    kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp
    fennel seeds
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp
    ground black pepper
  • 1
    head of minced garlic
  • 1 tsp
    cayenne pepper
  • 1 c
    minced parsley

  • 3 ml

How to Make Super Sausage Building


  1. Disinfect your knives, cutting boards, and other equipment, and wash your hands. If you purchased a pork shoulder chop (with bone), bone the meat with your boning knife. If not, proceed to the next step
  2. Cut your meat into even cubes and cut away large pieces of connective tissue
  3. Slowly and evenly work your cubed meat into your grinder with a pusher
  4. Cool the ground meat by sticking it in the freezer (up to one hour). Continue on to the next step immediately
  5. Blend your spices together, adding additional spices as needed for taste
  6. Add 1/2 cup of ice water to the spice mixture and take the ground meat out of the freezer
  7. Pour the spice mixture into the ground meat, mixing thoroughly with your hands
  8. Take a small portion of your mixed meat and make a 3" patty, press into palm. Slowly flip your hand over so meat is facing down. If the meat stays for 5+ seconds you are done mixing. If it doesn't stick, continue to knead the mix, using the palm test every 15 seconds
  9. Put your casings in a large bowl and place under cold running water. Let sit for 2 minutes
  10. Take your stuffer out of the freezer
  11. Slide one of your casings onto the stuffer nozzle. Leave a 6" overhang untied
  12. Make sure the casing is filled firmly, but do not overstuff! It will tighten when you twist the casings to make the links
  13. Stuff your mixed meat into the stuffer slowly but firmly. (It helps to have a partner for this step.) Air will come out into the casing before the meat. Use one hand to hold onto the casings, regulating how quickly they slip off the tube
  14. When you've run out of casing, or you are finished stuffing, tie one end of the casing, making a knot flush with the meat
  15. Starting 6" from the knot, pinch off a 6" length. Twist 3 times in one direction. Go forward another 6", rotate 3 times in the opposite direction. Repeat this process until you cannot make another 6" sausage
  16. Squeeze out the extra meat and tie off the casing. Then prick each link three times with a toothpick to prevent bursting
  17. Lay your links out on a baking sheet and chill in the refrigerator uncovered for 12-15 hours to dry the casings
  18. When chilling is done, cut the casing between the links and you have sausage links ready to cook
  19. Refrigerate up to 3 days. Freeze for up to 3 months
