    I know, another Jalapeno/Cheese Kielbasa, but I told Joe that if it worked for me he'd get the credit. Well it worked! I broke his 10# mix in half for a 5# batch & used 7oz of cheese. Using my MB gasser for the box with a hotplate for heat and with the mailbox attached with a 6" AMAZN tube, I smoked at 120 for 3hrs til the links hit 98it.
    Since it was really windy, I didn't even try to light the gas to finish, so it went into the house oven at 180 until it hit 160, then into a cold bath.
    Taste test and ready for packaging.
    They came out great! I'll use 5oz of cheese instead of 7oz next time though.
    I wonder if Joe has a Hot Italian recipe 😏

    tropics, boykjo and tjmitche like this.

    Neither had I, Richie, it just sounded good. Not really knowing how much was needed, I ordered 2 lbs of the stuff. Now I have enough hi-temp cheddar to try it in a lot of things LOL!
    Thanks for the point!

    This is an awesome Italian sausage calculator i found on here.

    SORRY i dont remember who to give credit to.... i just add my own cayenne and pepper flakes to spice it up. I SWEAR YOU WILL BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND A BETTER RECIPE !!!!! 

    as for the "cracked fennel" ..... i just use whole fennel seeds and roll them good with my rolling pin. have never seen cracked fennel for sale where i live. ALSO if you plan on making this more often by a pound or 2 of fennel bulk and just vac pack what ya dont use. the little spice bottles can be crazy pricey !!

    have fun
