Check out this site www.sausagesource.com. The spice mixes are Ricks own brand and they're fantastic. Give em a try. The prices for equipment aren't bad either. I have the good fortune of living only a few miles from this little shop and you'd be amazed at the amount of equipment he can pack into that little store. The best part is walking into the place. The pleasant odor of all the spices hits you immediately. For folks like us who all share the same interest its like a little shot of ecstacy! Rick is also more then happy to answer any questions one may have on sausage making and related topics. His address is on the bottom of his site. Tell him Joe sent you.
