The Biltong Buddy
Good Day to all of you
I thought that I would give you a small insight into why I am manufacturing biltong boxes .
I am a Site agent / contracts manager by trade, that was employed with a company for 18 years . About 4 years ago I was retrenched when economic times became difficult and contracts that were awarded never transpired because of all the corruption and backhanding that has been going on recently . I have since worked for several company’s on a contract basis as no one is employing permanently because of the instability in the construction field .
With the cost of living and not having a constant monthly income to support my family I have had no choice but to find an alternate way to survive the monthly expenses when work is quiet. With this thought in mind and considering all the other family’s that are feeling the same financial strain I decided to supply not only personal biltong boxes but also boxes big enough that a person could start their own small biltong business to compensate their monthly income.
Wood working has always been a passion of mine and ethical hunting was another, so one day I decided to make my own biltong box for processing the venison that I shot.
I made my first biltong box about 9 years ago and I have never looked back . To this day I am still using my original Box even though my later editions out class my personal Box by far ..
My first thoughts when making my own biltong were quite frightening as I didn’t have a clue on what spices etc to use. I found out that the easiest and most simple way was to soak your meat in a Worstershire sauce and coarse salt mixture for a couple of hours and then hang . I still make my own biltong this way .
So, in closing, I thank you for taking the time to read my ramblings and I look forward to hearing from you so we can discuss your new venture in the biltong industry or alternatively when you order a personal Biltong Box .
The boxes are hand made out of pine ply and made to the highest quality. It is then coated in a metal free non-toxic varnish which won’t taint your meat and makes cleaning out easy
