    As noted that is THEE place to start, but don't stop there. Do a lot of searching on this site. There has been a tremendous amount of great info posted on here by site members. And don't be afraid to ask questions here as well. Lots of great folks willing to share their knowledge around here as well.

    As far as equipment a grinder, stuffer, and good set of scales can get you going. Some people do use the grinder to stuff as well I have used mine to stuff but prefer a dedicated stuffer.

    Be careful now, this is another addiction (obsession) that could change your life..... but its all fun !!! Get the book and it will get you started in the right direction. I have been making sausage since 1988 and did not get the book till last winter (I'm kinda slow !!!).

    val, they all are correct... thats the book to get you started, great reference book that will get you great info not just on sausage but on the different cures, bacon and ham making, etc... if you dont have the equipment i would start looking around, ebay or craigs list for a start. lotsa sausage makers here so theres alot a knowledge here to be tapped as well.
