Nice post. Once you start making your sausage and find a nice recipe you won't be able to make enough. I try to find recipe's from scratch instead of buying a kit.

Thanks for the pictorial Kevin. I will be referencing this when I begin the sausage voyage. Great tip on how to deal with a blow out too.

Good job Thanks  :)
I wish I knew about this site 17hrs ago   :(
I just put some Hi Mountain Polish sausage in my Bradley 40minutes ago, hopefully it works ok. The only step I really missed was the casing tap/flushing. I just soaked them for an hour in warm water then proceeded with making 10lbs of sausage.
This was my 1st batch ever so I can learn from it.
Anyways Kevin, Thank-You very much for that great step by step instruction. Top Notch!!!

I agree or at the least make this a sticky in this topic.

I agree. I haven't fully read it, but it looks very well done. I will start working on it after the New Years.

Ok, for those of you who wanted this back, it's up again. Let me know if I missed something, or if you think I should change something in it.

See you in the funny papers  ;D

Thanks, this is great.

I bought a hank of casings in brine, the kind that supposedly is only good for a month or so.  I had thought I'd be getting a pack of dry salted casings where I could put the unused portion back in salt. ... So are these casings good for 1 month from when you get them, or one month when you crack open the seal on the bag?

Thanks.

I always use salted and not brined casings, but from what I've seen they usually are good for 3-4 months, I've even found one that claims 6 months. If you need to keep them longer I recommend the salted ones.

That was a great right up, do you flip the sausage at any point during smoking?
