Making some fresh Andouille this morning......Update - Smoking pics


My mentor (dad) is making me 15 lb of andouille this morning. I'm off tomorrow so we will smoke it tomorrow morning. I love doing this kind of stuff with him and he enjoys it as well. Good times.

The meat mixture.


Into the electric grinder/stuffer.


First link.


Good length for storage.


Cut and tie. Ready for smoker.


Will have some pics of the smoking process tomorrow.

Final batch. 15 lbs. 35 links.


Our home made smoke house.


Hanging links smoking. Will smoke these for 6 hours using pecan. Also had a small pice of deer we are making jerky there hanging below the andouille links.




Will post the final product when done.

Final.

I have a very similar grinder and we struggled stuffing through it and it smashed the boudin we tried all to shite. Went ahead and bought the LEM 5 lb upright stuffer and it's like a dream compared to stuffing through the grinder. I haven't tried bouding with it yet but I'm betting it will be 100% better.

Great thread. I do want to see the smoke set-up.

One day, I want to watch you do cranklins and a jambalaya. I can make both, but want to step up my game.

Where do you get the casing from, and what is the price?

He got it from Porches in French Settlement. It's real, not man made casing. Not sure how much it cost. Ill ask.

Looks good! 2 threads in one day about making sausage means I have to do it this week!

One thing I learned with the electric grinder is to remove the blade and get a large hole insert in its place so you can still attach the stuffer tube.

120 F for two hours then increase to 155 for another two hours then back down to 120 for the last two hours. I don't want the internal temp to stay at 155 long at all or all the fat will cook out. After we pull off we will cool down in the outside frigerator to stop the cooking process. Then wrap in butchers paper.
