I love mine, it keeps the meat cold, 5 lbs is no work at all allowing more room for experimentation, also there is the table or work surface size requirements. 15 pounds just needs more room to stuff, twist and turn. 'Course were you are from you probably do those fancy multi-twists anyway.


That we do,,,,the 15 is great when doing summer sausage and big batches of other sausages because you dont have to relaod so often,  but If i only want to do a small batch a 5 is not sucha production.

Been following this thread and I can't wait to try this. I have two questions. Can cure #1 be substituted for tender quick and how much should I use? Also, can this be done caseless? Can I roll it like a fatty and smoke it on the rack? Thanks

Yes you can go case less. Yes you can use cure #1. 1 teaspoon of cure #1 per 5 pounds of meat.

Thanks so much for the quick response. Got some 90/10 that I'd love to use to make this recipe. One last question. Can I finish in a hot water bath if I go caseless?

I suppose if you wrapped it really good in Saran Wrap you could finish in a water bath.

Well usually when I make smoked sausage the two options are apply smoke for a while and then finish cooking in the smoker without smoke. This takes a while. Or finish the sausages in hot water once you're done applying smoke.

So I was planning on preparing this salami without casing by forming it into a log, kind of like rolling a fatty, smoking it below 170 degrees until it reaches the color I am looking for, then bringing it up to the desired IT. I could do this in the smoker but that can take hours. With other smoked sausage I have finished cooking the sausages to the desired IT in hot water not exceeding 170 degrees. This is much quicker and gives them a smoother shape. I was wondering if I could finish a non cased sausage in a warm water bath?

I don't recommend you finish in a hot water bath especially if they are not in a casing... I have seen summer sausage that has a discolored look through out the middle by cooking too fast and or not allowing the cure to work

 

My 2 cents

I would not do the hot water bath either, good luck and let us know how it comes out, just took some more of this to Elk camp and was a great hit again with some guys that stopped in from another camp!!

 

A full smoker is a happy smoker

Thanks so much for the input. I will just let it ride in the smoker then. Will have to find a day where I have the time. I'll be sure to share when I do!
