I can't believe I've never seen this website before!! After an hour of mad clicking and browsing I figured I'd better make an account and start taking notes. I moved to CO (near Boulder) 3 years ago and have been blessed with an elk each year so I have been just breaking the surface with sausage making. Good news for me, my neighbor happens to be a crazy Italian that's been in the restaurant business his whole life! He's teaching me to make my own prosciutto in a couple weeks. He also makes the best Italian sausage (fresh & dried) I've ever had. His sausage has won taste tests against all of the big name major brands but he says his wife doesn't even know the recipe :) so I'm out of luck.. but he gives me help whenever I have questions.
I work at home so I take a lot of breaks to cook and time off to make sausage of all kinds and jerky.
I'm looking forward to sharing and learning recipes & techniques and to get to know some of you.
Gotta run, elk meat to cube and this time it's summer sausage and breakfast sausage!
