Interview with a Survivalist

This was an interview with survivalist/instructor George Smith (AKA Texas Gorge)


George: If you have bad meat and no food and are starving?

PL: Yes

George: At first I would boil the meat for 20 minutes. As the days went by I would make sure to boil the meat for at least an hour.

To boil meat, have a kettle large enough to permit the meat to be entirely covered by the water, and let the water come to a boil before the meat is placed in it. Then let it remain boiling in the kettle for 45 to 60 minutes, which will be long enough to kill the smell, and bacteria. Now rinse meat well.

The meat will taste much better if one takes plenty of time for boiling. Then let it cook on a fire, allowing twelve to fifteen minutes for each pound.

I have done this several times in extreme situations, I ate the meat and not once did I get sick using this method.

PL: What about maggots?

George: Maggots! They are also edible, but not for me, I just picked them off before boiling the meat.

What would you do if you were starving?


The poor on the borderline of starvation live purposeful lives. To be engaged in a desperate struggle for food and shelter is to be wholly free from a sense of futility.

Eric Hoffer(1902 - 1983), "The True Believer", 1951
