well after a long day of house work and going to the shooting range to get ready for deer season coming up the weekend after the fest. i got to my sausage making.what i ended up doing is cut up a bunch of pork belly unsalted and unsmoked i added this to the moose and a few cups of the bomba sauce salt and pepper. so i set up the stuffer with the grinder plate so it would grind up the pork a bit more and help blend the stuff together.used 12 pounds of moose and 5 cups of bomba ,one pound of pork belly. so i hope this will be enough to go around at the fest.here is a bunch of pics of the process. now all i need to do is pull it out of the fridge and seal up and freeze.
here is what i started with but notice the ground pork...well i decided at the last minute not to use it!

    How much?

  • mikeb6109mikeb6109 Posts: 2,067
    beggars are normally not choosy....so i should be good with a bottle or 2. could serve it as a dipping sauce and get everyone hooked on it before it even hits the market!! but can also do without,you be the judge. will we be seeing you on the thurday night?
