I'm a newcomer to home salami making and want to
try my hand at it. What is CALCIUM CHLORIDE?
Where can I get it?

We love making sausages. It all started about 18 years ago when we wanted duplicate sausages from the various regions of Thailand.

We're over in Alamo about an hour plus from you!

Where do you buy the casings, especially the sheep/lamb casings?

This looks like a very good web site. I am getting really excited about making my own sausages. I have acquired several deer and I am interrested in making venison sausages. I will try the recipies as they are printed first, then if I like the finished product, I will substitute the venison. I have viewed several web sites over the last few days and this one is the best that I have found.

Great site. I have always wanted to make my own sausage. As a child all the families around Crossville, TN used to get together and slaughter hogs and make whole hog sausage. I have never been able to duplicate that wonderful taste. Maybe now...

G'day Len. great site, I am a retired butcher fed up with buying inedible sausage from stores so decided to produce my own, commercial sausage is totally different to home made, so I had to change my mindse t no problem.It would be helpfull to have a printer friendly option for your site, my only complaint. cheers Tom

The BEST sausage web site I've ever seen. Superbly organized and detailed information, complimented with excellent web organization and graphics. A real materpiece, keep up the excellent work.
PS, I noticed that you have a Bradley smoker, as I do. I cannot get mine to cold smoke. Even with the main heating element off, the temp dial reads near 150F. Any thoughts?

I love your site, the best by far on the net, it is like sausage U but is there any way that we can read the answers to the questions posted on the guestbook? Seems to me that this would make a great FAQ reference and avoid repetition, maintaining this "GREAT" site has to take a good chunk of time as it is.

Your Web site on this subject is excellent.
I found it very helpful.
I am a qualified Chef but have never made my own cured meat products.
As I always thought it was too dangerous, and in fact here in Melbourne,Australia there have been deaths from badly handled commercial sausage production that have caused new laws to be introduced, and now we have a system called HAACP.
Anyway if I can get a "Walk In" set up I would give it a go.
P.S. you look like someone who enjoys sausages!
Regards Jim.

I really enjoy reading about your sausage making experiences. I have made several types of fresh sausages, and look forward to making some dried varieties. As I live in Portland, OR, we lack the humidity to dry sausages in my crawlspace. I'll have to invest in a refrigerator and some type of hydrating device.
Keep up the good work.

Dear Mr. Poli,

Excellent web-site and your recipes are gems. Thanks for providing know how that has been kept by others as trade secrets or within the family for generations. I am a Greek Cypriot and two cured type prepared meats we have on the island are the Cypriot pork Sausage called 'loukaniko' and pork loin cured called 'Lountza'. Both are marinated in wine, some leave them in wines for days other for more that a week, others pre-cure and then add to wine, others add to wine/brine mixture from day 1. Typical spices are salt, pepper, corriander and we never use preservatives such as nirates or nitrites etc. You will not find these receipes anywhere. Cypriots prepare most cured meats in the winter period when the low temparatures reduce spoliage. Both are typically smoked using shrubs and branches/leaves from the local mediterranean flora. But the wine is key.

Once again thanks and please continue with your invaluable info. like the latest humidity control article.

I, too, have developed a few of my own recipes and would be glad to share them if you are interested.

I love to hunt and shoot deer and I can cook deer meat in many many ways, but I've never figured out how to make sausage!
110Sun Dec 12 2004 12:21Karl Lauten kplauten@sasktel.net
Hi Len,
Thanks for the great information and backgrounds on sausage making. After decades of disappointment with retail sausage and the stuff local butchers returned to me I have started making my own sausage, beginning with my lifelong favorite: summer sausage. My first batch was good, second great, and third batch just completed is fantastic, schmecks gut! It really is a rewarding hobby, fun, and turns out a product that is far tastier and leaner than anything butchers have returned to me. I also know that my deer and elk meat is truly mine and is as clean and fresh as I want it to be. Thanks for the recipes and advice as it was very helpful in the technical aspects and it provided the encouragement and confidence to actually try it. Had I known it could be done I would have been making my own sausage for decades..............karl

Great website Len! My father-in-law introduced me to making homemade sausage with his buddies and I fell in love with it. I bought two old fashion meat grinders (each has different grinder blades...and they only cost $8/piece so what the hell) from an antique store and I am digging into some of your recipes this Saturday. Thanks for the info and I will let you know how it goes. Also hope to maybe post something unique to your website in the future.

