    Well sorta. I'm going to call it Bacon  SS.

    This recipe is more like a bacon Summer Sausage.

    beef   400 g   0.88 lb.
    pork   350 g   0.77 lb.
    bacon 250 g   0.55 lb.

    salt           18 g           3 tsp.
    Cure #1   2.5 g   1/2 tsp.
    pepper   2.0 g   1 tsp.
    sugar   1.0 g   1/5 tsp.
    garlic   3.5 g   1 clove
    paprika   1.0 g   1/2 tsp.
    coriander   1.0 g   1/2 tsp.
    ginger   0.5 g   1/3 tsp.
    water   100 g   3/8 cup
    2 1/2"x14" fibrous or synthetic SS casings

    Cut bacon into 1/4 to 1/2" cubes.

    Grind beef and pork twice with 1/8" plate. You can use pre ground meats if you want. or emulsify like i did

    Add all dry ingredients to the 3/8 cup (100 ml) of cold water and mix thoroughly with ground meat. At the end of mixing add diced bacon and mix together until mixture feels sticky.

    Stuff mixture into the synthetic or fibrous casings and form chubs 12"long. Tie or hog ring the open end.

    Hang for 2 hours at room temperature.

    Smoke with hot smoke. Start at 130 and bump in 10* increments to 160* until your chubs are an IT of 154*

    OR

    When the chubs are an IT of 140 you can pull from smoker and poach in hot water at 160*-167* until you get a chub IT of 154
       
    Shower with cold water (dip in cold water) for 5 min and place in a cool place to cool the sausage below 52*

    Store in refrigerator.

    The dry ready to mix into meat.


    Emulsified the pork and beef, mixed in the dry. Use ice cubes to keep the meat cold. (sorry my pics look orange?)


    Added the cubed bacon, mix by hand


    Now bag and in the fridge for stuffing tomorrow or friday.

    Might make a nice gift for the RV park ground crew. Everyone likes a clean site around their RV. [​IMG]

    I'll be watching this as well.  Bacon adds wonders to a lot of things.  The recipe looks very good except I would  [as personal preference] make one change.  I would add bacon that has been fried nice and brown and crisp rather than just smoked.  It will be interesting to see the end results.  Reinhard
     
  10. Looking good !

    I tried this recipe last Feb. stuffed into 60 mm fibrous casings and was happy with the way it turned out. Next time I will add a couple of tweaks and just a little more bacon for my taste, but all in all, I thought it was good.

    Does look good!!  What is it about the flavor that you don't like?  Just interested for I have never made anything like this [ Taylors Roll].  I have made bacon summer sausage and formed bacon from ground beef, but that was with Curley's formed bacon seasoning.  Maybe adding bacon with that seasoning with the meat mix would be good to try,  Reinhard

    Its just the close taste to Taylor. Kinda like a pork butt sausage taste with bacon.
