    Enterprise vertical stuffer

    I recently bought a 6 quart vertical stuffer. (12lb) - I have the small plate that doesn't press sausage very well. The meat passes around the edges of the plate to fast. I am going to cut a plastic disk from a $2.00 cutting board as soon as I figure out the best way to make the cut. This...

    Home flavored chips

    Just for fun I took a handful of plain tortilla chips, put them in a ziplock bag with a couple teaspoons of Emeril's essence and shook them together. This really gave the chips great flavor. Wife tried it again adding some popcorn salt and essence, they tasted like doritos. Sounds funny but...

    Smoked turkey spam!

    Yesterday I smoked a couple yard birds, threw on a can of turkey spam @ 220 for about 1.5 hours. I wasn't sure what to expect. WOW! It was great. I'm not a big spam fan either. We sliced it up and ate it with a spicy horseradish cheese. Wife loved it too! Darn! Should have smoked the...

    Pork Fat

    When a recipe calls for 7 lbs lean pork and 1.5 lbs of pork fat or suet are they talking about trimmed fat? I think of suet being in my bird feeder which is like lard? I often make sausage from a butt, shoulder or even pork steaks and the final product could have used more fat. Can I buy...

    Table salt in sausage recipes.

    I've read where you shouldn't use iodized salt. I've read it changes the taste of the sausage and leaves a bitter after taste. Table salt is all I've ever used so I don't know. If a recipe calls for salt, are they normally talking about non-iodized? More salt questions - are pickeling...

    Wine in sausage

    I've been looking at a lot of recipes for sausage and have noticed many call for a red wine, and a few white wine or beer. I have never added any of them. Do you use wine in your sausage making?

    Taylor Digital

    I was smoking summer sausage today and noticed the temp was not changing on the display very often. It would never count up by just 1 degreee, usually 2 at a time. Today it was going in 4 deg increments. I remembered reading that moisture at the little plug would throw the readings off so...

    Grinding Sausage Twice

    I have a small "Rival" (I think) grinder. It only has two disks, coarse and fine. I am having trouble grinding anything the second time. I even tried using the coarse disk for both grinds. I can't get the meat pushed into the grinder. We were filling brat casings and it would get very hard...

    Beef vs Deer

    Do you use the same seasoning for deer as you use for beef? I know deer is much stronger in flavor and was wondering if it would require a stronger seasoning mix or marinade? Thanks. MoHntr

    Hello everyone.

    Hello smokers, I am fairly new to the smokin' game. An associate from work was telling me how his family gets together around the 1st of the year to make venison sausage. 500-600 pounds normally. I asked what type of smoker they used and he told me "homemade". Well long story short, I built...
