The chipotle sausage was a winner
could have stood a bit more of everything, but still damn fine.

do it! Only £25 and it’s good fun, takes a bit of time and effort (like brewing) and sometimes it goes a bit wrong (like brewing), but even when it’s bad it’s good (like brewing)

the only thing that’s not like brewing is that it generally works out more expensive than shop bought



BUT still far better👍

Been at the sausage maker again this weekend

garlic, herb and red wine this time, bloody lovely too. Rosemary, sage and thyme from the garden, as was the garlic in fact. With veggie kebabs and spuds slices with butter garlic and more herbs.

Here, but I subbed a fair amount of things (red wine for white, fresh garlic for dried and fresh herbs for dried, plus pork for boar).

https://honest-food.net/wild-game/wild-pig-recipes/wild-boar-charcuterie/herbed-wild-boar-sausages/

there are loads Of great sausage recipes on this site even if the guy is a bit mad for venison and boar (presumably that he shoots himself)

i added supaphos as well which really does make a difference to the meatiness and juiciness

I have literally no idea how I missed this thread. My wife gets worried when I find something new like this!

Anyone tried beef? There are very few places you can find a gluten free beef sausage. Breaks my heart every fry up 😭

not yet! You’d probably need to add pork fat to beef to make a decent sausage. I’ve done lamb merguez and even that was a bit dry, though I didn’t use supaphos in those. It would have helped a lot.

Would not beef or lamb suet be a better choice than pork fat in those bangers? (Edit- appears not, but beef dripping is sms choice)

This is something I'd love to get more involved in, along with smoking meats, charcuterie and cheese making - the art is in getting the equipment bought and past the attention if the wife tho 😂
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]

Not sure, most non pork recipes I’ve seen that need added fat always call for pork fat. Suspect it renders better or something. I don’t go in for the science!
pork makes the best bangers anyway though I wouldn’t mind giving venison a go - but no one else in my house likes it!

I've smoked meat before many years ago...  its really good,  you only need a few bits to do it on a small scale, i used a old wok..  soaked the meat in salt water (brine) and then just used some BBQ wood chips on a stove, although i had to start doing it outside on a camping stove because i stunk the house out...  😂

as usual i have pictures!

That looks awesome! I'm going to buy myself a new bbq for my birthday, I want one with both gas and charcoal, and ideally a smoker too but I can't find one with all three (that doesn't cost £800!)

Yeah, those smoked meats look great, Alco. Do you have a problem with the skin on the chicken? I have access to a pretty good selection of Texas bbq here, but one thing I don't usually get is the smoked chicken because the skin goes tough.
