Family had Easter today, made a big pot of Shrimp & Crab gumbo. Everyone this year is doing the in-laws Hey, fair is fair. But my sister decided to tell me Thursday night that everyone was gonna show today. Basically they were bringing the new great grand baby from last weekend so Pop could see her. Thursday I had all ready made the andouille, cut the meat, done the spices and cures and put in the reefer over night. So it got an extra day........ Tomorrow I have a ham for a twice smoked project for the house and then I'll smoke the andouille.
Sooooooo............ I stuffed it tonight and was berry berry happy. Right size, right casing, I used spices for 10# on only 8 pounds of Chopped pork loin. I added and extra tsp. of crushed garlic as well as one of black pepper corns I had cracked. Smells totally awesome!
Only had one blow out.... and I found it while cleaning and washing before loading the tube!
We'll see what they look like tomorrow. But tonight the smell...... I feel like a proud father! I bet I could sell those puppies and break even too! LOL
If I can only remember and do all the right things tomorrow. AND twice baked ham...... Oh my, I am gonna have to buy a vacc sealer......LOL
