   Thank you, for sharing your recipe. I have been making Linguica  using a basic recipe that originated in the Azore islands off the coast of Portugal. I have made changes that try to replicate what I remember Grandpa’s tasted like. Below is the last batch. It’s close but still a little strong on the vinegar.

   In the old days, the entire family would get together on the farm and slaughter a pig. Each man would bring wine that he made. A weekend of drinking, dancing, sausage making and fighting ensued. The best wine was for drinking. The one judged to be lesser was used to cure the pork. This is where the fighting started. If you have ever been to a Portuguese get together,( Feast of the Holy Ghost ) you understand the drinking and fighting.

 

                            LINGUICA

 

 

Pork butt or shoulder     5 Lbs

Burgundy wine             1 cup

Red wine vinegar          ½ cup

Water                           1 cup

Garlic                            15 cloves

Salt                               3 Tb

Lemon                           1 thin sliced

Black pepper                  ½ Tb

Marjoram                        ½ Tb

Powered milk                 ½ cup

Prague #1                        1 tsp

 

Cut meat into sugar cube size pieces and marinate 24 hours. Keep garlic and discard lemon slices. Hand stuff into hog casing using a funnel made from the top of a wine bottle. Smoke over hickory for 5 hours. 160 deg.

 

Again Thank You

9 hr cold smoke, no hot smoke? I am trying to decide what type of sausage to make as my first try and I really like Linguica. Being able to just cold smoke it would be great as I don't have very good low temp heat control with my GOSM.

 

Also what type of casings did you use?
