Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

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.
