First-timer brats and Chicken sausage w/Q-view

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by dadwith4daughters, Apr 4, 2009.

  1. Well, after reading all the sausage posts over the last year, I dove in and bought a grinder on Ebay and a stuffer from Northern Tool. Getting ready for a Memorial Day Q. My first batch of brats came straight out of Rytek Kuta's book. I then made a batch of chicken/sun-dried tom's/garlic/basil from another great book called Charcuterie.

    Here are the brats.


    I slow cooked them in 170 degree water until an internal temp of 150. Packed and froze'em.


    Here are the chicken sausages. They're on the smoker as I type this. Will freeze and pack as well. I love making this stuff!

    Great looking sausage. Let us know how those bratwurst taste. I can't seem to make Rytek's sausage without personalizing it with more garlic, jalapenos, etc. The brats are on my list of things to do next. Thanks for the pics.
