Well many thanks to all that helped me. Here we go! Here is my kitchen all set up for the making of my first Kielbasa. Sorry I got carried away with the trimming, and forgot to take pictures. Here is my first batch on the fine cut. My FIRST RING! I am not gonna lie, I was pretty impressed with myself. One thing I forgot was to link it. Is it to late or can I link it before smoking? The finishing stuff. The C on the left was a result of a blow out. LOL managed to save it. I ended up doing about 7lbs for my first batch, went all pork like Boykjo recommended, figured why not that way if I screwed it up wouldn't be out much. I did use a premix from Waltons. Had to use some math skills but think I nailed it. Can't wait to put it in the smoker in the morning. I will update as the weekend goes on. Once again THANK YOU TO ALL that helped sort me out on my other thread to pull this off!. Can't wait to fire up the hot box!
