i have looked at a couple on amazon and other places but like other seasonings its hit or miss when it comes to finding a good one , just hoping to get a consensus as to a good one like i did for "leggs " Italian seasoning several here recommended it and it turned out to be a keeper

C1956, IMHO I would purchase the Stanley Marianski book titled "Polish Sausage". Full of great recipes with easily obtainable spices!
except you upgrade the cuts of meat

Generally speaking, regional sausage recipes will have a few base ingredients, with some signature spices added. Many formulations are very simple. A polish kielbasa (fresh) for example will typically have salt, white pepper and garlic. Then signature spices could be nutmeg or marjoram . Because salt amount can make or break a good formulation, it's best to make your seasoning from scratch and adjust seasonings to suit your taste.

I have made this one for Easter the past three years. Very close to what I remember when growing up. My brother and family think so too.


I cut the garlic back to 6 cloves because it is pretty strong with 8.

Having grown up in a Polish Family, Grandparents made their own Kielbasa, and having a Polish Deli a few blocks away. Kielbasa was simple, Salt, Black Pepper, Cure and Garlic, maybe a bit of Marjoram. Both Grandfathers passed when I was a child and never got recipes. BUT...The following is Exactly the flavor I and my Polish Wife, grew up eating with the addition of 0.5g/Kg Marjoram added...JJ

Heads up: With any so called "simple recipe" use the best and freshest ingredients you can. I grind all my spices immediately before making. You guys sure on BLACK pepper? I thought for sure white for kielbasa.

In Poland, each city has an old town square, a catholic church, and a regional sausage.

Here's a rabbit hole:

In the end, all the smoked Kiełbasy are very similar to one another.

I strongly recommend these two classics:

If you're smoking

If you're not smoking

Maybe it was the region the owners of the the 3 area Polish Delis came from, but they all used Black Pepper...Or, there were Scary Black Specks of Unknown Origin!...JJ
