    Sounds like we are going to have our hands full with pork also we won't have full kitchen facility to clean equipment do switching from pork to chickenmight be difficult

    Keith,

    I have watched a lot of vids on it, seem easy.   I'm getting pumped about meeting ya'all in November and making some sausage.

    NP Doug.   I'm looking forward to making sausage at the 2013 SF Gathering and meeting everyone.
     
  4. How long does it take to prepare 40 lbs of meat into sausage? Sounds like a lot.

    Shouldn't take to long. Maybe 4 hours?

    It all depends. Snack sticks will rake a lot longer, making different seasoned sausages, clean up, smoking the sausage....... Anywhere from

    4hrs to all day

    After I posted 4 hours I was thinking that was probably an incorrect time. [​IMG]

    what are all of your thoughts on this? usually saturday is pretty full with the competitions going on and relaxing in the mean time....i think friday would be ideal, i know not everyone will be there friday earlier. we could start all teh sausage work around noon and take our time so more people can take part in it..just throwing out ideas here...

    Remember it's going to smoke for probably at least 8 hours unless we poach it. Might need some cool time after cubing before grinding and like Keith said it will need rest time for the cure to do it's work. Someone had mentioned snack sticks, is that still on the agenda? And how about the jerky? Also we will be using an untested smokehouse, it should work fine but if we do have any problems with it...well you get the idea.

    i can bring some sliced EOR and we can marinate it thursday morning once we get setup...then throw it in the smokehouse with the sausage. i'll have a base marinade made up and we can alter for heat or anything else thursday...this way we dont have to worry about slicing and all that with everything else going on.

    We won't be there until Saturday. I'll recheck my work schedule and see if there is school on Friday.

    Same here Joe.... don't know if I can wait that long... might have to take a little vacation before then... still have about 3 weeks (besides the the week and a half for the gathering) I have to burn before the end of the year...

    Right now I have 74 hrs of vacation left. I'll be using 40 hrs in November for the gathering. I'll carry over the remainder of 34 hrs to next year. That will give me almost 5 weeks vacation to play with for 2014
