How to Make Homemade Summer Sausage - Recipe
Also, for those that don’t have the money to spend on a mixer I used a drywall mud mixer connected to a drill to mix 25 lbs of grind in a 5 gallon bucket and it worked great. $10 solution.
Going to make a smaller batch of the Tons flavor summer sausage. Want to double check my math as all of the conversions are not in the chart.
All of these numbers are per lb of meat block:
1 Tbls seasoning
1.134 grams sure cure
4.5 grams carrot fiber
2 to 2.5 oz water
2.268 grams smoked meat stabilizer
BrianB Ton’s isn’t on the list because it is only available in 100 lb units so I dont know the volume on it.
Ton’s 0.6 oz per lb
Your sure cure is correct
Carrot fiber is correct
I prefer using 2 to 2.5 lb of water per 25 lb of meat, so that would be 1.28 oz of water. However, with carrot fiber 2 oz of water per lb would be fine. Might take a little longer to cook.
Smoked meat stabilizer correct as well!
Jonathon tons is on there but the carrot fiber is not. I ended up finding it somewhere else and doing the math. It seemed like a lot of carrot fiber. We will find out tomorrow.
BrianB Yes, 2.25 oz of carrot fiber is a lot more than you would expect it to be as that stuff is so light and airy!
Jonathon, in your Summer Sausage video you put both carrot fiber and ECA in the mix. I know the ECA is to give the tang to the meat but doesn’t it also act as a cure accelerator? Was the carrot fiber also needed to smoke the meat right from the stuffer?
Please disregard my last post; I have never used carrot fiber and I had it in my head that it was a cure accelerator not a binder.
