Sausage n Spares

Postby SteerCrazy » Mon Aug 18, 2008 8:04 pm

Well I got the pork fat from the butcher. Goin rate $1.49/lb. :shock:

Did 3 batches of sausage, 6lbs of each. Used some new recipes that included the pork fat and let me tell ya, it's makes a world of difference rather than using just pork shoulder.

1st batch, Spicy Italian. I used Chipotle Pepper in place of Cayenne. Great heat and smoky taste This called for 3lbs Pork, 2 lbs Chuck, 1lb Pork Fat
Image

2nd Batch was Hot Links.
These had a great smoky, beefy taste. They turned out very good
This called for 4lbs Chuck, 1lb Pork, 1 lb Pork fat
Image

Here's the future sausage maker grinding sausage with 'Pepe'

Next up Brats. The plan was to make 5lbs Brat and 1lb Pineapple Brat. Well we tested the 1lb Pineapple and liked it so much we just did the whole 6lbs Pineapple Brat. Basic brat recipe and I added rum soaked crushed pineapple, brown sugar and Teryaki. Very subtle, lightly sweet sausage. Was surprised, could do some tweaking down the road
Image

Had the smoker fired up for the reeebs (see below) so I threw the sausages on there, added some more smoke and let 'er rip for about 1hour

Here's for the snacking with the sausages, couple racks of spares

At this time I was half blitzed from all the beer's that my proper rib slicing went out the window. :drunk: Tasted good nonetheless

Sure does look good - I to would like to see the recipes. I make sausage ocassionally and am always looking for a good recipe. Is that an LEM grinder? Looks a lot like mine! BTW, no problem with how you cut the ribs, I'd eat them anyway..

Yeah, we got it at Bass Pro. My small grinder crapped out and my father in law wanted the heavy duty one, he was buyin so I wasn't gonna say no. This thing grinds a whole lot faster than my smaller one so the process goes much faster.

I'll post the recipes tonight

You leave the sausage in a coil or do you pinch 'em off into bun lengths?

I agree with all that the food looks great. Looking forward to the recipes.

I leave them in coils uncovered in the fridge for a few hours then I will make links and bag 'em.
