Good afternoon!
I'd been wanting to try a sausage from meatsandsausages.com for a while called Chaurice, but the Mrs. informed me she probably wouldn't care for it. OK.
I decided to do two 1Kg batches, one of the Chaurice and one of Kielbasa.

Started with a boneless shoulder from GFS, ground it all through a 1/4" plate, separated into 1Kg parts and had 1lb left over for something else.

Mixed the two separately and kept in the fridge overnight.

Next morning I mixed them each with about a half cup of SPC and a little water and stuffed.

Had a couple of pinhole blowouts but nothing devastating and no links lost. I'm blaming the casings.....
Let 'em hang-dry for a couple of hours and moved to the fridge for a night.

I just had to try them so the next day I used my "Early Christmas Present" to cook a couple.

The Chaurice is just begging for Red Beans and Rice and the Kielbasa will go for the usual Kraut and fried potatoes or Spaetzle.
Thanks for looking, have a wonderful day and stuff on!

Thanks, Rich! The Chaurice isn't really all that "hot and spicy", but the chopped onions definitely makes it different.
I didn't notice anything from the crumbled bay leaf but the flavor must have blended in....

Those look great!!!! I gotta adjust my meat/flavor ratio to yours. I usually trim off too much flavor. I want sausage now....

Thanks! I actually trimmed about 1 1/2 # off the butt but there was still plenty of fat.
