I’m new to meatgistics
I have a question for Austin
I noticed on your finished chicken brats that the ends where open
Do you tie them? Or just cut to length?
And what length?
Thanks for all the great information you provide!
I usually twist link, and then cut the links. I have tried tying sausage before, but it is a little too time consuming for my liking.
If you just twist link and cut, the ends may open up a bit as you cook.
For length, I just try to make them about bun length, so they fit as good as possible, something about 6 inches.
Hey y’all checking in from Greensboro, NC. I have been making kielbasa and summer sausage for about 24 years and smoking of course. Just built a curing chamber and am always looking for new things to make! Canning ,pickling, curing, smoking, you name it!
Thanks for all the help. I am very pleased with the products. I had a source I used for years that went out of business. Glad I have found you guys wish I had found you a long time ago.
@Tim-Salois Yes, brining and pickling are used in the same way even though they do not mean the same thing even though they have slightly different actual definitions.
@lamurscrappy thanks for all the help. I will let you know how the next batch turns out.
@scottwaltner i personally think we found your problem. After the ice bath you need to hang them at room temp for at least an hour. That helps to bloom the product and help set the casing as well. I think thats your issue.
