    A nice reply...and probably all too true.

    The Old Black Joe Cake only shows the denominator, not the numerator and denominator fractions of the cocoa recipe's coacoa ingredient.

    (had to dig deep into the dark and benighted recesses of my math knowledge, even to recall that I wish I had the benefit from the interwebs to learn that which my teachers signally failed to beat into me)

    This is my Dad's Quick Pineapple Cake.

    1 20 oz can of Crushed Pineapple in Own Juice
    1 Box Angel Food Cake Mix

    Ideal Extras:
    Cool Whip
    Special Dark Chocolate Syrup

    Pretty straight forward. Turn the oven on to whatever the Cake mix indicates. Add the Cake Mix to either a large bowl, or the pan you are going to cook it in. Add the ENTIRE can of Crushed Pineapple, do not strain. Mix well (there should be a chemical reaction that causes the Cake Mix to foam).
    Cook until done. Serve hot.

    Any body else smoke or "country cure" meats so that they can travel without refrigeration? Living History kind of makes this a necessity for us, but it is real hard to find recipes. Least it has been for me. Anybody have any recipes or thoughts on sausages and things like that the can travel?

    One half small bottle liquid smoke.
    One regular bottle A-1
    One bottle soy (compatible to A-1)
    One bottle Worcestershire sauce. Mix in two gallon freezer baggie, and add 1/4" thick slices of meat. Marinate over night in fridge.
    Blot, then place slices in dehydrator. Remove when dry enough. (Note, the dryer the meat, the longer it will last)

    I make jerky with a smoker. Usually use a rump roast, but any lean meat is in danger of getting jerked.

    I usually cut mine into thin strips, no standard size, just whatever the meat allows. Hang them over the rack, and start a fire in the offset burn box. I usually build the fire with twigs and sticks, with some lump charcoal or charcoal left over from the last smoking. That keeps the fire going. I then shore up the fire with some fresh cut oak sapling logs, 6"-10" long. Usually chop a few down to kindling size to add randomly when the smoke isn't showing good.
    From there, just keep it under 100F to 120F if at all possible, and still smoking.

    I have tried to "tipi" smoke them before on a rack, and tried sun drying, but I couldn't keep the flies out of it.

    You can also get smoked and dried with a hanging rack near an open fire, and just down wind (light but steady breeze, is best)
    Your flies don't like the smoke and heat either.

    I cannot tell you how often i have put together all the dry ingredients in bags i hot sealed, bought inexpensive baking pans, added the ingredient bags along with recipe and given these as Christmas gifts. I usually add homemade cocoa mix so they can have some hot chocolate with their cake.

    Bump. While searching out jerky recipes, found this OLD thread (with two posts newer than 2015.) Go to post 63 for the first mention of jerky that I saw. @tacmotusn To your question, chiefie, I don't have any original recipes. This (today) my first attempt, I just followed the directions on the envelop of Eastman Outdoors hickory flavoor.

    Ground turkey yes, but turkey bacon is not acceptable. It is a scourge across three dimensions
