    our new Best friend ,Pete and !71 pounds of heaven  ...:)

     I was at the meat market getting casings for the capacola we (cycletrash and I) were making and met Pete there and we got to talking about

    making  the prosciutto and Pete mentioned making soppressata and offered to let us come over and watch !

     Meeting this great guy has been fantastic ,informative and a blessing for Rob and I

    It's a shame you guys can't smell Rob's (cycletrash) smoking room off his basement !

    I have to stop about every other day just to smell it and to hug the prosciutto

    on the way home from work!
  13. Wow!!!!  Looks like quite an operation you have going there!

    Did you guys grind all of that with the KitchenAid unit? That is a lot of grinding no matter what you used. Looking good

    HOLY COW!!! Or should I say Pig? That is one big mess o meat. You must be feedin half of Ohio. Are you using the hand grinder to stuff all that meat? Perhaps you'll share your reciepes?

    We used hand grinder and 2 kitchen aid mixers, and we decided not to ever to use the kitchen aid as a stuffer ever again....we are planning to upgrade on equipment. we are divided all this up 4 ways...thats why its a large operation.

         As far as the recipe its so simple you won't believe it.... 1 oz of salt to 3 pounds of meat , add black pepper and red pepper flakes , roasted red peppers and hot peppers to taste. stuff and hang for 6 to 8 weeks.

    Looks great!  We used to do 100 pounds every November and dried it over the winter in the attic.  Just salt, pepper and sambal olek.
