Who Wants To See Pics Of My Wiener?

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 

Or wieners as the case may be.

 

Yesterday me and some friends ground up 50 lbs of cow and pig and mixed in some spices. My wife and I finished stuffing them this morning into cellulose casings (my first time using cellulose). The wieners are getting 8 hours of light cold hickory smoke. The first batch was smoked overnight while the 2nd is smoking right now. After smoking they are getting poached, the casing is being stripped off, and then vacuum sealed.

 

2nd batch in the smoker. This is about 20 lbs worth.

How they look after 8 hours of light cold hickory smoke:

The first batch is poaching right now and then being hung up in the garage to dry. Some more pics to come later.

The results are actually rather spectacular. I used the Len Poli recipe again that you told me about but made some minor modifications. Per 10 lbs of meat I used 6 lbs fresh ground chuck (I had a 30 lbs chuck roll) 3 1/4 lbs fresh ground boston butt (had 17 lbs of butt) and then 3/4 pound ground bacon. I also omitted the MSG (gives my wife a headache), upped the garlic a bit, and used cultured buttermilk powder instead of NFDM. These have a really nice buttery taste to them. Best version I have made so far.

They worked well. It was no different than if I had used natural or fibrous casings. I was really surprised.

Those look great!  Is it better to peel them than leave the skin on?

The cellulose casing is inedible so it has to be peeled off. These are skinless wieners.
