    Du ya'll put a binder ( soy protein or powdered milk ) into your smoked sausage? The books I've read say it helps the family recipes I see don't mention it.

    My recipe book calls for it, NFDM,soy protein does help keep moisture in and prevents fat outs.

    I use powdered milk all the time.  It is a binder which helps retain the moisture in the sausage.  I typically use one cup per 5 pounds of sausage mix.  You could ask these questions in the Sausage forum as well for more information on sausage and on this topic.  Lot of guy's on there that would help you.  Reinhard
