As many of you know, I've been getting food ready for the upcoming Elk and Waterfowl hunting seasons. Joe (Boykjo) sent me some of his kielbasa seasoning mix a while back and I've just had time to mix some up. This is only the second time I've made kielbasa, the first was from a recipe that Jalan43, quite a while ago.
I mixed up 5 lbs (he sent me enough to do 10 lbs) ground pork butt with 1/2 the seasoning mix ( weighed the total amount and just halved that). The only thing I did differently was to add a couple tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes instead of the cheese and jalapenos and I cold smoked it.
We cooked it with German Sauerkraut and Pork (only because I'm not a huge fan of Kielbasa). Needless to say, I didn't eat any pork!!! That is some of the best kielbasa I've had and I will be mixing up the remaining 5 lbs this week along with another 5 lbs of Jalan43's recipe for comparison!!!

Thanks for looking and many Thanks to Joe for the seasoning!!!!
