I am wondering if anyone has a recipe on making tripe chews for dogs. I have found some I can order.
It seems like making them would be cheaper as well as fresher.

Does anyone here have a recipe on making them. I don't have a dehydrator so it would need to be something that can be cooked in the oven.
Here are some that can be ordered.

Several other kinds of chews as well.

I always wash the trip from deer stomachs. And let them dry. They make Danny sick, but Reka loves them. they also make Reka sick if i feed them to her in larger amounts.

Are you sure you want to do that, Gwen? Tripe doesn't exactly smell nice, and using an oven to dry them out probably will involve baking them at a really low temperature for a really long time. I can't imagine being in the same house as cooking tripe. EWWW!

It's a main ingredient in many mexican soups. I have not ever smelled it cooking or handled it but I have tasted authentic tripe soup.

I admit I didn't eat any of the tripe. Just the veggies that were cooked with the tripe. That soup sure didn't smell.

You are probably right about EEw.

It sure seems as though I need to locate a deer hunter around.

Too many parts that go to waste that my dogs would probably love.

Wonder about putting them in a smoker for a long period of time outside?

Gwen I guess the difference is stomach tripe as fed to the dogs has little, I'm not sure what to call it, but it's a velvet lining. It's green and holds food particles and moves them along in the digestive tract. Interesting stuff.
For human consumption, the tripe is bleached, sanitized, and the little fingers removed.
What is normally fed in raw diets is the REAL thing, with the thoughts that those digestive enzymes and bacteria present are good for the dog. BIG difference between green tripe (and it IS green) and tripe cleaned up for human soups.

Indeed. Though I was mainly just talking about making my own alternatives to rawhide chews. I was actually planning on using bleached tripe. I know there aren't nearly the benefits in bleached but I am sure much better then rawhides bought from the store.

If you are doing bleached white tripe, I don't see it being particularly stinky or offensive. I would definitely NOT do green tripe. Unless you want coyotes and raccoons in your yard.
