The girlfriend and I had a free weekend and decided to replenish our sausage stores. Picked up 42 pounds of pork butt as well as 3 pounds of beef chuck for bratwurst, sheep and hog casing, and spices and got to work. Started off by grinding all of the beef and pork and added 7 pounds of pork to the 3 pounds of beef to make brats, spiced it up and cased it. Next up was sonoran style chorizo, 13 pounds worth, half of it cased, the other half as bulk. Next was 10 pounds of sage and garlic breakfast sausage, about 13 cased. Finished it up with 12 pounds of hot fennel-coriander Italian all as bulk. Took some time but with a couple friends and a few drinks we turned out some damn tasty meat. Through test cooking was my friends' favorite part! All told the sausage came in at $1.93 per pound.
