Thanks Chris, appreciate it! My cabinet works great but I have come to the realization that I don't like the mold flavor that accompanies the dry curing process. My chamber is so good at producing M600 mold that I just cant get a product to not have pure white mold on it! And I have been making a to...

Thanks guys, it's a fantastic chamber!
I am not getting out of the hobby, merely moving and have to downsize unfortunately. I am making more fresh sausage tgese days and not as much salumi,
so my chamber needs to go to a good home!

Thanks!

Selling my charcuterie chamber

Moving and selling my charcuterie chamber. Chamber runs fantastic, no issues whatsoever, has full temp and humidity control, etc. Always had pure white M600 grow in the chamber, never an off color mold. Has air exchange fan, lights, etc. This is a fantastic chamber for curing and drying. Plenty of S...

Chris is correct....books are great but actually making sausages, curing meats, etc will get you up to speed much faster! Don't be worried about making mistakes along the way, is hats how everyone starts! Just make sure your cure % by meat weight and and your salt content are correct, and your sugar...

Yes, patties work fine. Good chorizo is supposed to be crumbly so all the little bits get crispy. You can freeze in patty form, freeze in bulk, in chubs, etc. All good!

My fresh Mexican Chorizo recipe

I have been making fresh Mexican Chorizo for many years, and thought you all might like to try some yourselves. This is my go-to recipe and is extremely tasty! Pimenton de la Vera is what I use, and it makes a great addition to this chorizo! Guajillo and Ancho chiles give it depth, flavor, and fanta...

Very sad news. Sorry to hear of his passing. I really liked his detailed approach to everything sausage and the like! I am sure he will be sorely missed by his family and friends.

I never cook my bacon.
I just smoke it for a few hours, par freeze for easier slicing, and then freeze.
It cooks in the pan when you cook it, no need to cook it before hand!

Paul, Laftpig, There is a simple solution to your wobble issue....simply make a spacer the same thickness as the blade, install when using kidney place, and problem solved! Stack washers together, or get a shaft spacer from your local hardware store, etc. Not a difficult problem to solve! Best of lu...

Crazy question, I know....Philly cream cheese in sausage?

Going to do some experimenting with fresh sausages, and wanted to know if anyone has added cream cheese (like Philidelphia Cream Cheese) to fresh sausages? Or is there a firmer cheese that would mimic the cream cheese taste, but not go completely gooey in texture? I am thinking maybe substituting fe...

I suggest you put the fan in the dooor, not the side, top, etc. The door has no electronics and no freon pipes, etc so you can modify without worry. No reason to cut a hole in the fridge body itself. When I made my curing chamber I drilled a hole in the very top corner of the back of the fridge, ran...

Dont think of binders as "bad".
They are very helpful and can be advantageous when used properly.

They will help give your sausage the texture, bind, and moisture you are used to having in a store bought product.
