Link, get this book. Witt recomended it to me and it's great. It can be a great reference and has tons of recipes. I've been to the link the BW posted and this book,Great Sausage Recipes and Meat Curing by Rytek Kutas is even better. Skip the kits, I bought a couple of the seasoning mixes from sausagemaker and they worked good but you can do the same with the recipes in this book.

If you interested in a grinder, this is the one that I just bought and Witt uses it also. http://www.sausagemaker.com/index.asp?P ... ProdID=995
Good luck with it, it's a lot of fun. Don't forget to post pics!
