    Yes this is a dry cured fermented sausage. Sujuk.
    There are a few diff spellings of this sausage, sudzhuk, sucuk or soujouk



    I'm going to do this using B-LC-007, hog casings, Mold 600. All beef chuck.

    Going to use a plastic tote with a lid in the front closet.

    I just searched for a beef fermented sausage and that is exactly what came up.

    looks good.

    I just ordered a beverage cooler to use as a fermenting/curing chamber.

    Going old school, no fancy equip. Each weighed and tagged. 48 hour ferment.
    Had to add some salt water to up the humidity to 85%. I was at 39%, it jumped to 74%. Temp is 75, was 73.

    Dont know if i'm going to mold these yet.

    Was curious about salt solutions for humidity control.

    posted a question about it in Advanced Curing.

    How accurate does it maintain the humidity in a closed chamber?

    In a closed chamber it is a "Decent" humidity, however in a closed chamber your still best with a coolmist humidifier.
