    Used the recipe from Charcuterie:

    3 lbs skinless,boneless chicken thighs

    2 lbs pork.  

    3 tbs kosher salt

    1 tsp pink salt

    3 tbs fresh thyme leaves

    3 tbs roasted garlic paste-----yummie!!! Made it fresh here,the house smelled like a garlic factory.

    1 tbs CBP

    1/2 cup red wine

    Chopped the meat. Mixed the spices with some of the wine and tossed with the meat.

    Let it rest a few hours. Mixed with kitchenaid added the rest of the wine. Very sticky.

    Rested all night then into the cold stuffer.

    Waitng on the pecan dust to arrive to smoke. (to 165 IT)

    This stuff smells so good. The taste test was real nice.

    More pictures after the smoke.


    Have a great day!!

    Finished,cold shower and dried.

    I didn't know what to expect taste wise.

    Tastes like polska keilbasa, can't really taste the chicken or the garlic.

    Very good

    Good looking sausage.  Too bad it didn't taste like chicken though. [​IMG]

    I've had good luck omitting the pork fat and just using skin-on thighs.

    If you want more chicken flavor drop the pork.  You will need a binding/moisture retaining agent like soy protein concentrate.  With the roasted garlic (double yum) the flavor mellows so that you could have easily doubled that amount and that would also act as a binder.

    Still looks and sounds great as is.

    Thanks. No pork and double the garlic paste is a great idea. I will try that for sure.

      Last night when I opened the the big ziploc bag to vac seal there was an odor from the Merlot.

    The taste had changed some after a day in the fridge. Very good.
