    I have the Revised Edition of "Great Sausage Making Recipes and Meat Curing" by Rytek Kutas. Copyright 1984. I believe the latest edition is the fourth, and I'm pretty sure I read on the forum here somewhere, that it contains quite a bit more new information. I'm curious what more it does contain, and do those of you that have it and might have had an older version, feel it is worth investing in? Thanks.

    Mine is the same vintage as yours. I haven't seen the newer one, so can't help you there. Maybe you'll just have to buy the 4th edition just to compare.[​IMG]

    I only have the new one. So I have nothing to compare it to. One thing I wish they'd have is full color photographs of everything. It seems that with curing and stuff, coloring is something that might be valuable to see.

    I think Bob (desertlites) has the first addition I think him and rytek were freinds and his is a signed version. But he says it' is the same just color picture and it made with paper not stone tablets like his. Ha HA

    I have the same vintage book and asked the same question in another thread. I'd love to know the difference but i won't spend the money for the lastest version.

    does yours have equipment and things from THE SAUSAGE MAKER I still think that is gonna be the main dif the new one or 4th edition has advertisment for the sasuage maker company, also changed the name of insta cure #1 or what it was noted
  7. I just got my copy today .the 4th addition and the cost to my door was $15.79 from Amazon. I was reading the intro and a few recipes can't wait to get some more butts. I like the thought of having all the ingredients something I put in it. The breakfast sausage is going to be the first try .I had to order tender quick on line because no one stocked it around my parts. Now I'll be looking for some insta cure 1 to start on some of his recipes.Bill

    I would buy the new one at 16 bucks, but then I would have to trasfer all my scribbled notes.

    Maybe i can convince my kid to buy one.

    Hey Bill, try your local HyVee store for Tenderquick. Thats where I get mine here in Rochester.
  10. I will look for a Hyvee first. I was running around for work Mon.- Tue. in St James MN and never thought to look at the smaller stores.Our Company is remodeling a Wal mart in Apple Valley MN (and 2 more in the metro) now but they dont have a big enough demand to stock it,thats what Cub said also.I need some insta-cure#1 now .I think it will be on line too.Thanks Bill
  11. I will trade you my new one for all your "Scibbled notes" one[​IMG] I write in my books alot,how else will you remember what works and what doesn't.
