I had a busy weekend, Local Kroger had Pork Shoulders for .99 a pound so I picked up four. I had a request for a batch of Texas hot Links and I had some Bratwurst mix so time to make some sausage.
I did not get many pictures as I decided to do this all by myself (I am also putting in wood floors and painting so my helper (wife) was busy painting). It was a bit more work by myself than I thought it would be. I only stuck myself with the knife once and took a big slice out of my thumb but I survived.
Here are the few pics I did get:
Texas Hot Links
Meat cubed and seasoned.
Sorry no pick of the process, here it is linked up (natural casing).
Hot Links in the front right. Bratwurst are stacks of 5 (5 per pack) Hot Links are three packs (total of 14)
My son being helpful as always wanted to know why I did not make any snack sticks? So I still had 3lbs of shoulder so since he is spoiled I got the grinder out again and made some snack sticks.
about 5 1/2 hours in the smoker
Thanks for looking
