People are using this book and saying it's the bible of sausage making with recipes. My curiosity got me and I ordered it. I got it last friday. Paid about $20 with shipping included. I'm only on chapter 4 and I have already learned a few things after making sausage for approx 20 yrs. I have a old stand up freezer in my spare room that I stopped using due to the high energy cost. I was going to sell it but after reading the smoking meat chapter I see I have another smoker build in my future.
