Hey guys, I'm totally new to sausage making of any kind. I cook plenty of them and in doing so, EAT plenty of them, but I've never tried making my own. To start out, I wanted to mix up a batch of loose breakfast sausage and work my way up to links, then more complicated sausages like brats and stuff. So, my question: If I'm just making loose pork sausage, or maybe patties, there's no smoking or cooking/curing involved in making this correct? Just mix up the meat with the spices, package it and refrigerate/freeze it? Since I don't own a grinder or a sausage stuffer, this might be my best bet to start out. I plan on using ground pork for the first batch and working my way up to more complicated methods. If you have any advice, I'd sure appreciate it! I did go through about 10 pages of postings in this forum before I asked my question.
