Has anybody used any of his premixed seasonings? Just curious. I use PS Seasoning 260-B Italian sausage seasoning exclusively. I used to mix my own but after trying this the first time I loved the flavor, and got rave reviews from my friends. Another great aspect of using this is that I gat the sam...

The PK100 is a great way to go. I've had one for many years, like Redzed mine was sold by Cabelas and made by PS Seasonings. I smoke mostly bacon, sausage, and hams tho the Pro 100 has the capability to act as a great roasting devise also. By flipping a switch the unit runs from 110 volts to 240, ru...

Chuckwagon

aka as Barry Byner, passed away on Feb.10, 2018. He taught me all I know about sausage making and charcuterie, was a great wit, and a fine man. He will be missed, may he rest in peace. RAY

I got the same mixer last year and it works flawlessly with my Cabelas 1hp commercial grinder. The clean up is pain, but worth the hassle. I'd think the gear issue would have something to do with the attachment. RAY

Thanks a lot Red! I thought the calculator you posted in the Makin' Bacon thread was good, this one is even better. Thanks again. RAY

Thanks for that Bob, will do. I just measured a level teaspoon of cure #1 and it came out to 6.5 grams, quite a difference from dumping two tablespoons of cure #1 into a rub for a 12.5lb. slab of belly. Never too old to learn. RAY

It seems difficult to find a massage bacon curing recipe the folks can agree upon for being effective, yet safe. The curing calculator Redzed provided in the initial thread seems to take away a lot of the guess work, thanks for posting that. Looks like a 12.5lb slab of porkbelly will take 14 grams o...

Re: Cabelas 20lb mixer

Although they don't run and hide our boys are tired of freezing there hands every time we butcher. Have read reviews good and bad on t...

Wow, that's a beautiful looking hog! I've whacked a couple of sows in my career with just about that much fat on them, there will be no backfat needed for the sausage you'll be making Chris. I usually cut the grind 60% wild hog and 40% domestic porkbutt just to ensure no gamey flavor, but I doubt th...
