sausage noobie needs basic italian sausage recipe

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by bagbeard, Jun 11, 2013.

  1. my local country butcher makes fresh sausage on tuesdays and is going to set aside some of the special blend of pork cuts he uses for his gourmet sausages.  he offered to grind it for me but i want to experience the whole process. Does anyone have a good recipe for something that will taste like store bought italian sausage minus some of the salt.  i want to experiment but have a couple of young ones that dont do well with new foods, so i want to stick with tastes they know.

    im looking for a fresh mild italian sausage.

    any help would be greatly appreciated

    thanks,

    ps for hot smoking, what temp is good for sausage?
