If you are looking for authentic kielbasa below is a copy of an email I got from a lady from Poland.
As for the Polish kielbasa, a typical recipe can be found below. It looks

The authenticity is secure : > ))
9 kg of pork
1 kg of lean beef
230 g of salt
3 tablespoons of sugar
150 g of black pepper
6 gloves of garlic
some mustard seeds - suggested 1/2 cup
Put meat and other ingredients in meat processor (use the seep with large holes). If meat looks too lean, you may add 1 kg of lard, cut in very small pieces. Mix everything very well and put in a cool place to store for the night. On the second day, pipe into thin intestines and smoke. Good smoking of the kielbasa is essential!
Total prep and cook time (together with smoking) - 5 hrs
