Default Homemade BRATWURST

Made these up some time ago along with some italian sausages and maple breakfast sausages.

Last night was the first time we've tried the brats.

Smoked on the LBGE at about 400 with some cherry wood until the IT was 160. Saute'd up some yellow peppers and onions and made some steak fries too. Turned out great. I don't think I'm gonna change a THING with that recipe. It's a keeper!











Thanks for lookin!

Man, I cannot remember where I got it. I think it was from one of the websites you sent me, but I can't recall. I just wrote it down on a piece of paper and threw it in my recipe stash.


Anyway, here it is....

5 lb pork butt
2 tbs sugar
3 tbs kosher salt
1-1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/4 tsp ground celery seed
2 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp ground marjoram
1-1/2 tsp dried ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground white pepper
1/8 tsp ground mace
1/2 tsp granulated garlic
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp accent (optional, but I added it)


Course grind through the big holes
Mix in spices
DO NOT overmix
Stuff




The only thing I thought about adjusting at all was the salt. I thought they were a bit salty, but everyone else disagreed and thought they were fine. Brats are usually a bit salty anyway so I don't think I'm gonna change anything. I MAY try it without the Accent next time and see what that does, but I really hate to mess with it.

Yeah we got an awesome Black Friday deal on a Kitchen Aid stand mixer and I'm thinking the sausage stuffer is attachment #1.

The grinder is cool (stuffer comes as part of that), but after a couple stuffing sessions you'll most likely get a dedicated stuffer. It happened to me, and I've seen it over and over - but don't get me wrong - the grinder is fine, esp. if your mainly doing 5 or 10# batches - it's just stuffing with that thing can be a biatch.

But by all means - MAKE SAUSAGE! You won't go back!

Regarding KitchenAid:
