Lonesome Yankee Bratwurst (2003)

10 lbs. boston butt
3 T. salt
1 T. sugar
2 T. dry mustard
1 T. MSG (optional or use less if you want..if you skip it add another T. of salt)
1 T. ground coriander
1 T. ground sage
1 T. paprika
1 T. black pepper
1 T. ground rosemary
2 t. cayenne pepper
2 t. nutmeg
2 cups water or beer or a combo of the two*

Add all spices to liquid. blend and refrigerate. Cut meat to fit grinder. Add spiced liquid to meat and mix well. Grind through fine plate. mix well again. Stuff into medium hog guts. Twist into 5 inch links or therabouts. Refrigerate immediately and freeze any not used within a couple of days.*Beer seems to intensify the flavor of the spices. So if you like a little more pronounced spice flavor use beer.(Budwieser works well). If you like a little blander use water. To split the difference use a cup of each.
