Kangaroo prosciutto

5 garlic cloves, minced
3 bay leaves, chopped
1kg rock salt
50g whole pepper berries

METHOD
1. Wash and dry kangaroo rump with paper towels.
2. Mix garlic, 1/2 cup salt, pepper, bay leaves. Spread a thick layer of the mixture over kangaroo rump on all exposed surfaces. Refrigerate the salted kangaroo on non-porous surfaces for 24 hours.
3. Rub off remaining salt. Lightly smoke the kangaroo using a good quality oak. Liquid smoke is readily available but not ideal. 5ml will be sufficient rubbed over the kangaroo.
