Some of the guys that "cold" smoke on here for a "few" hours(seems like the time is based on humidity and temp) to add flavor only, do not cure based on what I am reading. Planning on two weekends from now to grind, stuff, cold smoke, then vacuum seal and freeze to cook at a later date. we should have low humidity and temps around 50-55 degrees during the day and cooler at night. trying to figure out if the cure is absolutely needed, and if so, does that change the amount of salt that I add to the recipe....

I do not change anything when adding cure. The recipe stays the same.

Yes, it is also my understanding that some dont use cure, but you really need to know what you are doing or you could possibly ruin a batch of meat. They wait until the weather is just right and have success.

Iím ready to make sausage again.
Picked up all the ingredients and weighed the meat.
85# of pork
89# of venison.

The other fellas probably have just as much.
Going to be a long fun weekend.

50# will be Travis's Jalapeno and cheese recipe.
50# will use Blake's Cajun Sausage seasoning.
50# will use Blake's Italian Sausage seasoning.
Anything left will go into summer sausage.

This will be my first time trying both of his sausage seasonings, but I'm sure it will be tasty. Everything else that he sells is the bomb!

I went to his site but didn't see a sausage seasoning blend, is it just the cajun seasoning?

I think you have to email him to get a list of everything he carries. Or send him a PM.
