I have been wanting to make links for a while, I make patties all the time, so I ordered some sheep casings and pork butts were on for $.88 lb. I had several projects going on at one time, smoking cheese, getting ready to make bologna and salami along with the links.
I have made Hot Links and Kielbasa using hog casings, first time using sheep.
Day 1, De-boned, cut up, ground and seasoned butt then back in the fridge till tomorrow.
I used A C Legg's Sausage Seasoning
Day 2, Casing soaked overnight and silky, Filled stuffer and started stuffing,
Cut up and ready to weigh so I'll know how much fat to add
Not quite 7 lbs.
First gring using large plate
Seasoned up ready to mix then in the freezer to firm back up
Second gring using small plate
Putting on the sheep casings. These are pretty small and my fat fingers
Off and running,
Here is what I wound up with
Had to try one !!!
Putting them in vac bags and in the freezer to firm up before I seal them
14 bags with 8 ea. 112 overall
A shot this morning after a night in the freezer, Got them sealed and back in the freezer
Thank you for looking ! BTW these are easy to make and Gooooood
