Question about bone sauce

I have trees that need bone sauce, and access to plenty of bones. I have read Sepp's instructions and watched Paul's video. Once I find two matching pots that I can dedicate to bone sauce, I'll want to try it according to the letter of Sepp's procedure.

But until such time, I have a question. Would pressure-cooking the bones work? Has anyone tried this? Does anyone have any ideas why this might work, or not work? It seems as if this might be a time-saving shortcut, but what the hell do I know? Thanks in advance.

I use a pressure cooker to cook down bones into a nutritious paste that I feed my dogs (or incorporate into homemade dog biscuits). It smells exactly like bones/meat would be expected to smell, so I doubt that would work if you are trying to use it for chasing animals away. Of course, I am a vegetarian and think it smells horrible. (I only do it for the dogs sake.) So... maybe other vegetarians like deer and rabbits would hate the smell too. Who knows? It might be worth a try anyway. Its certainly simple enough to do.

I think you would have too much water and not enough heat. That is a pretty intense fire they built over the pot. The bottom is also relatively cool, more like a distillation process than a cooking one.

Thanks. That makes sense. Pressure cooking doesn't necessarily require that much water. But I take your point about the bottom being relatively cool. I hadn't thought that part of it through.

Sepp's procedure left nothing but ash from the bones, so I suspect much higher heat is also a factor.
