So after talking with BMUDD & realizing I didn't have to have a grinder stuffer to try some sausage I had to try. Got my spices from Coulmbia ( thanks again bmudd) Bought some ground pork. Three teaspoons of the spices in the processor & then a pan fry test!!





These were awesome fist time out. I put some green chili's & monterey for the wife which was another hit!! Going to try the brat spice next! It' spouring outside so I can't try to smoke any yet, but I think I made my plea for a grinder/stuffer.

Thanks guys I will be making & smoking these more. Quick question though. They were kinda dry. I noticed others added some fat? can I use fat from a cap maybe?? Or bacon ends??

Get yourself an inexpensive meat grinder, and you'll be able to control the amount of fat mixed in your sausage.  I save trim from pork shoulders in the freezer, and grind it up when I make sausage.  My last batch was almost 80#.  I try to keep the total fat content around 20%, so I usually add some fat to pork when I grind it.

Your sausage is probably too lean.  Also, when you mix in your seasonings, mix the seasonings in some water and then dump in your ground pork.
