Know Your Sausage: Landjäger

Named for the “mounted hunters” in the forests of Germany, most likely for their portable nature, these dried strips of pork, beef and lard are the badass daddies of modern Beef Jerky. After the meat and spices are packed into a casing, they’re left in a sweat box for 24 hours to ferment. Then they’re smoked for at least a day, usually two. When they come out, they’re delightfully chewy, and their taste resembles that of salami. Quite simply, it’s a gourmet Slim Jim.

According to wikipedia, it’s a popular snack to eat during “treeplanting.” How big are the trees being planted that one needs to snack whilst doing it?
