Re: Best Linguisa yet

Yup, everything you guys said on these replies is what I've been reading here for the last couple years. The main thing that sticks in my mind is getting the meat mixed with the salt and cure the night before. Really looking forward to doing some Polish and some Hot Links the same way. Interesting w...

Best Linguisa yet

I've been making Linguisa for about 30 years. Always using the recipe and process in Rytek's book, Great Sausage Recipes and Meat Curing. Based on the book, the only thing I didn't do according to his recipe was mix all the ingredients minus the water and vinegar and let it sit in a cooler overnight...

Country hams are salt cured, and need to be soaked for a day or two. True, but these are salted far beyond any country ham I'd ever tasted but this is how she said they liked them.

Re: Smoked breakfast sausage

I'm thinking that it is the amount of salt. They some MSG too, but that has nothing to do with curing. One other note is, there is a lot of fat in Broadbents sausage. The one I make is the hit every time we cook it.

Well, I fumbled it into place. Not sure I can do it again though. Seems like as things pop up to make a selection, there is a bit of guess work or experience necessary. Not good at guess work and my experience level is low!

So, do you convert it to grams or ounces and weight it out?
