Same thing here. A couple years ago my neighbor bagged a bull elk. He normally took his elk to be processed somewhere but was hard up for cash, so he asked me if I could do it. He had 2 gals that he wanted to split the meat with too. So split 4 ways.We had friends that wanted to see the process and half way through they left with the words,"Too much work".
At least when they ask for sausage they understand how much work it takes from start to finish as that night I stayed up until 4:00 am for the sausage finished smoking,drying,blooming and put into vacuum packed bags.
I said sure- but you guys need to help- pick a weekend. So we all got together on a Saturday and it was a shart show. After a few hours one gal leaves, then my neighbor who bagged the elk ‘had to go’. So tried to reschedule the day- no one could come to a consensus. In the end my wife and I did half of all cutting and 100% of the burger and sausage. And used all my pork fat.
My wife talked to one of the gals later and she said “I had no idea how much work it is and how long it takes’.
Yeah well scratch them off the list. My neighbor had the nerve to ask me if I could make him some more salami. Yeah when pigs fly.
