Summer Sausage Question

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by alamar, Jan 24, 2016.

  1. Hey guys,  I am blessed to live only 15 minutes from Butcher & packer so I am in there often. I am going to make some Summer Sausage next weekend and need some advice. I will be making 25# and will be making 12.5# with just cheddar cheese and 12.5# with Lava Jack. The question is how much cheese would you recommend per 12.5# batch. I will post pics when I get things going. Thanks.

    I go 5-10% cheese to meat weight. So for your 12.5 pound batch, 10% would be 1.25 pounds.

  6. It appears that real life has gotten in the way of "Real Life" and I have had to delay the summer sausage session. I will be doing it soon and will post pics.
