Well it is that time of year again when the pigs are butchered and the deer are hunted. I have been making sausage for about 2 years as well as charcouterie meats such as panchetta and salami. I am really enjoying the process and have invested quite a bit into the hobby. Not that my friends don't mind; they get 'samples' all the time to road test my recipes.
I am an emergency room nurse and flight paramedic by trade, but love this whole make your own stuff. I have tons of questions and will be looking forward to 'meating' all of you in the forums.
