    This Memorial Day, Sandy and I had the pleasure of having over BayouChilihead and his wife as well as our dear friend Ruby.  BC wants to get into sausage making so we planned this day around 20lbs of Polish Kielbasa, and Fresh Italian sausage.  I started Sunday night by breaking down 2 pork butts and a chuck roast.  That night I pre-measured seasoning packets and cure.  The Kielbasa was cured and smoked.  Since we had to eat I smoked 6 slabs of St. Louise cut ribs and Chet brought a wonderful pasta salad as promised for the lesson!  LOL  Sandy made her homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast as we started early and a blackberry cobbler for desert.  I also made my oven baked Italian taters and mushrooms.  It was a great day.  Picks are below.

    The grind:



    Mixing by hand.



    Stuffing:  BC calling Houston, we have lift off.  LOL



    Linked Italian:



    Kielbasa some collagen casing and natural. Off the smoker



    Supper ribs and spread:



    Ribs on the Lang



    Ribs on the platter



    With the sausage lesson and Supper I didn’t post all the pics.  There were 38 total and well you get the idea.  My belly is full and I am tired so this is it.  LOL

    A note for BMudd.  Brian the callogen casing worked but was a pain for me to use.  While I like the idea of consistant size the casing tended to blow out easier than the hog casings.  I got them from B"P and handled them like noted it Ryteks book.  I only did about a third of the Kielbasa with callogen and switched back.  I not only was able to stuff faster I did not have to tie off links and far less blow outs.  I will use what I have but will probably stick with natural casings after that.

    Wow, Rick!  Looks like you had it all this weekend.  Everything looks excellent.  You can tell BC that talking on the phone isn't helping though!  [​IMG]
     
  15. I did help some, I was there to observe mostly. It was a great time and I am convinced I want to start making sausage. And the phone call was to my wife telling to light a fire and get there not to miss the festivities!!
