:grin: My first Kabanosy turned out great! I am trying to add a picture but I've never done this before. Well I guess its not gonna work. The weather here was was just right for curing temps down in the low 30's at night and 40's in the day. I was able to hold the sausage at 60 degrees for 7 days and ended up with a 52% yield. If I can ever learn how to post a picture I have allot of pic's of my smoker build I'd like to share it works great and I am proud of it. Trosky

Congratulations on your kabanosy's success. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Unfortunately I can't explain how to post a picture because I use "Fotosik.pl " not Imageshack.

Is it in Fahrenheit ?( we use Celsius scale ) so I think you ought to have air temperature about 20 st C ( 68 st F) .Can I be wrong or I did not understand this sentence :oops:

Way to go Trosky! I'm glad it turned out well for you. Uh... don't you think you ought to have Chudziak and me "test" it for you? ha ha :wink:
Kabanosy is one of those meat products that you just can't get enough of. Pretty soon it will be time to make some more. How are you with jerky?
When you get ready for bio cultures and dry-cured salami and pepperoni, let me know and I'll help you through the process all I can.
Best wishes, Chuckwagon

Chuckwagon you and Chudziak should test it come on over anytime. I posted a pic in hyde park. I made jerky once it was OK but I didn't like the recipe I used, it was a honey and something I don't remember. I do want to get in to bio cultures and dry-cured salami. I'll have to wait until fall. I don't have a way to hold temps when it warm out. If there's another way to do it let me know and I'll give it a shot. Trosky

But Vilnus isn't in Poland :sad: but throughout history Vilus belonged to the Poland for a period of time .After The Second World War Vilnius belonged to the USSR and since 1991 is the capital of independent Lithuania. ( It's only about 650 km from me )

I just printed the recipe for Kabanosy and am ready to give it a go.

I finished a pancetta that may be ready to try this weekend so I am up for another test.

I am curious as to the differences in salami's that use products as Bactoferm and this Kabanosy. Is it not really like a salami?

Dave zac did you make the Kabanosy if so how's it coming along. As far as I know Kabanosy is a semi dry cured sausage curing stops when you heat it to 152 f and salami is a fermented sausage that can take months to cure without cooking it. Chuckwagon knows allot about salamis ask him.

I have not yet made it. My Pancetta is still drying. We were very humid here last week (80%) so I only lost a few ounces in a week. Back down to 70% humidity so I hope one more week and it will have lost 25% of it's original weight.

I did a bit of research on fermented sausages. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Kabanosy ferments in the 72 hour refrigeration stage; whereas a Bactoferm reduces that to one day of so.

I'll keep you posted.
