5.0 out of 5 stars A useful tool
This book is a must for anyone wanting to learn about butchering an animal. The instructions are clear and precise and written in a way that one can easily understand. I highly recommend it

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book for a mini abattoir
The book is well written and very clear, but it is more focussed on the slaughter of the animals than the use if the meat.
If you are in the UK beware as it is an American book and the cuts, ingredients and tastes are different to ours.
It is a good book if you want to set up a slaughter house but not too good if you want to cure meat and make sausages.

This review is from: The Complete Book of Butchering, Smoking, Curing, and Sausages: How to Harvest Your Livestock & Wild Game (Flexibound)
i bought the above book for my partner. It is endorsed and sold by Fearnley Whittingstall of River Cottage and fulfilled by Amazon. We have our sheep slaughtered in an abbattoir. They are first in in the morning, he watches them 'done' to make certain all is done properly without stress. Butchering is expensive so he decided to try diy.

We were appalled to find instructions in it for smallholders to 'stick' a sheep without stunning, after either immobilising it on a table or hoisting it by the hind legs. Even if the book is legally sold, surely Amazon and Fearnley-Whittingstall should receive,at least, some public censure for endorsing and profiting from advice such as this? (Extract of letter to the Humane Slaughter Association)

I am returning the book to Amazon.

This review is from: The Complete Book of Butchering, Smoking, Curing, and Sausages: How to Harvest Your Livestock & Wild Game (Flexibound)
Superbly illustrated educational advice in butchery, smoking, curing and sausage making. Especially helpful as a first guide and a great gift for the adventurous cook.

This review is from: The Complete Book of Butchering, Smoking, Curing, and Sausages: How to Harvest Your Livestock & Wild Game (Flexibound)
An American book with lots of gory pictures giving an overview of butchery and meat curing. Not really specialist enough to use but a good start to get you in the right direction
