    Default Got that sausage urge (again)

    Sausage time !

    This time some Summer sausage, beef snack sticks and beef Tex-Mex snack sticks. At least that was the plan. Unfortunately the mutton casing I got were not of the best quality and after they split three time during stuffing, I decided to make snack stick meat balls !

    The snack stick meat balls are a little to salty but the smoked garlic Summer sausage is real good.

    Pictures (oh, by the way my camera finally decided to stop functioning altogether so I took the pictures with my video camera - not the best quality, sorry).
    On the left Summer sausage stuffing, on the bottom beef stick, and on the right Tex-Mex :

    After cold smoking 5 hours with cherry sticks and maple dust, on to the Weber for a little indirect finishing (yes there was one Tex-Mex stick that survived) :

    Done and vacuum-packed (Summer sausage on the left. Hmmmm seems like one disappeared !) :

    Summer sausage in the cold smoker for 2 hours with also with cherry sticks and maple dust :

    Out of focus closeup :

    After finishing on the Weber, 20 minutes in cold water before vacuum-packing :

    Thanks for looking.

    Try and find some ICG casings, my local butcher carries them but if you cant find them PSG seasonings is a supplier. Hands down the best casings i have ever used.

    The sausage balls look like a tasty treat with "something cool to drink"
