    Sausage was hand made by a family of Polish descent; in a smoker constructed using Polish ingenuity; while drinking Polish Vodka; and listening to Polka music. If it is not "Old World" then I goofed up the recipe.[​IMG]
  9. Yes I see it is old fridge you used, good work indeed. 


    Old World Polish Sausage, OK what is the recipe, care to share that with us here?

    Pursuant to request......the recipe is as follows:

    Per 10lbs

    9 lbs Pork Butt (have added 1 lb of fat back in past depending on fat level of Butts) (single med-coarse grind)

    1 Lbs  Chuck- Beef (single medium -coarse grind)

    2 Cups Soy Protien

    2 teaspoons Prauge Powder #1

    5 Table Spoons Salt (Kosher)

    2 Table Spoons Marjoram (Polish Perfume)

    5 Cloves of Garlic (If you like lighter garlic, cut in half)

    2 Table Spoons Black Pepper

    1 Table Spoon Sugar

    2 Cups of Water (add more to get a good mix as needed)

    Very basic sausage recipe that I have had great success using.  I believe it was modified off of Kutas via trail and error but am not certain as we have been making this for some time.

    Be rich in all things that truly matter !!!!

    Those look great. Getting ready to give smoked polish for the first time this weekend. What kind of wood did you use? I was thinking Oak...

    Wood was pitmaster blend using an AMPS. Pitmaster is a combination of maple, cherry, and hickory......very very nice Thin Blue Smoke.

    I think oak would work just fine as well. I prefer hickory and fruitwoods myself.
  16. Really looks awesome....Nice job!...RTB...[​IMG]

    Great looking sausage. Mine is close to yours, I don't use as much Marjoram. I use a whole lot less water too.

    Nice job!

    Can someone tell me what the Soy protein is needed for?

    According to "The Sausage Maker":

    Used in Smoked or Cooked Sausages. Binds the fat and meat for a smoother consistency. Cuts shrinkage in the smokehouse by improving moisture retention. Contains 7 times more protein than meat does.
