    Going to run 50 lbs of SS through the smokehouse this weekend, the place I used to have do it for me used whole mustard seed in their recipe. I picked some up to add into mine and was wondering where to start on how much to add? What would be a good starting point?

    Ontay, evening.... Here is Len Poli's SS Or Beef stick recipe...

    http://lpoli.50webs.com/index_files/beef-summer sausage smoked-.pdf

    Looks like for 50#'s you would add 15 gms of seed... In some instances, folks have mentioned warming the seeds in a skillet to enhance their aroma and flavor... I guess that does something to the oils which can be a very nice addition to any recipe....

    Good stuffin' ... Dave

    I don't know if this would make a difference or not, but this is venison SS. Thought I would add that in case it matters.

    The venison SS i just made i added some whole mustard seed, 5 lbs venison, i added 2.5 Tbs seed. Thought i had a pic of it but i guess not.
     
  7. I use the same as Joel, but I also heap them so probably closer to Ricks...LOL

    believe it or not whole mustard seed is one of the reasons I decided to try and make sausage.... when I was a kid I remember all the good keilbassa around here had it in there, and then as I got older it didn't have it any more so I wanted to try and make some,

    I know it is not a normal ingredient to Keilbassa, but around here every butcher shop has their own recipe it seems

    [​IMG]    I know...Right? I never heard of it or tasted Kielbasa with Mustard seed until about 6 months ago...We bought some from a couple of places about 1 hour north east of me and it had Mustard Seed...I thought it was pretty tasty, a little weird, but good...JJ

    I was tempted to add some to the snack sticks I made today. [​IMG]



    lol I always have two bags on hand. When it falls below that I reorder.


    You certainly can't discount the presentation factor. [​IMG]
