Jamaican Jerk Chicken Sausage w/pics

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Well...on a little bit of sausage kick lately. Got a great deal on boneless skinless chicken thighs the other night and they had habeneros on sale and that got me thinking about jerk chicken and then I started thinking about jerk chicken sausage. Adapted a jerk pork sausage recipe from Len Poli's formulations. Decided with the help of some
SMFers to omit the cure and just make these fresh sausages which I will later grill over charcoal or hot smoke.

Cubed up 5 pounds of the thighs:


Took out the seeds and stems and diced up the habeneros with gloves on!



Mixed up the seasoning with cold water and the habeneros:






Added a half cup of NFDM:

Mixed until texture felt right and fried up a test patty:




Realized that I omitted the cure so it needed a little more salt so I added that to the mix.

Put it in the fridge overnight while the casings were soaking since a couple days ago

This morning I began the stuffing:



Then linked them up:



The test patty was great besides needing some salt. Awesome jerk flavor and some serious but flavorful heat from the haberneros. I'll be back soon with the cooked pics. Thanks for looking!

They weren't cured so I smoked them for about 2 hours and finished in a warm water bath:




Very tasty and some serious heat!

Thanks Richie! I have a pretty good tolerance for heat but I am cursed with acid reflux. So I can't eat these too often!

Thanks so much! They are hot but took the seeds and stems out so the flavor is real good without burn your face off heat!

Great minds think alike.  I had taken that same recipe from Len Poli and did the same thing and made jerk chicken sausage.  The flavor is great.  Try making up a pineapple or mango salsa and put that on top.  Cuts the heat a bit and adds a unique island tasting flare to them.

Since we can't post links here, google Len Poli and you will find his website with all his recipes.
