    I have a cousin that makes some awesome Bratwurst, and this Christmas he brought me some of the seasoning he makes for them.  I had about 15 lbs of pork shoulder in the freezer so I thawed it out and got started.  I ended up curing and smoking 5 lbs worth and keeping the other 10 or so fresh.  Turned out awesome.  Now if only I can talk him out of his recipe [​IMG]

    Mixing Seasoning before grinding. I ground thru the medium plate once.

    That does look nice!  Sometimes getting a recipe out of someone is a chore.

    Great looking sausage. Maybe you should get your cousin to join SMF. People here seem eager to share their best recipes with each other.
