Passing Wind Estates Bratwurst Video

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 

I was out of bratwurst. This was an untenable situation! My buddy helped me make a video while I replenished my supply.



 



I started off by rinsing and soaking some hog casings the night before.



 





 



I cut up 3 pounds of pork shoulder (weighed after boning) and 2 pounds of chicken thighs (skin and fat left one and weighed after boning). I ground that through the medium plate on my KitchenAid.



 





 





 





 



I measured out my seasonings, added them to the meat and mixed by hand for 4 minutes.



 



The seasonings for 5 pounds of meat are:



 




  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar

  • 2 teaspoons coarse pepper

  • 2 teaspoons nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon marjoram

  • 1 teaspoon ginger

  • 2 teaspoons mace



 





 





 





 



A fry test confirmed the spices were right.



 





 



I used my LEM to stuff the bratwurst.



 





 



I twisted them into 6 inch lengths.



 





 





 



I poached the Bratwurst in Negra Modelo beer with some onions added. Poached them for 10 minutes and strained out the onions.



 





 





 



I grilled the bratwurst for colour and fried the onions to caramelize them.



 





 





 





 



Then we dove in.



 





 





 



This is one of my favourite sausages, I love it!



 



Here is the video if you are interested.

I just got 6 chickens at the local market for 10 bucks man. But after seeing disco's video I am on my way to the store for Brats. Damn if I don't love them. All I needed to tip over the edge. If I had some pork and casings at the moment I would be making some and some Boudin too.

I am fully stocked with PBR Disco. Is there any other way? I found out long ago from a good Wisconsin buddy that PBR and Brat's and Sweet, did I say sweet Walla Walla sweet onions go together Better than most other things on the planet. He took a carload of onions home last time he visited but left me with some great Bratwurst. Dang I wish he would visit more often. Johnsonville for me tonight.

Sadly, we don't have Pabst up here but I do find Negro Modelo works well too!

I love me some kokanee and it is dang tough to find in the PNW anymore. Molson seems to be the only thing I can find. It's all fuggy'd.
