Beat smooth with a wooden spoon.
  2. Simmer sliced pork fatback or possibly bacon in water for 5 min and dry between paper towels; line bottom and sides of 2-qt mold with some of the blanched fatback; reserve some for the top. Divide grnd meat mix into thirds. Put one-third in prepared mold, and cover with half of the marinated game. Top with more grnd meat, then rest of game, then remainder of grnd meat. Put the bay leaf on top and cover with rest of blanched fatback. Cover with foil. Set in pan with boiling water which comes halfway up the sides.
