Does anyone in the area do this? I'm in Saratoga but delivering in Troy.
I'm not in your area, but I just wanted to give you the vote of confidence that you can TOTALLY do it yourself! I didn't think that I "had it in me" either, but it really was pretty simple and hardly disgusting. If you can prepare meat, you can do this!
If you want some tips, feel free to PM me!
