I don't know much about making sausage, but there are plenty of folks here that do....you might have to wait till tomorrow though...kinda late on the other side of the forum...
Thanks for the help
Yup, Made a 15lb. batch last week using Rytek's recipe with high temp. cheese. Only got one pic of it going into the smoker.
As a beginner, there are safer cures to use. I would recommend Morton's Tenderquick, as it's premeasured to give the right amount of cure and salt in one easy step. Simply add 1 Tbsp/Lb of meat, and your spices.
Cure#1 is used in INCREDIBLY small amounts, and overcuring can be dangerous.
That said, no matter which way you go, FOLLOW DIRECTIONS to the letter when using cures.
Also, you only need to cure if your going to smoke at low temps. If your going to cook it there is no need to cure.
Looks awesome. Where can i find ryteks recipes? How long was your smoking time and at what temp?
Rytek Kutas has a book "Great sausage recipes and meat curing" published by

You're most likely going to smoke at 250 so dont use cure. No need to add those chemicals if you dont need it. I make 30 lbs at a time and it's always great.
My simple recipe (adapted from the great book " The Sausage-Making Cookbook")
5lbs of ground pork
3 T of salt ( I use pickling)
1 T sugar
1 T Black pepper
10 cloves of garlic
1 T marjoram (fresh is much better than dry)
1 C Water
2 T of smoked paprika (optional)
Mix it all up and refrig for 24 hours. Stuff into casings. Cool smoke for 1-2 hours to dry the sausage and then heavy smoke ( i do 180 degrees) until done. I then dunk the sausage into cold water and then let it dry before storing in the fridge or freezer. People love it so I havent mucked with the recipe at all.
I dont have any pictures of the finish product but here is a bunch I just stuffed.
