View Full Version : 1st Attempt at Sausage Making

My version of Boudin (no pork liver or blood). Basically a recipe of Dirty Rice with JD pork sausage stuffed in natural casing. Smoked with pecan for 1 1/2 hours since the ingredients were already cooked.
Two of my neighbors thought they tasted great! Though alcohol was involved.
The string was requied cuz I tried to twist into links when it was too full and burst the casing.

3 lbs Pork belly, roasted, finely chopped
12 oz Liver, pork, cooked and finely chopped
8 each Intestines, pig, soaked in hot water

Pepper, cayenne
* ,stock to boil
* Add rice, cook according to package directions
* Blend hot rice with onion tops, pork belly, and liver, season heavily with salt and peppers
* Thread intestine onto extruder, tie knot in end, feed rice mixture into feeder funnel at top of machine, as stuffed intestine reaches 6" in length, spin it to form sausage shape, continue til intestine reaches end

I love boudin(with liver) when it is lightly grilled until the skin makes a poppin' sound when you bite it. :thumb:

I just got lucky, someone gave an older universal #333 meat grinder. I can still get parts for it as I need the funnel to stuff casings. I believe I will try making some sausage.

I'm tackling chicken boudin for the first time,wondering if anybody on the board has ever made a batch? Tips? Suggestions?

I've ever even seen boudin, much less tasted it.

I have done my share of very similar looking links though.:biggrin1:

It's about the same as the pork boudin. I would shoot for a 5 to 1 ratio dark meat to chicken liver. I noticed you roast your pork meat. Traditionally it would be boiled/poached together with the liver and veggies, but you probably know that. Anyway I would do the chicken this way and just use that stock for the moisture you need.

Interesting reading on The Boudin Link (http://boudinlink.com).

Reading across some boudin pages I discovered that Poche's in Breaux Bridge uses cream of mushroom soup in their crawfish boudin! Wondering if anyone has experimented with using soup base in their links?

Looks great to me! :clap2:

I haven't made boudin yet, but I love the stuff, so I will be soon. Lotta different recipes out there!

Will you be making sausage again? I got kinda hooked on doing it - won't buy commercial anymore.
