    Few weeks back i made up 2 chubs of salami to put in my cure cabinet. Tonight i needed to slice one and look. Here is what i seen.

    When i tied the chubs they were tied tight. Notice the shrinkage.

    Sorry i didnt have the flash on

    The casing used is protein lined.

    Im happy with how they are progressing. They do need a few more weeks as they are still soft in the middle.

    Going to re hang and let them go. Next time i will make smaller length chubs.

    You're out of control. I'm pretty new to this forum andI won't lie, you have more different types of good sausage's than anyone. Not just sausage or jerky, but all of these advanced meats. I'm very impressed and want to thank you for your recipes and photo's, etc, !!  You've inspired me to take my obsession to a new level! Cheers Nepas!

    Looking good rick. Theres a problem with your curing chamber..... Theres this guy who has no patience who keeps going in there and cutting open all the sausage. Install a lock, give the key to the mrs and tell her not to give you the key till this date....... Your just like your sausage... Still soft in the middle..........[​IMG]
