, I get a couple of rolls of freezer paper and tape at the local wally world -- double wrap everything to prevent freezer burn and it works out great.

Enjoy.

only cost me $55.00 a deer when i take it to my processor. this is why i don't process my own, to me my time (3 or so hours) is more valuable than $55.00

People does not realize how labor intensive it is to make jerky and sasage. I heave people asking me to make them up a pound. for me to debone, and sort thru a hind quarter, and slice into 1/4" slices, and cure overnight, and dry takes hours.

Just to skin, quarter, debone, slice into steak, grind, package and put in a freezer takes me over 5 hours. So before jumping into the processing game, realize it takes some time.
