Gearing up

Iím getting ready to pick up a case of butts tomorrow to make up a big batch of sausage. We are going to make some Smoked Polish, Fresh Polish and some Italian sausage. Iím thinking about cold smoking some the Polish and then hanging it with the pepperoni. The Broadway Market used to be filled with butchers and they would sell ďslim jimĒ sticks with a polish sausage profileÖIíll get the butts and talk it over with the mrs and the boys to see what they want to do. I need to hit the sausage maker as well to get some more casings.

No kidding Dave. I look at the stuff in the store, laugh and walk away. I do however buy a few 2 pound JD fatties with sage from time to time.

That'll make a lot of sausage! Do you plan to give some away, or are you stocking up for the summer?

Looks like it requires batteries. Called a "push stick'? I have to think about that for a moment.
