Ok everyone if you were wondering, yes; I actually did make my first batch of Summer Sausage yesterday! It was a long day. I started at 6:30am and had the SS in the refrigerator for its ‘over-nighter’ at about 9:30pm. Guess I won’t get that ‘speed’ award.
Here’s what I can tell everyone… you were right! Everything that I did at the suggesting of many of you worked out as expected. Yes, I am very pleased with what I was able to get done yesterday. By the way, my smoker upgrade worked CRAZY GOOD!
I got up this morning and decided to ‘sacrifice’ my little ‘chub’ (is that what a stick of SS is known as?). It tastes great! My first go at this appears to have been a success! Thanks for everyones’ help… and especially John for getting me that ‘binder’!
Ok… here are some pics from my day yesterday and up to this morning. I cut all the ‘chubs’ in half now and when I am done with this message, I will go out and seal my SS for freezing.
One last thing before the pics… what you guys FAILED to tell me was that when it comes to the mixing process and getting to ‘High Protein Extraction’, a guy better be ready for a ‘Work Out’! Holy Cow… My arms looked like Popeye’s when I was done.
