Anyone every made salami?

I found a recipe. http://www.meatprocessingproducts.com/salami-recipe.html
 Looks easy.  Thoughts on how it might turn out?  How would you Eggify it?  (I don't see Eggify in the Eggicionary.  Do I get a credit for a new word?)

    That's a faux salami. 

    Traditionally salami is not cooked.  It's fermented and cured, sometimes as long as years, and can be further treated with a mold (like penicillin) on the casing.

    So it likely will not taste like hard salami I get at the deli?  Would this be considered Summer Sausage then?  Or is that simply a different recipe?

    Summer sausage is kind of a generic term for sausage that doesn't need refrigeration - it too is usually cured or fermented. 

    I have no idea how that sausage would taste, it's probably really good, most home made sausages are.  But when I think of salami, I think of cured, uncooked sausage.
