    A friend gave me a wild Hog he killed last weekend. So here we go.

    Jalapio's and seasonings all mixed up 

    i use smoked sausage seasoning from a butcher supply here in Mississippi its really good i use it in all my smoked sausage deer pork all of it

    and cure #1

    here is my meat 

    7lbs wild hog

    6lbs pork butt  i didnt have any pork fat 

    came out to 12lbs of meat

    1.9oz hot peppers

    i put in 2.5 cups dry milk to hold in mioster

    the fry test was really good

    added in 1lb of high temp chedder cheese  its all i had

    sorry didnt get pics of stuffing it

    in frig over night to dry some

    in to my modded MES 40 inch smoker 

    1 hour at 110 degrees to dry out some more

    after the first hour i set my PID to ramp up 10 degrees ever hour for 4 hours

    i finish in a water bath

    Well first time using this smoker some of the casings got to hard and I still have to finish them in a water bath none of the meat is done so the therm says. But that's ok live and learn some of them are perfect. That's the ones I will serve at the party and I will eat the rest. But I'm loving the learning and eating. Heck I've been a machist for 30 years and I'm still learning that

    Never had it either, my son used to hunt them in the Everglades with a bow.

    His buddies & him always cooked them in a pit over coals, or on a spit over a fire.

    He said they were real good. I think they just look nasty.

    Would like to try some of that sausage you made though. It looks real good.

    Some of them just don't look cooked.

    If you checked them with a therm, I know that's not the case, but it sure looks that way.
