10 pounds of Andouille for future meals (With an example)
« on: November 04, 2014, 08:38:54 am »
Everything all mixed together



All stuffed into links and coils



Loaded into the smoker



After the smoke



Hanging to bloom


Money Shot



All packaged up for the freezer. All packages are right around 3/4's of a pound



One of the packages didn't seal quite right soooooo. Hearty White Bean and Sausage Soup it is!!



SOUPS ON!!!!!!

If you would like to make the soup. They used Conecuh sausage in the testing of the recipe. So any smoked sausage should work just fine.

Tim,
 Yes the white parts are fats. I trim the meat into 1 inch chunks, season for 3 days then grind through 10 mm plate and stuff

My grandfather always told us to season the chunks and let sit before grinding. Like you did. He worked later in life at a local butchers shop so I guess he learned that there. It does make sense because when it does get ground the spices get mixed in better. So that is how we always did it. He also loved the course grind like is common with andouille but us kids did not care for the bigger chunks of fat. So when the kids made the sausage we would grind the lean meats course and the fatty meat fine. I still do that with Kielbasa but when doing my venison smoked sausage I grind it all smaller.

I have a Bradley smoker. I'm making Summer Sausage. The recipe I have does not tell me how long to smoke the sausage. Anyone know how long for 25lbs ?

Hi and welcome.  Try to search for summer sausage on this site, there will be smoking and cooking suggestions.  Good luck.

That soup looks fabulous, I'll have to try that recipe.

it is going to take a while in the Bradley.  I would break it into 2 batches of 12 pounds and smoke as follows
1 hour @ 130
1 hour @ 140 Start 2:40 minutes of smoke
1 hour @ 150
1 hour @ 160
170 until IT of 153 is reached
Then plunge into ice water until IT of 100 then hang at room temp for 2 hours then fridge overnight
