summer sausage

  • what is the best way to clean the grease off your summer sausage after smoking it

    @thevillage can you give us a little more information? There shouldn’t be a ton of grease on the outside of your casing after smoking so I am not sure exactly what you are referring too. Could you send pictures? It sounds like maybe you had “fat out” when e you don’t get enough protein extraction and the fat renders out of the product during the smoking process.

  • Ive seen that done as jonathan has said or if you raise the temperature of your smokehouse too fast or start too high. But for the purposes of what your wanting, after you shower them cold or place in a cold bath you can spray them with warm water or run them under a hot water faucet and it should remove any unwanted grease from the casings.

    I’d say 30-45 days still isn’t too long. I wouldn’t go much past 45 though.
    As long as it is still in the original vacuum packaging, and the packaging doesn’t start to expand (gas released from the meat), you should be fine wet aging for quite some time. When you open the package, you should notice pretty quickly if it sat too long and spoiled. The odor will be quite foul and noticeable. So, I’d shoot for the 30-45 day mark, and you should be good with that.
