Making Sausage For The Holiday Today - Linguica, Kielbasa & Andouille

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by smoking b, Mar 27, 2014.

  1. Well I need to rebuild my sausage reserves so I figured what better day to do it than the holiday today  [​IMG]

    I started with this butt.

    I don't like a lot of bone in my sausages so I took it out...

    Then cut it up into little pieces to run through the grinder.

    I also decided to throw in this chunk of pork that was just hanging around not really being productive...

    I deboned it as well & cut it into pieces to grind.

    Both bowls of meat were then placed into the freezer to firm up while I sanitize the grinder parts & decide what sausages I want to make. I will be making 3 kinds & they will probably all be cured & smoked.

    I don't care what kind of holiday it is I'm in!!! [​IMG]
  5. Lol - no I mostly don't  [​IMG]   The only exception is if I am camping & have to pack light & walk a long ways. Then I might add a dash or 2 of bone fragments to the sausage - keeps me from having to carry pretzels too!  [​IMG]
  6. Today is National Joe Day guys!! Celebrate before it's too late & make sure to congratulate your local Joes!  [​IMG]
  7. Pics & updates coming soon - currently have too many irons in the fire!

    Meat ready to go.

    I put back 3 lbs for breakfast sausage & a fatty  [​IMG]

    Stuffer loaded with natural casings & ready to go.

    Closer view number 2.

    Andouille mixed up & ready to stuff. I've been wanting to try a new Andouille recipe someone sent me & finally did it today. It called for red wine & I used some red grape/red raspberry that I made.

    Andouille stuffed.

    Closer view.


    I left the casings dry for a while & now they are ready to head to the smoker.

    & here they are ready to soak in the smoke for 10 - 12 hours. This will be a cold smoke - ALL THE SAUSAGES HAVE CURE

    AMNPS running hickory & cherry pellets.

    I know kielbasa, I know andouille, what is linguica? Would I have tasted it in something before?
  12. [​IMG]    I would have thought for sure you had eaten it plenty of times Foam. It's great in rice or soups & I really enjoy it mixed in with scrambled eggs. It is a Portuguese sausage - maybe you have eaten it & just didn't know that's what it was?  [​IMG]

    Nice looking sausages Jeremy.......[​IMG]         I see you have the cabela's grinder.... How many chunks have you taken out of the pusher so  I dont use the safety that goes across the tray... I need to order another pusher or make one that wont hit the auger without the safety.....
