Sam Slager

Sam works in the Cattle District, west of The Shades, in Ankh-Morpork. He is the owner of the sausage shop found on the north end of Long Hogmeat Street.

Sam Slager looks like the archetypal butcher.  He is large, almost to the point of
rotundness, but not quite, and able to break into a sweat even on a chilly day.  Though quite
muscular due to years of working with large animal carcasses, Sam has plenty of brains yet his
temperament can get away with him on occasion.

Sam offers a variety of sausage-making jobs, resulting in both money and experience. To see what is available, "read" the order board, then "apply for <order>" to start the job. At that point, a time limit is provided, along with a slip of paper to provide a reminder of how many sausages and what type. Also provided is an icebox to keep the meat fresh as it is acquired. When the sausages are complete, be sure to "give" the product to Sam (do not "sell").

Any type of animal present on the Disc could be requested for sausage, from the mundane (cat/dog) to exotic (tiger/panda/shark). Once experience is gained making regular sausages, one can apply to make flavoured (spiced) variations.

Skills needed

You can do some of the easier jobs with ~100 bonus in crafts.culinary.butchering, perhaps even a bit less if you're willing to put up with lots of failures. The smaller the bit that you're trying to debone on the table, the higher your chance of success, so if you're starting out with a relatively low bonus, stick to deboning things like eyes, fingers, etc at first. Definitely don't try to debone entire corpses.

So long as you stick to unflavoured sausages, butchering is all you need. However, if you get into flavoured sausages, crafts.culinary.cooking is also checked when mixing the flavour in with the raw meat. A bonus of 200 is about the lowest you could probably succeed with; at a bonus of 197 there were no successes at all; with a bonus of 220 successes became occasional.

The Process

Once in the backroom, the relevant commands are as follows (note that bits such as eyes, feet, etc. can replace the entire corpse if you're not confident in your crafts.culinary.butchering bonus):

Put <corpse> on workbench
Debone <corpse> on workbench (crafts.culinary.butchering check)
Grind <wads> in grinder 
If using spices: Mix <wad> with <spice> in mixing bowl (crafts.culinary.cooking check)
Extrude <meats> from extruder

Butchering larger objects (e.g. entire corpses) seems to require a higher cr.cu.bu bonus. You can get around this by cutting bits and pieces from a corpse (with "get <bit> from corpse, such as 'get heart from corpse', 'get spleen from corpse', etc.) and deboning those on the workbench instead. You'll need to be holding a knife or a dagger to get body parts from a corpse.

Experience and Money

The following corresponds to experience and money:

Cool-down

There is a cool-down time - if you apply to fill orders too quickly, you will receive less experience and money for those orders. The cooldown for diminishing returns is separate between regular and flavoured sausages and lasts 1 hour.

Extra Money

Note that Sam will buy any and all player-made sausages. Therefore, if there are any sausages left over from the sausage-making job, this is a way to make a few extra dollars.

  • Note: Items marked 'Double check' are listed in the research tab but have not been otherwise confirmed as matching what is listed on the board. I have seen several discrepancies on the prices listed in the research with the board listings. I don't know if there were changes after the researchers did their tests but I have not noticed the board changing prices. It seems completely consistent. The items marked with '?', I have not seen on the board but assume they will show up. I am still checking the shop regularly to fill in the missing listings.
