I hate to tell you all but you are getting completely screwed at the grocery store. OMG is this stuff fawking awesome! Last night while waiting for the chuck roasts to get done on the UDS I decided to grind up some pork butt. After grinding it up I added the seasonings and then dumped the fresh sausage into ziplocs bag to store overnight. In hindsight, I should have stuffed it into the casings right then and there but you live and learn. We did fry up some patties before stuffing it this afternoon and all 4 came out tasting incredible. The breakfast and chorizo are spot on but the italian and bratwurst need some very minor tweaks. Both the italian and bratwurst are still better than anything I have ever bought at a store including butcher shops. So here come the pics: Bratwurst being stuffed into natural hog casings. My linking technique sucks but I vow to improve upon it. As you can see my links are various sizes. Chorizo waiting its turn to go for a ride in the stuffer. Chorizo packed into the stuffer. Bratwurst Italian (I had a blow out while linking the italian. I stuffed them a little too hard.) Chorizo I did not stuff the breakfast into casings as we will use that for patties, loose in omelets, etc. I am thrilled with how this turned out and for all my preparation and nervousness, it was very very simple to do. Now to move on to other ground meats. Thanks to Bob, Jerry, and Dan for getting me on the right path a few months back. I am very eager to see what else I can turn out.
