    I would like to start off saying this recipe is awesome! Thanks for sharing your recipe ShooterRick! I ground up a 10 pounds of Pork Shoulder and doubled the spices listed in the below link... The only thing I did a little different was I added 6 diced up jalapeno's to the mix (also suggested by Rick). It took a little practice not popping the hog casings or getting too much air in the casings but after a couple pounds of meat I got the hang of it... Still need practice twisting them up but I'm sure it will come with time. Enjoy!                    Happy Smoking, Kean (AKA Smokin - K)

    Original thread that gave me the idea:

    I didn't take any stuffing pics as the wife was gone and my hands were pretty dang messy and busy... Here's where the magic happened..

    Those look great. Did you smoke them at all or was this a fresh style sausage where they are raw and go right onto the grill?

    I kept them raw and vacuum sealed them up.. Thought about smoking a few and eat them right from the smoker but then changed my mind. Gas Grill and or cast iron are soooo damn convienient when your hungry now... LOL! Next batch I want to do a smoked sausage. Thinking snack sticks... Any suggestions for a newb? Kean
