    When I get it at the grocery store its always in the freezer. We always keep ours frozen until we put it in the meat to stuff.

    That is what i am making on my days off. Another question i have is what is a good smoke house. I have a mes 30(to small) and a trager grill. I am looking at some thing that can hang a 22 inch long summer sausage easily.

    Depends on how much you want to spend. A UDS can be built fairly cheap and an upright smoker can cost upwards of a couple grand.
     
  8. I would like to ask another question that goes along with grimreeper. At which point do you put your hight temp cheese in the mix? Do you put it when mixing cure and spices or is this a last bit thing like citric acid.

    Thank you for that smokeamotive. I am looking for some thing that will do upto 50 lbs at one time.

    I would add the cheese and/or japs (if adding them) after the spices and all grinding is done. That way the cheese stays intact. @10 percent.

    Sounds to me like you'll be looking at building a smokehouse. There's other people here more qualified to answer that than me and I'm sure one will be along to help you out.

    I would keep the cheese in the freezer. Now I would build a smoke house before you buy a smoker for just cheeses and low temp stuff. Now they are easy and the plans I think are in the build section here.

    That is what we have found works the best. We mix everything up and let it sit over night. Then the next morning we add the frozen high temp cheese and mix everything again and then stuff into casings. What we found was if we put the cheese in the night before it got all mushy. The cheese seems to stay more solid and intact if we stuff it when they are frozen. That's what we found anyway.
