Very skillfully done. ROZ (Iwanago) requires that all her hot dogs, sausage's are all beef.  I have never made sausage before.  I could google recipe's but I am curious about your spices and liquids.

Paul, I would love to make this an open sausage chat for everyone to post their sausage and hot dog making ideas. Maybe change the name of the post to "open sausage chat" we have members from around the USA with some great ideas, I'm sure we would both like to see how they do it. Next on my list is Italian sausage and Brats...........What do you think ?????
Now for the spices........I used 4 cloves of garlic minced, 1 tblsp Smoked Paprika, 1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper, 1 1/2 tblsp Kosher salt, 1 tblsp grd mustard, 1 tsp gnd coriander, 1/2 tsp blk pepper........about 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups of ice cold water.................the emulsion is like making a hot dog. I used water because I wanted to see how the spices tasted in the sausage. Tell Roz, the test patty I made would have been great as a beef country sausage, the aroma was fantastic, the taste was great. I will make more mix next time to make some country sausage to form and freeze, it's well worth it if she only uses beef. The short ribs also worked out well, I just cut them off the bone, used all the meat and fat. These short ribs are coming off my blk angus steer that was hung for 26 days, even the meat is nicely marbled. I will use the bones for a homemade beef stock.................

Thx Lisa, I see Michael is going in to get some broken parts replaced. Did you know he was broken when you married him??????.......I heard there is a good hospital in Ohio, it offers Hip replacement and anger management classes at the same time, you could kill two birds with one stone. In this case it more like a bolder.............Bill

Oh, I knew he was broken, that's why I married him.  If ever I decided to flee back to Alaska he wouldn't be able to catch me.

We can't both be in the hospital at the same time, so Lisa will have to wait to get her anger management treatments.

Arrangements have been made. But not for Chicago style hotdogs. I had one once. That'll last me a lifetime. If I had to eat one more of those things my lifetime wouldn't last till the end of the hotdog.

Michael...  Wishing you no pain and easy, quick healing.
 
Lisa...  Wishing you an easy patient.
 
Bill...  How do you make the knots between the sausages?  Or, do you just twist them hoping they won't unwind?  Are your dishes Fiesta?

Hi Mar, The cobolt blue plate were from Pier 1, I got them years ago. We use to have a Southwester theme in one of our accounts. I use to have three different sets of plates for Corp lunches and brunches. Our home is Mexican Southwest theme, so it works in our home also.
 
When you start making the sausage you tie a knot in the casing, if everything goes well with no breaks, you tie a knot at the end. You then pinch and twist the length of sausage you like. If you twist about 4 or 5 times it will stay. I then prick the sausage, let the sausage bloom, this sets up the sausage, at this point I can cut and they stay perfect. 
I am going to apple smoke a few of these this afternoon. I figure on smoking for about 20 minutes to a half hr then grill until down with a nice char...............will see .........catch ya later gator.......................Bill

Chewy, they are calling it hip surgery, between us I have a strange feeling Lisa is having him checked out between the ears. I'm sure after a year of marriage she is wondering what is making her go crazy..........don't tell Michael, he thinks he's going in for a new hip.............

pnwchef,
I am the one going in to be checked out between the ears.  The hip thing is just a cover-up.  He'll be fine.  I, on the other hand, may have to be reloacated to an institution.  Hopefully close to some good Roadfood places.

There's a good place right across the street from G&R Tavern in Waldo, Nurse Ratched.
