pouring rain yesterday so I thought I'd get busy w/ this.
8ttl. lbs 80/20 beef/pork after trimming
top round for beef & butt for pork.
2.5 heaping tbsp minced garlic(from a jar)
1 heaping tbsp cracked black pepper
3 tsp coarse sea salt
2 tsp hot Hungarian paprika
4 tsp regular spanish paprika
sprinkle of fajita spice
fry test nice & lean & spicy.
tasted real close & looked right but I won't be sure until it sits overnight & then smoked. it could be a tad spicier but still good.
helpful hint-grease or rub the stuffer tube w/ a dab of meat before putting the very 1st casing on. I forgot & man it was a b*tch.
told ya it was flooding-
