It needs another 2 for meat to fall off bone and then the bones will be used for broth before finishing the stew.

Don, I just checked out the Firebox Stove channel. I'll have to look at more but I already like it. I should have added earlier that I added a couple oberhasli goat bucklings to my llamas back in the summer.

They've grown quite a bit since the photos. Their names are MJ and Kobe. :). They are like a couple dogs. They love attention.

Meat is picked from bones except for a few that need more time. Bones are back in pot to continue making broth.

Finished stew last night in a classy plastic bowl. I did not add the milk and used potatoes instead of rice.

You can keep that cold stuff! It's 81 here this morning in Miami, but overcast and possible rain!

Here's an interesting story on the Firebox Stove founder. I like his approach and the products are great for backcountry camping.

Vension roast.jpg
Ground stuff looks great. We do venison hamburger occasionally with pork fat or bacon. Did a bacon wrapped roast in the smoker last week.

Hey Hobbes I see you grind your antelope and then freeze it. How well does it stay ? I was told that I should leave the meat in large chunks and then just grind what I need as it will last longer in the freezer . Maybe your ground doesn't last like mine lol I still have several pieces from last year in chunks that are in excellent condition in the freezer.

I've not had a problem with it. We wrap in Saran wrap then freezer paper, but burger doesn't last a year here very often. I did find some of last year's burger burried in the freezer a week or so ago that we just ate. I've left big packages for grinding also but prefer to get it over with.

I usually grind my deer and haven't had a problem I was told pronghorn is different if you grind it and leave for a long period not sure why . I know some say don't grind with pork or it will go rancid sooner maybe same for pronghorn :dontknow: It does mean more work to make a few burgers for dinner lol

It won't take us long to go through it, but this is only my second antelope.
