    Made some Fresh & Smoked Kielbasa a few days ago,the sticks were made to Pickle so here they are.

    http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/240692/kielbasa-smoked-and-fresh

    Made a pickle brine


    Kielbasa getting ready to cut for the jars


    All cut up only have enough for 2 jars ( reason to make more)


    Not looking to make them over spicy so 2 of these little fire crackers per jar


    Brine was boiled then simmered and cooled



    Now for a 2 week wait 

    Thanks for looking

    Good looking sticks there. Did use use a bought pickling spice or is it your own concoction? I just put a quart jar of lil smokies in the fridge. I found a copycat recipe for Penrose hot pickled sausage and thought I'd give it a try. If the taste is good, I'll have to do like you and make some sticks.
