if the sausage is stuffed you can add the eca it will not activate until 130 degrees ? and will be fine to use but if holding it overnight it is not needed as the cure in the sausage will have time to work
Dr_Pain Gnocchi was used as a vehicle for the week as I grew up with many Italian immigrants. It all started on Thursday and they kept adding something cheap each day. On Friday, they would add fish caught on that day. Saturday would be meat scraps day (modern term i believe is awful). That’s where the dishes separated from making it in a pan or baked in the oven. The gnocchi up north would use parmesano regiano in the making of it because it was local. But, I can’t put my finger on a name for the dish.
I just love that story. A story of usage and necessity is found in many cultures. Down here they use to have Red Beans and Rice on Mondays because it was laundry day and they would use the starch from cooking the rice to starch their clothes (that’s before we added just the right amount of water to be absorbed by the rice)
@jonathon that is interesting & in some ways, I am not surprised. But Jee, was I one of the only few hailing from Alabama these days? I wish I could do something to improve that because the potential really is there. On the other hand, there are just so many more folks in Texas now & so much potential. Alaska has a lot of potential too, but not the numbers. Interesting.
@herbcofood agreed plus you could add the cooking aspect to it if the teacher pre prepped some
Sausages and had them ready to cook after everyone makes their own. Sausages can be a tricky think to cook correctly. It could be similar to what ATBBQ does in Wichita with cooking classes but a step further.
@jonathon The numbers from Texas should be the reason for Walton's to open a retail store in Houston. I would be honored to run it for you.
Imagine the business, the in person classes. The list could go on for ever.
I have smoked 27 lbs of venison summer sausage in my PK100. Used the 40 mm x 18 in Collagen Casings. I just put two racks in the top position and ran chop sticks thru the casing loops. Came out fantastic. 😎 I like the smaller 1lb. Tubes because I give them to a lot of friends. They are also about the perfect size for ritz crackers when sliced. I do have some friends that eat these one pounders like they are snack sticks.🤤 I used Waltons Ton Summer Unit seasoning, outstanding.
Gravity Storm if i remember correctly the MSG is only sold in 100lb batches, primarily for commercial uses. And although i have never used it i believe MSG does give a slight better taste. However, some have allergic reactions to MSG
Clarko I use my regular Summer Sausage mixes when making sticks for the little tykes, adding about half the recommended amount of cheddar cheese. As they get more adventurous, add more spice. Trust is what we develop
