Crawfish Sausage!
« on: November 19, 2011, 07:27:09 PM »
Thanks Squirt for your input.  Here is what we came up with:
5 lbs pork butt
4 1/2 t salt
6 T onion flakes
1 t cure #1
1 t garlic granules
5 t finely chopped parsley
2 t crushed thyme leaves
3 t Cayenne pepper
1 1/2 t red pepper flakes
1/2 t allspice
1 small bay leaf, crushed
1/2 t Soileau's seasoning
1 t chipotle powder
1 lb crawfish tails

First, we ground the pork:

Wow - $1.11 per lb

Next we combined our seasonings and chopped up the crawfish:


We added these to the ground pork and mixed it all together:

Stuffed and ready to grill:

We sampled some  - not on the grill.  It has a nice kick to it, and we can't wait to grill some!

Looks great!

Love those 'used pork butt' sales at Schnucks..  (normally like 3.50/lb there)    Didn't realize you had one way up there.

Yes - we have had a Schnucks for about 7 years now.  It is not too far from our house, so we take advantage of those 'out of date pork butts' sales when we see them.

Scott,

So is Soileau's seasoning a type of cajun seasoning or just a seasoning salt of some type?

Lon, they only sell it in small stores here in Central IL.  The family is from Louisiana and they mix it by hand in a small restaurant kitchen.  They drive around and stock the area stores every couple weeks.

It's good stuff.  It also has a serious kick, so a little goes a long way.

If you want to try it, shoot me a PM w/ your address and I can drop a bottle in the mail..

So what is the verdict? they look like you could just stuff yourself til you can't walk. I got the goods from Squirt, so ready to try.

Lon,
It is very tasty, but it is very spicy.  If you don't want a lot of heat, don't use as much cayenne.

Thanks for the heads up, I don't mind the heat but I appreciate the flavors more.  Now I just have to make the time to put everything together.

Thanks,

Lon
