    Looks great! Piscataway is not that far from you...[​IMG]...Speaking of Not Far, if you want to see some amazing Kielbasa, several styles, head 30 minute South to Pulaski Meat Products, in Linden. Besides a huge variety of sausages and cured meats, when it come to grocery and imported foods... If they don't have it...It is only available in Poland!...Great website...JJ

    As usual, your sausages look excellent!

    When I read the part about pickling, I said "YUM" out loud, the wife asked what I was talking about, and when I told her, she said I needed to pickle some soon! So, points for getting me some pickled sausages! :biggrin:

    I and my family, couple generations of butcher's, made 1 batch of Kielbasa mix, Cure #1 included, and just smoked most but held back some for sales and eating fresh. Less work and the cure helped keep the fresh batch's quality, for sale and in the freezer. I have actually eaten most Fresh Kielbasa with cure #1 and other than a slight pink color, when cooked, can say, there is no major difference in taste with or without cure...JJ
