But I can't remember if the bones can be cooked!
I've looked around for the answer, watched videos, podcasts and if there's one that specifies raw I haven't found it.
The only failure reported so far has been with donkeys,
I realize that, but is it the donkey or the cooked bones or a fire that might not have been hot enough. I get that we need to experiment, I also like access as much existing knowledge as I can.
So if Sepp's recipe calls for raw or smoked bones then that's the answer. Cooked bones maybe don't quite do the job if some animals get through. That's not to say it shouldn't be made with cooked bones just that our expectations might need to be lower because we haven't followed the recipe. Perhaps it's not a failure just a different recipe.
Could a link be posted to the source of info on the raw or smoked bones? It's a source I haven't been able to find and would appreciate hearing it. Thanks.
