Hey Dave........

Hope your buds enjoy...... It was tasty...... I have been doing sausage for about 20 yrs and I critique everything I do.................

 

Good luck and dont forget the qveiw

Joe you are a master of  sausage making and this one is no different .

post #24 of 39

OK, seriously, you people have got to stop doing this to me. Between you people here and a pregnant wife, I have loaded up 20 lbs in 6 months. After Nespas Pepperoni, this one is next!

this may be an ambiguous question, but does your recipe taste close to a traditional spicy chorizo that you find in a Mexican restaurant? I know there are many different styles of chorizo, that store bought chorizo that I found at Walmart is almost spot on to what a local Mexican restaurant here in Ohio uses. That is flavor I am looking for.

 

Either way, I am trying this out though.

 

Thanks again for adding to my waste line!

 

But hey, my doctor told me to watch my waste line, so i figured I better get it out there where I can see it!

Hey mkatts. Unfortunatly I never had chorizo so I dont know what to compare it to..... Maybe I'll have to try some walmart stuff but I usually dont buy sausage from a chain...... If you are doing this recipe I would go with the chipolte powder instead of the chili powder

 

Good luck and dont forget the qveiw

Will do!
When your in Walmart, it's in the cheese section next to the frigerated tortilla shells.
It's pretty cheap. I think it was $3 for I think a half pound.

Great job Joe
post #28 of 39

I have seen some excellent Spanish and Portugese chorizos ( they spell it a little differently) that looked just about like that.

 

Nice job!  Now for my taster?

 

Good luck and good smoking.

Man, that looks fantastic.  i gotta try that one.

post #36 of 39
Looks prefect, you da man joe!
post #37 of 39

Looks great, Joe!

 

This is a recipe I've added to my list to try. I've been searching for the 'keeper' chorizo recipe & this could be it.

I also like your two-step cold-smoke/secondary 'hot-smoke' process to finish. Made for great color in the final chorizo.

Coarse-grind looks to be the 'proper' way to go as well.

 

Thanks for posting this! drool.gif

Cool. You will like it. I have upped my cold smoke time to bout 3 hrs or when the meat reaches ambient temp or you start to see the smoke color on the casing. I have a batch going now... will post by the end of the week. One thing about sausage processing if you look at what you were doing a year ago it probably has changed trying to get better at doing it all the time....

Bumping this to the top.

 

I just made 10lbs of this over the weekend, using Joe's recipe and method. I'm very happy with the way it came out and it's presently blooming in the frig. Real nice color too.

I'll slice some up tonight and post a Q-view later.
