UHHHH I hate it when I forget to take pictures.

I just started a electronic note pad of my work so that I have the recipe and pictures altogether and will help me remember what I made and how to improve the next time.

1 cup water
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons rosemary
1 teaspoon msg
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon black pepper -- (fine grind)
1 big pinch ground nutmeg
1 small pinch ground cloves

Mix all spices into the liquid and place in the freezer while you debone the butt and cut the meat to fit the grinder. Pour spiced liquid over the cut meat and mix well.

Run through med or fine plate and mix well again. Stuff into the guts and twist into links about 5" long.

Jeff's a good guy. I've had the pleasure of talking with him at cook-offs. He has quite a few tasty recipe's (maybe enough for a cook book
). And he makes a pretty mean pot of chili. 8)
