The chorizo is already dry enough that the flies are no longer interested. I thought I'd have to rig something up to keep them off, but if all I have to worry about is cleaning the eggs off for the first 2 or 3 days, there's no need to bother. And as it turns out, none of the flies did lay eggs this time.

I found out from Mac at SausageMaker.com that in order to keep links from untwisting you need to use twine between each link. That's the "obvious" answer anyway, but I thought there was some trick sausagemakers used to make a foolproof twist. Nope. Sometimes the obvious answer is the right one.
