    I have a few questions on your summer sausage.
    First, are your summer sausages hand rolled and not stuffed in a casing? Reason I ask is I am not familiar with using netting for summer sausage.
    Second question what is the reason for the 5 days of aging?

    I am only familiar with using cure, stuffing, smoking and then a cold water bath for summer sausage. Look forward to hearing more on your process and by the way, the summer sausage looks great !!!

    I was thinking of using string cheese, dropped in the casing when I was filling it, wanted to do it this weekend, but could not find any starting culture.

    I still have not figured out it I need it but the recipe in Rytecs book calls for it so I will order some.

    Looks Great

    ok for the cheese one is a high temp cheeder & the other is pepperjack these are kroger brand.
    the reason i age it for 5 days has nothing to to with curing it ages well and the flavors blossom. the mustard seed seems to jump out at ya more.
    i used to stuff this in casings but now i just hand roll it and mama likes the net and i can hang it in the nets if needed. also the smoke picks up better in the netting. these were smoked at 225° in plum.

    Great Idea on the netting, got to order some today supplies. it will be on the list.

    Any way to get the recipe out of ya? Been gathering recipes and all I do is get confused. Mostly about the fermento and cultures and such.

    I would really like to see the stuff that goes into yours they look great.
