I would like to make chorizo, but have a couple of questions. First, I went on the sausagemakers website, and they have it there but it says it is a fresh sausage. It says that I don't need instacure#1, or soy protien concentrate. i would like to smoke this for flavor but dont know if I should seeing I'm not using any of these things. Second...I went on PS Seasonings website and they have it also, I see theirs comes with the maple cure. I personally feel I can get "more bang for the buck" if I use the sausage Makers seasonings, so what do I do?
