Today's Chorizo Smoke

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Did a Turkey yesterday, nothing special about that but the Grandson loves Smoked Turkey so who am I to say no. Today I will be working up 12.5# of Mexican Chorizo. Have a very nice spicy blend I mixed up last night that I will be stuffing in a short while. I will be using 36-38mm Hog Casings for them and then smoking with Hickory and Oak. Here is the Recipe for 10#:



Mexican Chorizo
 
10     pounds ground pork
1/2    cup cayanne peppers
1/2    cup chili powder
20     cloves garlic, minced
3       tablespoons salt
1 1/2 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
2-1/2 teaspoons dried mexican oregano
2-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1-1/4 teaspoons ground cloves
1-1/4 teaspoons ground coriander
2       cups distilled white vinegar
1       cup ice water    
Binder for the amount of meat you are using.
Cure #1 for the amount of meat you are using.
 

Q-view to follow.

Those are gonna be D-licious.

If I use cayenne chile powder, how much should I use?

I can't get fresh here.

What kind of temps are you gonna run at?

Here they are in the smoker with the smoke just starting. I have a propane smoker so my temps are a little higher. The lowest I can go is around 180 so that is where I smoke at.

 

I used cayanne powder from dried peppers. The total powder I used was half cup.
