The ‘Smokehowze’ Sausage Making & Charcuterie Guide On Information, Equipment, Materials & Supplies Attached below is a PDF Document that encompasses the following: This guide on information, equipment, materials, and other items useful for the home production of sausages and cured meats is divided into the following sections: I. Some Useful Books on Sausage & Charcuterie II. Some Sausage Making Websites III. Some Typical Sausage Supplies & Sources IV. Some Typical Sausage Equipment & Sources V. Some Typical Sources for Sausage & Meat Curing Environmental Control & Measuring VI. Some Smoke Generation Approaches VII. Personal & Food Safety/Handling & Sanitizing VIII. Storage Ideas IX. Some Sausage Related Ideas from ‘Smokehowze’ X. Some Useful References The material compiled here represents a selection of items that I use and/or have purchased from the various suppliers as indicated, during the course of pursuing and expanded my participation in the artisan world of sausage making and charcuterie. As I cast about the web and various forums learning and seeking supplies and materials I realized that I was making notes for myself on where I got various items especially those that are recurring purchases. It is not necessarily a definitive guide but may be of use to those entering this exciting and tasteful hobby. I originally started this guide for my own reference but recently expanded it to assist a number of relatives and friends who have decided to embark on this journey after enjoying the results of my sausage and meat curing forays. I apologize if the organization of this material might be better within some sections but given the topic/areas to cover it seems that there is not a single best way to present the information other than just put it out there. In some cases, I have added my observations and ideas based on my experiences where it makes sense. Where prices are indicated in this guide they should be considered as representative only and are only provided to give an appreciation to the reader on the approximate cost of an item. You can certainly get started with a subset of what is presented here (I sure did) but over time may find much of this useful to make the hobby more enjoyable and efficient as well as to widen your horizons in the hobby. I consider this guide a ‘work-in progress’. I hope you find this useful in your endeavors. Do not be afraid to jump into this area of cooking. You can make really good sausage in simple ways. ~~ Smokehowze ~~ PS.
