"salami"
« on: December 20, 2009, 12:58:37 pm »

I'm putting that in quotes as to not offend the purists..

This post yesterday caught my eye...  But I don't have the time/equipment to do a proper Tuscan Salami.  So I remembered one CRG did a while back. That's more my speed.  So I took the easy route, and added one of the necessary Tuscan flavors from anderson's post.  See if you can guess which one.  ::)

Here goes.




Not going to win any beauty contests with these..




They are resting in the fridge to set up a bit, while I heat the OBS.    More to come..

Ready to go.   I threw in a ham as well.   Covered it in CT. (no reason, I just haven't used any in a while)



And on cue, it started to snow.



We'll pull the salamis when they hit 165*.

Have you tried this kind?  It's really good!  Got a nice garlicy zing to it.

One finished outside in the Bradley, and while the snow picked up - I brought the other one (and the ham) inside to put in the oven.  I was making quite a mess stomping in and out to check on it.. 

I let them rest a bit, and sliced into one of the 'salami' logs:




Oh yeah...  Gonna do this again.   The Red Wine put it over the top.  I'll leave most of the other stuff out next time. (sorry Mrs Dash!)

I've got a couple packages of fibrous casings from Bass Pro.  Next batch, I'll stuff 'em in those to make them pretty.

Update.   Brought the salami to work today.   It's all but gone now...
Leaving it in the fridge for a day really brought the flavors together.

Definitely a keeper! (even the Mrs Dash - but will grind it to a finer powder next time)

Thanks for the inspiration Anderson & CRG!


Next batch will include some ground pork and will go in pretty casings..

I got that mix at Bass Pro..

The garlic/pepper overload and the red wine takes it over the top.  I subbed all red wine for the 1/3rd cup of water in the original recipe.

How was the texture ?

Was it like store-bought salami or more like a fatty ?

It was pretty tight..   Not like a meatloaf or anything like that.  I could slice it fairly thin.
