    Cant find anything on sazisa Italian sausage. Is it a brand or a place where it originated... I have a great italian sausage recipe. if you ever had italian sausage at the fair this is a close replica....

    4 tbsp kosher salt

    2 cups ice water

    3 tsp fennel seed

    2 tsp coarse black pepper

    1/2 tbsp turbinado sugar

    10 lbs pork shoulder

  4. I used this recipe in my shop for twenty odd years

    1 lb Pork shoulder
    2.25 gm Chillies (red chilli flakes)
    2 gm Black Pepper
    1.5 gm Coriander
    4.25 gm Salt
    1.75 gm Sugar
    0.5 gm Caraway ground
    1.5 gm Fennel ground

    Grind meat with course plate, mix spices in a bowl and dust over course ground meat. Mix by hand until spices are evenly mixed (two minuets at the most, do not over work). Regrind with a medium plate and stuff into 29/32 hog casings or equivalent.
  5. good find...I bet that is it...will give it a shot with a 5lb batch this weekend....need to make room in my freezer...have a side of beef, two turkeys and a 12 bone prime rib taking up all my space....plus a bunch of cookies and cakes from the christmas baking....Thanks.  Will let you know how it turns out provided I can get my grill dug out from the 15" of snow last week...

    Thanks, Flareside.  I will also be trying that one in a couple of weeks. It does look a little heavy on fat, so I might work that a little.  I usually add a little fat per butt anyway.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    ifitsdeadsmokeit, don't forget to give us some q-veiw when you do these sausages. They do sound good!
  8. not enough time on my hands to make them yet...the pork has been sitting in the freezer waiting for a weekend free....but now the wife says I have to make a bed for my son...maybe I can take a few hour break to get it done while she thinks I'm working on the bed....woke up really early this past weekend just so I could get a corned beef ready for st pattys day...
