Re: Spanish Fuet - Unsure if this turned out right

Re: Busy week/weekend sausage/meat making!

They look excellent, is the "purty" casing much harder to peel than the standard cylinder...I hate to lose the meat and be forced to nibble on the casing. But I guess the dog is happy as he does get more than his fair share of stuck cellulose and meat That was my concern! When my friend did it he l...

Re: Busy week/weekend sausage/meat making!

Patience is not a strong point for me! I have been checking the large textured summer sausages and they seem very firm by squeezing. Moisture loss is only 20%. My friend tried these casings with a cooked salami and pealing the casing off was a disaster! I figured I would try the driest one and see. ...

Re: How NOT to make hotdogs

Ed, I do think the bowl cutter will make a difference. I don't want to say overheating the meat isn't as big of an issue as it really is, but temp was the one issue I didn't face. I could se that I should have been able to run the bowl cutter for a significant time with the 3 ice charges. That woul...

Re: How NOT to make hotdogs

So Fatboyz do you run separate batches of the venison, pork, and back fat, i.e., for 16 pounds making two V, P, BF blended batches that are subsequently combined? Or do you run let's say the venison through first toss it into a lug and then run the pork and backfat together and toss this into the l...

Re: How NOT to make hotdogs

I have a 14" OLD Hobart and I run about 8-9 pounds through it at a time. I then just dump all the batches into a lug and give them a quick hand mix to combine the batches. Wet your hands or use nitrile gloves. THe batter is like real sticky pudding. Temp wise you can take it up to 11 or 12C without ...

Re: WD Daily Chat - Talk about anything You Like

Hey Red I had Krakauer (which I believe is basically the German variation of Krakowska) on my list of to do’s. I may make it a this weekend and work on a few techniques. I imagine your white sausage is a variation of German wiesswurst, Which I have to admit doesn’t look overly appetizing. :lol: :lo...

Re: THE GREAT SAUSAGE CONTEST!

The 20 and 25 days was around food safety timing not how long it would actually take to dry. This goes back to your original question about the salami on a pizza.
