    What's your favorite breakfast sausage? There is a little store down the street that cooks breakfast and get it's from bardstown in I'm correct. They have hot and mild. Man is it delicious

    That would be Jake's Country sausage. I know the guy who made the recipe as well as the guy who got it approved for mass market. He passed away from cancer. It originally came from 150 Quick Stop. One of my best friends back in the day, his parents owned the store, used to complain about mixing it up all day long.
    I think it's ok, not great

    Actually i can. I have made sausage 2 years in a row now with other members on here and i prefer it over Jake's. It's not hard but it takes time. I think we made 250 lbs this past Feb from 2 pigs. Last year we did 3 pigs.
     
  5. I make the best whole hog country sausage I’ve ever had.....it’s GOOOOOD, got some Purnell in my blood.;) Too bad we don’t kill hogs anymore.

    A.C. Leggs no.11 mixed about 5 lbs stronger than called for, and ground twice is always my go to. I also enjoy their maple flavored. Can't remember the number for it off the top of my head. Hard to beat sausage from a good 10-12 month old hog. Most of the store bought stuff is spent sows, boars etc all mixed together.

    Had a little bear sausage this morning. Not as good as fat hog sausage but not bad.

    I agree. I haven’t had any sausage that is better than what we made.

    I love sausage especially home made . Save a Lot had pork tenderloin at $1.60 a pound . I thought about buying a couple of them and making sausage that would be cheaper than buying ready made and way better . I do have my own grinder .

  12. Same here. I think what made mine and my buddies’ sausage so good was that we used the whole hog* and of course the freshness level and the fact our hogs were more fat than lean like today’s commercial hogs.

    * minus the loins and one ham

    My wife wants to start buying boston butts for me to make sausage with. She liked what we made better than store bought. We cut out the chops, ribs, and bacon, everything else went to sausage

    55 pork chops gone in 2-3 months...damn. Always cook 8 at one time...7 meals. Son of mine needs to start grazing out in the field.
