    1      large         Boneless Butt Roast
                         - Salt And Pepper
 
 Get as large a Boneless Butt as you can.  Cut the individual muscles out of
 the meat and cut off and discard all the fat and connecting tissue.  Cut the
 meat across the grain as thin as possible.  1/16 to 1/8th of an inch.  The
 thinner the slices, the easier it will be to dry.  Salt and pepper the meat
 generously on both sides, using more pepper than salt.  Lay out the meat
 strips on a cake or oven rack without overlapping them.  Set the rack in an
 insert fireplace and cook on low heat for 8 to 10 hours, turning every 3 to 4
 hours, until dried.  You can do the same with a dehydrator or oven, but it
 wont turn out as good.  After it’s done, store in a pillowcase.  Don't STORE
 it in plastic, as the meat has to be able to breath, and a paper sack will
 leave a paper taste.
