Here is the result of my hog being processed today. Lots of pork chops and 200lbs of polish sausage I hope you all enjoy the photos . I had a blast helping today . Many Many thanks to Jerry's Slaughter House in Athens, AL. I am certain that this polish sausage is better than anything you ever bought in a store. These photos should be self explanatory . If you have questions I will be glad to answer any and all of em if i can . Enjoy YALL!!!!!!!!!! By the way Jerry is a member of the forum his handle is MEATMAN1127 . He would be more active if her were not making these fine sausages and wonderful cuts of meat.

    Thanks HOSS , Jerry is the man around here as far as sausage goes . He is the coolest guy you could ever meet.We plan on hitting a few fests as soon as he gets free to do so . I think with his sausages and egg know how , we just might be able to win a ribbon or two lol. This aint a shameless plug for his slaughter house but merely a homage to the hard work and years of trial and error that went into making GOOD EATS!!!!!

    That pic of the 4 layers of cheese /3 layers of pork on the grinder blew my mind , thats 60lbs of cheese and 5lbs of dried jalapenos.... FIVE LBS OF JALAPENO'S!!!!!!!!! must I say it again... This sausage is AWESOME!!!!, He is gonna cook it on his industrial smoker with hickory , I plan on helping vacuum pack it tomorrow and sample some of it when it first comes off the smoker.

    OMG!!! I think I've died and gone to Heaven!!!!! I wish I were YOU!!! :)

    Hoss , I think folks are really missing out on this post, there is a lot of hard work and a lot of money that goes into making sausages like this. I can honestly say that if this were 6dollars per lb I would be glad to pay it . It took us 12 hrs to make all of this goodness.

    Great a well used meat area for processing the flesh of dead animals.
    No cross contamination worries go for it...
    Love it. The weaker stomachs that are aboard will screech and holler but that is the way things are in the meat processing world. Behind cooler doors.
    Great pictures of how it is.
  • FABulous post! Thanks for the great pics!

    Holy Toledo! that's some butchering. And OMGoodness that's a bunch of sausage.

    Wish I could find a butcher shop close by. I stop to see the the one I thought I had found but they stop retail and only cut up specific orders, sorta I guess what you had done.

    I've got to give in and drive the 40+ miles to Catlett, VA and Wilson Farms who run a butcher/retail operation.

  • That is a lot of meat

    Tony and Jerry came by the restaurant and brought me some of the cheese and pepper sausage and it was KILLER!! The cheese and spice were such a great mixture it was truly the best sausage I have ever had. Plus two great guys to spend some time with. Like I told Tony and Jerry I have not met an egghead yet that I haven't liked!!!! Hoss
