Derek_D It is all personal preference, I’d be interested to see which one you prefer though!
High temp cheese
At what point do you put the high temp cheddar cheese in the sausage mix, before grinding or after grinding?
Robert Tartaglia You will want to put the Hi-Temp cheese in after grinding and at the very end of mixing. So if you grind everything first and then add your seasonings and cures (if needed) then get everything all mixed into the meat, the correct level of protein extraction and then add your Cheese for the last minute or so, just to get it evenly distributed throughout the meat. If you added seasoning between grinds then I would still do the same you just would have to mix a little bit less.
The grinding would smear the cheese and the point of using hi-temp is for it to retain at least some of its original form.
Let me know if you need anything else!
