First Summer Susage

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

Well after many weeks of sifting through this forum i mustered up the courage to try making some summer sausage. Thanks to this forum i was able to find B&P, and being so close was able to go directly there and purchase everything i needed. Great friendly staff. Prices were cheaper than anywhere else and no shipping!!!


I used Ryteks recipe and added two large jalapenos and approximately 6 oz of Kraft Crumbles, the three cheese blend ( it was all the store had). Was unsure how the blend would taste, but who knew! turned out great. 


I also picked up the A-maze-N pellet smoker. Have to admit i really didn't want to purchase it, but after the first use i'm not sure that id go back to my chip tray. Its a solid little unit. Great smoke flavor. 


Ok Q-view time....


Bought 7.5 lbs of chuckie and 2.5 lbs short spare ribs. Ready for the grind


Twice ground, added the jalapenos, cheese and ECA here



Of course the taste test. 



Stuffing time, and a maybe a few cold beverages while I'm at it 



All stuffed. Ready to dry before the smoker





Smoking away!!




After 10 hours, got a cold water bath, bloomed, and then stuck em in the fridge




The first victim...





Not sure what the discoloring is...thoughts??




And the Money Shot!!!! 



Turned out great!!!! No fat render, or melted cheese. 



Thanks for looking. I'm really happy with the way everything turned out. Well worth all the work. Thanks to all who post in showing us newbies how its done. The big question....Whats next?!?!

Thank you everyone for the points!!! I have some hog casings that came in the mail a week ago. Back to doing my homework on making some brats and kielbasa.

Really nice. Summer sausage is at the top of my short list for things I want to try making. It was actually the reason I got a grinder and stuffer in the first place but it's too cold for the smoker I have during the winter where I live (we generally spend a few months in the -20 to -50 C range) so I've been playing around with other things in the meantime. Gonna have to give it a shot now that it's warmed up. If I get a result anywhere even close to as nice as yours on my first try, I'll be beyond happy.
