   Pastry for double crust pie Cut chicken, beef and pork into 1 inch cubes
   and place in a large bowl. Combine with onions; cover and refrigerate for
   at least 12 hours or overnight.
   Arrange salt pork evenly in the bottom of a 3 quart casserole, preferably
   cast iron with a cover.  Layer with 1/3 of the meat mixture and 1/3 of the
   potatoes; season with 1/3 of salt, pepper and spices.  Roll out half of the
   pastry slightly thicker than for a normal pie and arrange on the potato
   layer, cutting a small hole in the centre.  Repeat with 2 more layers of
   meat and potatoes seasoned with salt, pepper and spices.  Cover with
   remaining pastry, cutting a small hole in the centre.
   Slowly add enough chicken stock through the hole until liquid appears.
   Cover dish and bake in a preheated 400 deg F oven for 45 minutes or until
   liquid simmers.  Reduce temperature to 250 deg F and continue to bake,
   covered, for 5 to 6 hours more or until top crust is a rich golden brown.
