Re: How NOT to make hotdogs

Other than knackwurst, I haven't seen a recipe or am unfamiliar with the traditional "wiener" that is predominantly pork In Marianski's "The Greatest Sausage Recipes" they have a wiener recipe that is only 20% lean beef and the rest is pork semi-fat, back fat and belly or jowl.

Re: 100% beef fresh sausage?

I'm not a fan of all beef sausage but this topic piqued my curiosity. The Marianski's kosher Beef Sausage calls out for "beef fat (suet)" Then other recipes call for "beef with connective tissue" and any type of beef trimmings, like in their Polish Beef Sausage.

Re: Adding zingy brightness without acid for fresh sausages

I've had good luck with lemon extract in some bratwurst and wieswurst recipes, and I never noticed anything different with he farce. What percentage did you use for the extract? Last batch I made had 4.5gm per Kg and it was very pronounced but close to what I wanted.

Re: Bowl Cutter

Great advice from Scogar, and let me add to search Marketplace and Craigslist. I picked mine on Craigslist for $200, cleaned it up, sourced a drive belt and added new cutter blades and it works great. I watch local auction sites which always have stuff I'd want, but there is a lot more competition I...

I wish I did something creative, sausage wise, I'd be all over this. But I just turn out stuff that uses standard methods. Looking forward to what get's turned in though.
