Bought 2 Boston Butts last week on sale to try making some air dried country sausage. I made some with venison a couple months back for practice. I'd always wanted to air dry some sausage, but was just unsure how to do it.
I've been making my own fresh sausage for a while, but I was still buying my dried sausage. This year I decided to talk to the man I've been getting my dried from. It didn't seem so hard, so I made some venison first. When it turned out OK, I tried some pork.
My main concern was the extremely mild winter and warm temps we've been having. When I saw that we were going to have a couple days cold weather, I got it ready. Hung it up in my building with a fan blowing on it last Sunday night. Since the temps were going to be in the 70's today, I went ahead and took it down. Fried up some this morning and even after only about 5 days, it is pretty good.
Sorry I didn't take any pics of the stuffing process, but here's the final product with a plate of eggs and grits!
For some reason I'm having problems getting my pictures to show in this post, so I'm just posting the direct link to the Photobucket album. Sorry the pictures won't show up otherwise!
