Doug Kapfenstein There really isn’t much more to it than what you just said, you’re dead on there! Salami CAN be a little different depending on what you want. If you want really good particle definition then I would grind your fat and lean separate and then mix them together. If you don’t care about particle definition then the only difference between salami and summer sausage is the seasoning and maybe the casing you use!
Either way, I’d follow this process https://meatgistics.waltonsinc.com/topic/619/how-to-make-homemade-salami but if you aren’t looking for particle definition and you are comfortable enough making summer sausage without a step by step process to refer to then you can make Salami!
