Brisket Sausage - my first

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by jdwhome, Oct 12, 2009.

  1. A local BBQ joing, Longoria's of Everman Texas makes the best sausages out of brisket. Well, I finally got an electric grinder (northern industrial) and decided I'd start it off attempting a brisket sausage myself

    I cubed a 5lb untrimmed sausage, trimmed off the 'hard' fat, and placed the cubes in a bowl. I then added 1 package of cubed Pepperjack cheese, 1 can hatch mild chilies, 3 red jalepenos(crushed), Pendry's Chisholm trail steak seasoning, adobo powder, hungarian paprika, black pepper, kosher salt, mexican oregano, dried cilantro, and a little coriander.

    Nothing was measured, I just eyeballed it based upon what I liked.

    After chilling the mixture until almost frozen I ran it through on course grind, added the stuffers, and reran the meat through the course grinder again.

    The results were fantastic. The brisket was perfectly seasoned, with some mild/medium heat, and the flavor and moistness was outstanding. And I only had 1 casing blowout!

    Can't wait to do another batch and try a few different flavors and meats.

    Sorry, I only have the 1 pic...once I got them off the smoker I was too busy eating them.

    That's a fine looking sausage! Wish you'd gotten a cooked pic, but next time for sure. Your recipe sounds real good, and wish I had a grinder too!

    Longoria's brisket sausage was my inspiration to get started making sausage too. I also have the Northern Tool Grinder. Here's how I make 'em. Hope it gives you some ideas, tho, you already made a great looking batch. Keep up the good work!

  11. looks great
  12. In fact I visited and went through your entire site prior to my attempt. It was extremely helpful. Thanks.
