First--- many thanks to Piney Woods for the great things he gave me and Nepas for the help he gave me tweaking the recipe.
I love the new grinder...ground up 8 lbs venison and 5 lbs pork but in less than 5 minutes. First the large plate then added the Leggs 114 mix folded in and then cure mixed with 2 cups water. Then hand mixed for a while. Reground thru the small plate and mixed it up with a little more water til sticky.
Off to the fridge for an overnite.
Then stuffed the big casings and some 35/38 hog casings. Then back to the fridge for a bit.
Cranked the MES to 100 and hung them to dry for an hour.
Then maple pellets in the amazen added.
Raised the temp 20 every couple hours to 170. Got the IT to 152...then out.
Rinsed with cold water then hung in front of the fan.
I gotta tell we we very suprised at just how tasty this is. First time using a store boght type mix.
Anyway here's the pics!!
Have a great day!!
