Other sausage makers/grinders?


Recommended Posts

Are there any other members who make their own sausage and grind their own meat?  My wife and I have made our own sausage, loose and cased for a while. We like knowing exactly what is in our sausage, and eating the flesh from fewer total animals. We also grind all our own burger and cure and smoke our own bacon from pork bellies.  Just curious if there are any fellow keto folks here that also roll their own?

maybe he'll chime in

I started making my own sausages a while ago, kind of a hobby. I found some sausage-making influencers on YT, some of which are butchers by trade in Germany. The have lots of recipes and are easy to follow. I bought a big meat grinder and a 15-pound capacity sausage stuffer as well. With those two items, I can make most anything in conjunction with my pellet smoker/grill.

Ingredients? It depends on the sausage really. For a typical German style white bratwurst, it would be 70% pork shoulder and 30% pork belly. The seasonings would be the other ingredients. Some sausages call for binders and there are a lot of options for binders of which I can choose the one(s) that are carnivore friendly.

Some sausages are quite easy to make. Then, when you get into drying and fermentation, it's more advanced. If you don't have a meat grinder or stuffer, you can still 'try out' making your own sausage meat. Find an easy recipe and buy the meat pre-ground at the store. Mix it up with the required seasoning and form into sausage patties; for instance, breakfast sausage. If you like what you have made, you can always invest in a good grinder and stuffer later.

I hope my 'chime' was informative enough. 😄

Those "Deutsche" know how to make a sausage.

I make my own liverwurst, does that count?

It sure does. I've seen several different recipes that are liver based or contain liver. I plan on making some pretty soon.

I just made a batch out of deer liver and it came out great.
