Curing meats on shares

Postby Hook » Sat Sep 27, 2014 9:39 am

I've been approached by a couple of people to cure out hams and stuff for them on pigs they supply. I've been tossing around how to figure out the most fair way to do that. A trial run I did was a ham off a wild pig, cured it and smoked it. They gave me a front shoulder I'm exchange.
These will be domestics, and I just need to figure it out. Should it be based off weight, one for you one for me....
What would be fair for curing and smoking?

I'm afraid I don't know if people would find a 50/50 split fair or not. I would, but the ham isn't my favorite pork either.
Personally, I'd go for the shoulders in trade. Lot's of people don't know what to do with them and it's the best tasting meat on the whole thing in my opinion, (except for bacon of course)....
Trade for the bellies if you can get 'em. Let them have the hams in my opinion.

My feeling is 50/50 isn't fair either. I'm not sure ham for shoulder is even fair.

Around here the charge is $0.40-$0.50/lb. I've slaughtered and packaged animals on halves though but that is what was offered me and I jumped on it.

Lets see, you supply the meat, cure it, smoke it and I will share it. Sounds like a real deal for me. :banana:

My thoughts only, don't bet the farm on them. KT

Some people know people, who know people, who aren't very nice people and you could get a visit from them someday. So be good people.
