    So along with NEPA's brats I made some italian sausage.  This was honestly the best Italian I ever made and I will post the recipe if anyone would like it.  I dont have a ton of pics through the process but I am going to make 25 pounds next week so I will post pics then.


  2. It looks good Jim! Now post the darn Recipe.

    Happy smoken.

    Here's the recipe.  I used 8 pounds of pork shoulder (Boston Butt) instead of 3 lean ground beef and 5 ground pork and it turned out excellent with plenty of moisture.  Id like to send kudos out to the person that had this recipe posted originally but I cant remember who it was.  Since my wife and most of my family dont like biting into whole spices such as fennel and anise, next time I will measure my whole spices, toast them a few seconds to dry them out and then grind in a spice grinder before adding to other spices.  I used Merlot instead of water because water tastes like nothing.  More Flavor!!!

    That's one thing I like about this board, when someone posts links, they are actual links.
