    I treated myself for Christmas and bought myself a New Mincer and Sausage Stuffer.

    This is the first time since then that I have been able to play!

    Thanks to Reinhard for his thread on Hot Links, http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/232748/made-some-willies-texas-style-hot-links

    5 pounds pork butt
    12 oz of good beer
    2 T black pepper
    2 T crushed red pepper
    2 T cayenne
    2 T papricka
    3 T kosher salt
    2 T mustard seeds
    1/4 cup diced garlic
    1 tsp cure #1
    1 cup dry'd powdered milk [I added this to retain moisture

    Minced the Pork,

    Mixed in Dry Ingridients and Spitfire Beer,

    I let this sit overnight in the fridge to enhance the flavours.

    Quick taster!

    Can agree these are Hot Links!!!
    Then did a second mince straight into the Natural Casing,


    Forgot the the finished picture only have this when linked and Vac Packed,


    Time for a spot of lunch, a plate of Hot Chicken Wings,


    Then I did some Bratwurst, sorry it was a bought mix,




    These tasted just like the Bratwurst I had in Germany when I was a teenager!
