  1. Grind semi-fat pork with 1/4” (6-8 mm) plate.
  2. Grind pork with connective tissue with 1/8” (3 mm) plate.
  3. Using food processor emulsify pork with connective tissue adding 20-25% (40 ml, 1.41 oz fl) cold water. Add cure #1 and spices during this step.
  4. Mix semi-fat pork adding salt until sticky. Add emulsified meat and mix all together.
  5. Stuff firmly into 32-36 mm hog casings. Form 25-30 cm (12-14”) links leaving them in a continuous coil. Hang for 60 min at room temperature (optional step, but recommended).
  6. Cook in water at 72-75° C (160-167° F) until sausages reach 68-70° C (154-158° F) internal temperature.
  7. Cool for 15 minutes in cold water. The sausage is ready to eat.
  8. Hang for 15 min in a warm smokehouse, then apply cold smoke for 12 hours. This drying/smoking step was performed in the past to remove more moisture so the sausage could have been kept at room temperature.
