My name is Jerry. I am 62 yrs old. I live at Higgins Lake in northern Michigan. I am a hunter and have made jerky for over 30 yrs. Two years ago I started making my own sausage. I make and smoke venison sausage. I make fresh breakfast and hot Itialian sausage. I have smoked meats in two different smokers the last few years. One is a large gas BBQ converted to a smoker and the other is a kettle type.I have smoked ribs, jerky, sausage, whole turkeys etc. One thing evades me, the receipe to make the Kowalski Hunters sausage. The closest I have come is a Polish Kabonsky. Anyone got something better?

Hi Jerry...welcome! I'm not familiar with the sausages of which you speak, but post that question over in the sausage forum and someone can probably help.
