    I smoke with pecan predominately and some hickory. My andouille has heavy smoke flavor.
    My uncles did not use wood they used corn cobs .

    Beef middles for casings because it has always been done that way in our neck of the woods.

    Patted dry , poked full of holes on a rack , stacking tight. Just because that's the way I have seen it done in my hood.
    First row .

    Second row

    There's a couple of lengths that are inconsistent because of miscalculation on casing slipped on stuff tube.
    Nobody got hurt though and it's all good.

    Back into the fridge for further curing and flavor balancing. Hopefully it will drain a bit more as well.
    This stage is important IMO for a good end result.
    Anywhere from 1 to 5 days on cold storing.

    Is it a Typo or are you adding 1 teaspoon Cure #1 to 1 Pound of Sausage? The standard is 1 teaspoon to " 5 " pounds...JJ

    Use as follows:  Cure per pound of ground meat/fat:

                                     U.S. Measurements

     Amount of Meat/FatAmount of Cure
    1 lb.1/4 tsp..05 oz.
    2 lbs.3/8 tsp..08 oz.
    3 lbs.1/2 tsp..10 oz.
    4 lbs.3/4 tsp..15 oz.
    5 lbs.1 tsp..20 oz.
    10 lbs.2 tsp..40 oz.
    15 lbs.1 Tbsp..55 oz.
    20 lbs.1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp..80 oz.
    25 lbs.1 Tbsp. + 2 tsp.1.00 oz.
    50 lbs.3 Tbsp. + 1 1/4 tsp.2.00 oz.
    100 lbs.1/4 C. + 2 Tbsp. + 2 tsp.4.00 oz.
    tsp. = teaspoon; Tbsp.= Tablespoon; C. = cup.
    oz.= ounce

    Although cure #1 has salt in the mix, when using it in sausage making additional salt needs to be added.

    I read 1 tsp for 5lbs, jj. I'm having trouble deciphering the recipe, though...

    What's your question specifically?

    I think I got it, Brud. When you mentioned cure for Anduille or smoked sausage, I thought you were talking about two different sausages and not just Anduille. Sounds like you were just making it clear that you need a cure if you're going to smoke it...
  16. brud

    Yes that is the meaning. Sorry for the confusion.

    No worries. I've never stacked it like that to cure, but I think I'll give it a try (if I can make my links as even as your's lol!).
