Christmas gift

I got this book: for Christmas but I haven't worked up the courage to try any of the more exotic sausages. I've got about 7 pounds of pork butt in the refrigerator which will become Alton Brown's breakfast sausage once I grind it. But between the book, and Wittdog's posts, I think I see another expensive hobby looming on the horizon.

Re: Christmas gift

I have always compared sausage making to bullet reloading. It aint much fun to do it but the end results can be good. Way too much work to be considered fun. Not terribly expensive hobby. If you want to make money you always can smoke it up and go sell it to the drunks down at the local beer joint. Can't get it too hot or salty for them folks. Course then the yankees all start screaming for Brats and you bees in bizness. Them poor folks aint neva had a real Brat. They was raised on Johnsonvilles.

Re: Christmas gift

2 Buddy's of mine have the book and last summer we tried some sausages, all pork, some with spices, some with extra cheese inside, all natural casings.

Can't say I disliked one...

Re: Christmas gift

So now I have 7 pounds of breakfast sausage, and 7 pounds of Italian sausage (in bulk). But I want to try something that's stuffed into casings. I guess it's time to start watching Craig's List for a stuffer.

Re: Christmas gift

Larry, here is the stuffer I have. It's the cheapest I've seen out there. http://www.grizzly.com/products/5-lb-Ve ... r-SS/H6252

The book you have has great recipes in it. My father and myself are making some soppressata later this morning. We ground the meat yesterday and will be mixing and stuffing this morning. As a matter of fact, I better get going.
