Hi Gang,

I smoked up some no-casing salami a couple of weeks ago using a spice mix I picked up at Cabela's. It was mighty tasty and would love to do it again. However, the sodium content in the mix is super high. 

Does anyone have a resource for a low-sodium salami recipe? I tried a search and came up with answers for low sodium jerky and stuff, but not salami.

Any recipe you find for salami can be made with less salt.  Just don't change the amount of cure called for in the recipe.   Maybe start by cutting the salt by 25% and go from there.!  You may notice small texture changes.
