For anyone looking for Len Poli's sausage site, it's had a new address. The ones listed above are for the old site that hasn't existed for a few years. The new one is: http://lpoli.50webs.com/index.htm

Also another good site is: http://www.dakotahsausagestuff...e-recipes-s/1980.htm

They also have some recipes for jerky: http://www.dakotahsausagestuff...y-recipes-s/1982.htm

and snack sticks: https://www.dakotahsausagestuf.../Articles.asp?ID=362
I have been stumbling around trying to figure out what I am doing wrong with my Summer Sausage. I ran across this place by accident. They are local to me, and I called them. This is a mom and pop operation. They were very helpful with looking at the sausage I made, and telling me what I did wrong. They know their products, and have good prices. Everything from Forschner and Victorinox knives to bulk spices. to Newly wed and Witt's seasoning kits. Their web site does not show any of this so you will have to call or email.

And FWIW the above links have all you'll ever need to make your own stuff, some even have forums to help.

Have you looked through the links, did you see something missing? Are you a beginning wanting to start or are you wanting more advanced info? What do you want to make?


Don't remember the book maybe someone will jump in, but it would have been posted or moved to the forum.

If you want to discuss the specifics, start a new thread and maybe we can point you there.
Many years ago I learned sausage making from a book called "Home Sausage Making" by Charles Reavis. Don't know if it is still in print (my copy says 1981) but it has a great introduction to the basics, dealing with natural casings, stuffing, etc., and has a lot of great recipes. If you can find it, it is a classic.
found that page, had to go back in my browsing history
Good thing for browser history, it was a cookshack post from 2005 here

I'm gonna dive into sausage making and I figured a book is a good place to start. I will check out Jay1924's recommendation and I'll get the one from dakotah sausage stuffers.
Oh, and we will need some great casings for our sausages. My favorite place is Syracuse Casing Company http://www.makincasing.com/.

They claim to be the ONLY American company that processes their own casings. I'm still working on the 3 hanks of 35-37mm hog casings and the 50 strands of 21mm mahogany collagen casings I ordered last year. Oh, by the way, looks like they've began free shipping on all orders.

Best prices from what I can tell too. Also, if their claim is true about being exclusively the only company in America that processes their own casings, that means All other companies either buy from them, or get their overseas - the latter which troubles me a bit, as I'm not sure that I really trust imported meat products.
