    AKA Taylor Ham

    My version.

    De bone the blade from the meat. You can use boneless to.

    Rinse the pork after, sometime you have bone dust from the band saw cutting.

    7 lbs of cut pork butt, 2 lbs of brown sugar cured bacon and 1 lb of 90/10 GB ready for grinding.

    Grinding the meats, Alternating butt, bacon for an even mix.

    Getting the dry ready after the grind.

    I love Taylor Pork Roll-----Always have!

    It used to come in a bag, like "Bag Sausage".

    MMMmmmm---Simple---With yellow mustard on a steamed hamburger roll.

    Occasionally with a slice of cheese.

    I'm watching!

    Now on my last trip I heard of Jersey roll/taylor ham for the first time. I got to taste it and it wasn't bad at all. Now Thanks for the recipe maybe I'll make some and send it up to my cousins who live there and probably have never had it.

    I cannot believe you can make this! We have Taylor pork roll all the time and absolutely, positively love it. I have never heard of anyone making this of all things. Nepas just continues to blow me away. Damn! Okay, I'm from Jersey, most of you wouldn't understand. [​IMG]

    Its a product of the Eastern states, PA, NJ, NY, DEL

    Like a pork sausage type thing that you can fry up slices.

    Goes by different names. Taylor roll, Taylor loaf, Pork roll

    Looking real good so far, Nepas old Buddy!!!

    Hey----Anybody else agree that 3 thin slices (about 1/4" each) of fried Pork Roll in a sammy, is better than one slice at 3/4" thick???

  18. Napas ( the sausage man ) that looks great . I have made pork roll before with 50 /50 pork /deer meat mix and it turned out very tasty .The last step in the reciepe I used called to boil the sausage did you do the same ?

    No i didnt boil it. With the fat content it would have had a fat-out.

    I went all the way in the smoker with it. 1.5 hours of smoke and the rest bumping heat to 165*  Took the IT of the pork to 155* cuz most the time you will fry the pork roll slices. It sorta like a round spam (for those of you who have never had pork roll)

    I normally dont cut the sausage stuff right out from the casing but this time i did, i needed to look at it and get a taste. Taste like Taylor but better.

    Looks great!!

    However, it's a little too far North---Like about 80 miles.
