    We are going on vacation next week and I wanted some sausage to take.

    Picked this stuff up.



    Casings soaking.



    Meat mixed and ready for a overnight fridge nap.



    How the meat looks today.



    Hog casing loaded on my cheap stuffer.



    Stuffed and linked.



    Test fry.



    This tasted great. Might try to slip some crushed red peppers past the wife the next time.

    I used up leftover ground picnic from the last time.

    I didn't add any water or nfdm. The stuffer pushed it out great and the patty I made didn't fall apart.

    Think these will turn out good.

    Thanks for looking.

    Those are some nice looking sausages C-Man.

    LOL.. Those pepper flakes will slip up on ya if you're not careful. I know I shouldn't but I usually just taste a small amount of my raw sausage. if I have a p[roblem its usually salt which you can taste in the raw mixture. Pepper flakes unlike cayenne don't release their heat until cooked.  I put a whole jar of pepper flakes in 5 lbs of sausage and thought I had bought bad pepper flakes. When grilling some chicken I threw a couple a links on the pit, thinking to get rid of it. It took the top two layers of hide off my tongue!

    Pepper flakes don't come alive '  till cooked! LOL
