    About 90# to be exact!

    picked up a case of butts the other day

    going to make 25# of venison/pork Jalapeno and cheese summer sausage

    and 50# of smoked Kielbasa. and most likely finish off with some breakfast sausage since I am out

    here is the stock

    70#  case of bone in Butts got em for 1.42 a pound this time. that is probably the lowest I have paid in 6 months

    17# of venison, I will add 8# of pork to round it to a 25# batch.

    Here I am grinding  up the butts for Kielbasa. I make my Kielbasa like the old polish people from Chicago and use a rather course grind 3/8 plate ground once![​IMG]

    it took me about half hour total to grind 85 # of meat! another half hour to clean up

    [​IMG]

    25# of the pork for the Polish Kielbasa. I make 25 # batches because I mix by hand and it makes it easier to mix

    [​IMG]

    here is the 25#  of Venison / Pork  for the summer sausage

    [​IMG]

    I wound up with 10# of pork left over to make a small batch of Breakfast sausage.

    all back in the cooler til tomorrow. I have a dinner to go to this evening so i will resume  tomorrow

    stay tuned

    not really too tough to throw a batch this size together when it just a couple different kinds. I have made 120#  in one day making  4 or 5 different kinds and not counting smoke time only took me about 6- 7 hours ! now that is a big job! LOL

    Lookin good! To me it doesn't seem much different making 2lb or 50, set up and clean up is mostly the same. I haven't done 90lb though! Can't wait to see it all stuffed and smoked!

    I am working on my smokehouse so right now I have to use my GOSM for my smoking, so it will take a few batches to get it all done

    I have a 4X6X 6ft tall utility closet I am turning into a smoke house. when I get that done I will be able to smoke as 100# or more at once with no trouble.

    the beginning! but this is fodder for a whole new thread to come

    Stay tuned
