First kielbasa run..

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by slidetuba, Apr 23, 2016.

  1. So, I finally bit the bullet and made some kielbasa for Orthodox Easter, or Pascha. I found a recipe from letsmakesausage.com. After finding some pork shoulder for about $1.49 a pound at Costco... After church today, I started my first sausage project.. What do yinz think??

    Good Looking sausage!     I bet you will be investing in a dedicated stuffer before long.

    Beat me to it! Looks great but you will cut your time to stuff way down with a Stuffer. 5 Pound Stuffer are under $100 and places like Northern Tool & Equipment runs sales and stocks inexpensive replacement parts. Grizzly sells a nice unit too...JJ

    Agreed, I have a Northern stuffer.  I stuff 17 mm casings with the plastic gear's, under 100 bucks.

    In for the result!! The town I live in has some serious Polish folks here, with a couple kielbasa companies located in town.

    edit - (Ha! "yinz" - the first time I heard that was in basic training. I forget the guys name, but we called him "ash tray", because for some effed up reason, he put cigarettes out on his forehead!)