Thanks for your very informative site. You have given me the inspiration (and simple easy to understand recipes and processes) to have a go at making and enjoying my favorite things. Salami, bread and wine. Enjoy.
You would't have a simple plan for a smoke-chamber/incubator would you? Regards.

Your sight is awesome! While I don't agree with everything (this is quality Italian cooking, where's the fun in conformity?) I think your sight is vital to our ability as people to enjoy this wonderful tradition.

My family will be made aware of your sight, and may'be we'll be joining your webring.

Here's our handy work: Salame Calibrese and my Habanero Diavolo Mix!

Note: The plastic bags are because my mix will cause skin irritation.

I like the detail you've made available for all types of sausage making. I'm curently only working with fresh sausage recipes. Perhaps cured sausages are in my future. And when that happens, I intend to study your site carefully.

Hi Len,

Thank you very much for responding to my enquiry and request for your opinion on sausage grinders/stuffers. I believe that even my little KithenAid sausage grinder will grind meats satisfactorily if I keep the meat very cold (so I don't want to blame the grinder for operator ineffectiveness). I believe that I will be better off if I buy a decent sausage stuffer (keeping in mind your well-mentioned issues of flexibility). It seems that if I buy a well built stuffer with flexibility in tube size (say, up to one and one quarter inch) I'd be able to make pepperoni, summer and brats, filling natural and artificial casings. Any advice on stuffers (I see you use a horizontal one)?. You have a great website, and I thank you in advance for any advice and wisdom you may throw my way.

Thanks again,

Bob Parson

My family have been making Italian sausage and Kielbassa for the past 35 years in a small meat market. We no longer have the market. I started making sausages about 5 years ago as a hobby. I now make about 30 different types of sausages. Your web site is the best informative web site I have found on sausage making. It has helped me so much. Thank you for all your info. I like to try different recipes. Your information and knowledge has made it so much easier for me. Thank you again.

I tried making salami from a homemade family recipe and I had a major problem. My salami was hollow in the middle (or mostly hollow) and brown in color--only the outer edge of the salami was red. What am I doing wrong? Can you please e-mail me and tell me? I had to throw 6 salami in the garbage after all that work.

Nice work! You've created quite a resource for aspiring sausage makers. I like your recipe list, and the .pdf file format. Thanks for all your hard work!

I used to make fresh Italian Sausage with my father. Dad would give it away at Christmas time and everybody raved about it. I stumbled onto your website a few months ago and my interest was renewed. Yeaterday I cloned some Brats and Breakfast Sausage using you recipes. When I laid out samples for tasting, everybody was raving. The apple didn't fall far from the tree. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and helping me revive an old family tradition.

Dear Lenn

I wish to congratulate you on your website , it is truly a marvel that amateurs like me are able to find such an in-depth technical support as well as practical hints on the subject

I'm sending you my bests wishes from Argentina for your future endeavors ; last but not least be ready for tons of questions ( I?m sorry but I couldn't help being honest with you ) on the art of sausage making ,particularly on hot dogs which have fell into disrepute in Argentina , ( don't ask me why )

Hang in there with your website กกก and good luck

Len, Many thanks for providing such a wealth of information! Recently I have had the opportunity of purchasing the trimmings of commercial boiled ham from a local ham and longanisa factory. What are your thoughts on making some sausage with these? The ham by itself is delicious but the price is very low and I'm looking for a use for this product. It is of course completely cured and is just the offcuts from hams which are shaped to fit into Poly bags. Yours thoughts and/or is\deas would be much appreciated. My wife (a Filipina) and I retired way back in 2003 I'm now 67 and we keep goats and make our own cheese and have a couple of small farms. Regards, Bill.
