    Dried sausage is going to be one of the projects when we get to our next home. I wasn't quite sure how to go about the curing area. I read this and thought it is workable.

  4. What temperature was the MES set for after the drying off?

    Congratulations fpnmf, there's nothing better then mixing up a sausage and have it come out exactly the way you want it.

    I love the idea of using the cubed meat for half of the mix too It looks great. This will be on my to do list, near the top. Thanks, Dan

    I have been buying Andouille from Jacobs in LaPlace, Louisiana for over thirty years. I am pretty sure they use beef middle casings. I was raised in that area, living in Mississippi now. I was at Jacobs about two weeks ago and bought some andouille. Tried to make some last week. It came out good but not like Jacobs. I would love to find a recipe that would come out like Jacobs.

    I could not find beef middle casings here. I will have to order some. Also I use 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch chunks like Jacobs. If anybody has the Jacobs recipe I would love to have it or even one very close to it. This was last weeks batch:

  9. I have done a couple of batches of andouille and it has turned out very good. Basically the same recipe you used with a few tweeks as I have gone along. I have 10# in the fridge with the seasoning on it. Will grind, stuff and smoke tomorrow.

    Question: have you ever added soy protein? If so how much? any input from you guys would be appreciated.

    If you get that recipe pass it on to me I would appreciate it. Someone earlier in this thread mentioned that Jacob's probably dried cure their sausage which would be why the casing had the texture I described. All I know is I really like their andouille. Yours looks really good as well. I also like the coarser texture of the sauasge. I'm down to about 2lbs in the freezer. Going to have to put in another order.

    I have not tried soy.

     I love the recipe with a little less garlic and  some hot paprika.

    The recipe as linked in 31 is the best yet.

    I may make some small changes next time,but no too much.

    I am goint to make another load this week.

    I use natural casings and after smoking they are just like Jacobs. I plan on trying the above recipe sometime this week if I can find some beef middles.
