This recipe from Rumpolt that describe smoking 
meat to be kept.  (Several others describe 
smoking meat that is then cooked/ served 

Ochsen 11. Smoked stuffed tongue. Take a raw 
Tongue and cut the meat out from the Skin/ slice 
meat of the ox/ that is not fat/ also Pig meat 
that is well softened (cooked to jelly?)/ one so 
much as the other nicely small/ and that no water 
comes in/ grind salt in a mortar/ and beat a 
little pepper/ and take twice so much salt as 
pepper/ and rub it with the hands/ before you it 
stuff/ put it then into the tongues/ and tie it 
tightly/ dont hang it in the chimney/ but in 
smoke where no heat comes/ let it hang in there a 
week or four/ like this the inside is nicely red/ 
and keep it for a year or two/ put not make in 
summer but instead in the winter when it is cold. 
And when you wish to eat it/ then let boil an 
hour or two/ pull out/ and let become cold/ and 
when you it wish to slice it/ then pull the skin 
off/ as then you will see if you filled it firmly 
or not. If you it filled that it so that it is 
firm so let it be sliced/ if it is not hard/ then 
give it whole on a table/ like this it is a good
