One third moose sausage

Post by redzed » Sat Dec 21, 2013 03:24

I was given a little over 2kg of very lean ground moose meat. Usually I don't like using meat ground by anyone else, but decided to make something anyway. Added pork butt meat, and a bit of back fat and made a total of 6kg of sausage. Used the basic ingredients for Polish kielbasa (pepper, garlic, marjoram), but spiked it with extra garlic and hot chili powder. Turned out quite good. Too bad it's not exactly beer season, because it's a perfect pairing. :lol:

Yeah, but it is just so much smoother, like iced honey on the throat, on those long warm summer days. :lol: Now I prefer a nice wine, and can't think of a pairing for this sausage. :shock:

They look sensational Redzed. What a lovely colour!
How do you achieve this? Is it the choice of meat?
It IS beer season here. I've got the last batch bubbling away< ready for the long hot summer.
What a pity we can't teleport yet!

How about zinfandel, Red? But why not just crank up the heat and crack open a Moosehead to go with your moose sausage? They look fantastic.

Cheers,

Ursula, the dark red colour comes from the very lean moose meat and I smoked it with a mixture of hickory and cherry. The latter usually results in that dark red colour.

Jeff you are right. I can drink a Cali Zin with anything. :grin: And the Moosehead beer is a good idea, although Canadian, that beer is more popular in the US than here.

Bratwurst for the multitude- - enough for five grandchildren, to last maybe fifteen minutes max.

...shown here under heavy guard, ready to chill and dry (assuming the weather improves a bit) before coming down the smoker chimney with care.

Duckie, what is going on? Rations? Hard times? Some new diet? Creeping vegetarianism?

That minuscule bowl of sausages for five grandchildren? And at Christmas time?

Fifteen minutes, one dozen sausages, kids 4/5/7/7/18(and on a perpetual diet). By my count, that leaves maybe a couple "for quality control."

...but I've been wrong before! (Once, I think.)

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it probably needs more time on the grill! :D

Wow! What beginner wouldn't want an uncle like that. By the looks of the parka he must live in central or eastern Canada - we don't have frigid temps out here in the sunny west :cool:
