Last year a friend and I raised a few hogs, which we sent to slaughter, and have been living off. It's the best pork I've ever eaten, and I'm glad I did it.

Thing is, I've been lazy, so I've yet to make bacon, sausage, or smoke a ham. Until today.

I've got two slabs of belly salted, and curing. They'll be going in the smoker Friday. Gonna straight smoke em in apple with a bit of hickory.

Picked up a sausage stuffer at Bass Pro today, too. I like the idea of making Brauts, and some summer sausage, but doubt I'll make any breakfast sausages.

I want to make some country style sausage. Anyone got any good recipe ideas?

Also, it's starting all over again. We're getting another 6 pigs this week. Oh yeah!! :D

It's different, isn't it? Way firmer than those floppy, supermarket pork chops. Great way to get your prosciutto, too.

My favourite sausage recipe has always been a simple, Tuscan style sausage: salt, pepper, coriander seed, and fennel seed. I am sorry I don't have my book with me to give you the ratios.

The spice kits I've tried have always been a disappointment in one way or another: too spicy, strange flavours, poor consistency. Far better to grab a good recipe book and have at it.

There are literally hundreds of web sites devoted to sausage making. I  saved a half dozen good recipes, after lots of experimenting and adaptation. Ever since my stuffer crapped out a long time ago, we just have sausage patties at our house. I think they taste the same.

I don't hunt until after noon.

If a man says something in the forest and no woman hears him, is he still wrong?
