I bought this one on ebay and got it for half the price.  It's pretty darn good.

Wow thanks Santa. Got it copied. Hope you and Mrs. Santa have been well. As think we have chatted previously I had only one encounter with them world famous Hill Country sausages consisting of when the nice neighbor form Austin decided to snag us some januine Elgin Hot guts. Was by far the greasiest nastiest gut bombs I ever seen till been tricked into buying some E. Texas Pittsburgh Hotlinks. Now talk about nasty..whew. No wonder they eat mostly grits in that area. They should follow Smitty's Recipe. Now you can cut the cereal binder on my portion..and just a little more fat.

Howdy bigwheel, good seeing you around again. Sadly Mrs. Santa passed away 2 years back but all in all I can't complain. Still alive and kicking...

Deepest condolences on that sad news. Prayers of comfort headed upwards for you and yours.

 

Been making any cookoffs? They had good a shot in the local paper about one of the recent big ones in Jouston. It looked mighty smokey around there..just as most folks claimed it tended to get I think.

As a matter of fact bigwheel, Gordo and myself are doing a ribcook this weekend at the local watering hole...

 

apologies, wasn't intending to hijack thread...

@ Foamheart- I really wanted Rytek's book but I'm finding interesting information in the book. Ma found a recipe for Gyros that she's be pestering me to make.

@ Brian (BD) nice find on that book. I have that on my Amazon wishlist; I'll have to check out ebay.

I found the cereal binder as described at "The Sausage Source".  Doesn't seem to be the same as the more currently used soy based binders.

 

Do you think they are the same?  I've never needed a binder because I normally make pork sausage and boudins. 

 

May give this a try,  saves me a trip to Texas!

Very nice job on twisting the links. I use non fat powdered dry milk as a binder in the ones I make and your recipe is dang close to the old style. look in Rytek Kutas book as there are some very good old-time but basic recipes that are tried and proven,. I would say that book IS the bible of sausage making.  (and what do I know..heck i'm from New Braunfels)

Sorry for the late bump. I actually made this exact recipe this weekend. Tried a bit more pepper though, went with 5 tablespoons and it ended up a little bit more peppery than I would have liked. I would probably go with 3-4 next time. Overall though, it turned out great. Thanks for the recipe and the idea. Pictures below.

I need to find me a local source for cure #1. I can get it from Butcher-Packer but they want more for shipping than the cure costs.

Hey Dutch, is there TSC store anywhere in you neck of the continent?  If so, pay them a visit.  My local TSC carries all kinds of LEM seasonings and gadgets.  That is where I can get Casings, Cure #1, seasonings of all kinds, great place for the sausage making nut in the community.
