Re: The Wurst friday ever!

It was the pictures themselves. Says too many pixels tall. It's so frustrating trying to put in IMGUR, re size and whatever, that I'm not wasting my time!!!
Sorry fellas!

The Wurst friday ever!

Well it has been -35+ here for the last month. I've been killing pork, making bacon, ham and speck. I took Friday off and made up 3 batches of sausage. I tweaked my Jalapeno cheese smokie recipe and cut out the ground jalapeno and jalapeno flakes. Instead I added 1g smoked paprika, 1 g crushed red c...

The pork, onion and deer are cubed and cooked in water just not quite enough to cover. When done, Liver is dropped on top for 2 min each side to close pores. Everything is then ground through a 1/4 plate, with the raw bacon. Ground a second time through 1/8. Spices added and mixed. This time I stuff...

This liver smelled a little gamey but doesn't taste gamey. It was a little buck. I used 3.0kg belly trim, 1.7 kg deer trim, and 1.3 kg deer liver. Also 400g bacon.

Yes' it's a Lynx. We saw the mother about 100m down the trail. I was mouse squeaking with my mouth to get her attention. I looked to my right and this fellow and his/her two siblings were about 10m away! Seeing these guys was the highlight of the day for my wife.

Rabbit meat pies

My wife and I spent 5 days over New Years winter camping in the mountains. There is very little snow but was still brisk, lowest temp in the morning was -20. Rabbits were fairly easy to see and we shot 4. I stewed them up last night and am making meat pies today. Here is a pic of another fellow that...

Deer Liver Sausage time again (Leberwurst)

It's that time again. I'm using one deer liver, 30% deer lean trim, 50% pork belly trim and one 375g pack of bacon. I posted the recipe last year. I'm generally not a fan of the Pate type liverwurst but this one is more course, but still spreadable. Yummy on fresh bread or crackers. Meat is cooking ...

When I use the bowl cutter for emulsion I never add any milk powder. The emulsion seems to be excellent as binder. We add about 20-30% emulsion to the meat block and never use any binders or milk powder.

There's others here way more knowledgeable than me but I use similar meat all the time. I get barn clean out (smaller) pigs from the local Huterite colony. They are intensely barn raised as well. They are only about 6 months old and anywhere from 25-40 KG. Some times they're very lean so I need to a...

Good on you! I do similar here with a couple young single moms who work at the local supermarket with my wife. I take an extra doe with the flintlock and cut it up and make some nice lyoner and jalapeno cheese salami for lunches. 50 pounds of good fresh meat and sausage really cuts down on the groce...

Same as butter bean here. I use an auto body filler applicator as my scraper. My chopper is the same size and 4kg is about perfect.

Just got 500 pounds of fresh organic meat. What to make??

Well it's fall and that's hunting and sausage and salami time. My friend and I just got this nice bull moose. Had to carry it a mile to where we could get it to the 4 wheelers. Perfect timing as I'm all out of salami and Batsurma! https://i.imgur.com/8LSiaY4.jpg https://i.imgur.com/oGbCS5v.jpg https...
