Seasons pretty well done. My daughter came down this past weekend for the last weekend of the season. She harvested a nice little buck. We saved the liver and are going to try a liver wurst. My friend that just opened a new sausage shop here has a very good recipe from back in Germany. It uses 20% l...

It is definitely one of the advantages of living in a small rural area. We have public land hunting available to us less than 5 minutes drive from town!

Got some sausage "fixings" this past week.

Nice and cold and snowy here and hunting season is in full swing. My daughter and I harvested 3 big mule deer on the weekend. (1 buck and 2 does). I got over 110 pounds of meat off her buck alone. I'm going to use the loins to make a dried cold smoked product similar to Dutch semi dry horse meat. I ...

I only use my bowl cutter when making emulsified products like weiners, Weisswurst, Bierwurst or Lyoner. I still use my grinder for everything else. I grind my meat before throwing it in the cutter, but leave the fat as small cubes. With a cutter if you're making an emulsion you need to add a fair b...

Bow hunting today, but tomorrow I'm making sausage from the last of a friends deer. Will be an easy day this time, just some Brats and jalapeño cheese salami. Last Sunday was a 12 hour day. I also installed and sided a walk in collier next to my meat shed. Just need to weld a rack to hang the meat o...

I add to that 17g/kg of salt and 3 g/kg of wieberg cutter phosphate. I also add a quarter whole lemon, seeds removed and a quarter of a raw oni...

The smoke didn't take too well on the first batch? I\m not sure if I should have the damper open during the drying to get that moisture out. Nice taste, poached to finish, but doesn't have that nice color that it should. The emulsified sausages were by far the best! Weisswurst was fantastic, and the...

The day is going a little slow. Garlic and farmers are in the smoker, hot Italian is done and in the freezer. Changed things up a bit as I found extra sausage in the freezer. Weisswurst and hot dogs are next. Just grilling up a few farmer and Italian patties from the left overs in the bottom of the ...

Yup very tough to hunt. We hiked in just over 10 miles to base camp. Another 2 1/2 hours up the mountain at first light. Was quiet cold and a fair bit of snow. Hunting moose with my longbow this Saturday, and sausage making Sunday. I just finished cleaning brass too. Loaded some 7-08 for my daughter...
