I was thumbing through the Barbecue Bible earlier this morning and ran across page 231, Spicy Chorizos...

Image

The recipe called for 2.5 lbs of pork, but my boston butt was a 4.5 pounder. After deboning it, I figure it was about 4 lbs. So I had to do some calculating to get the proportions right for the ingredients. Wow, math was much easier for me when I was a kid! :lol:

Here's the butt:

Minus the bone:

Ingredients ready to go in with the ground pork:

Mixed together with the KitchenAide:

Linked up with Natural Hog Casings:

My mancave getting ready for action!! :D

Image

Grilled indirectly with some Wicked Good Charcoal...

Image

Grilled up some sesame buns and red onions to go with the Spicy Chorizos. My wife made an Arugula salad with White Balsamic for the side.

Image

The flavor of the chorizos were AWESOME!!! However, they were on the dry side. :? I either cooked them too long, or more fat was needed. I'll have to use a instant read thermometer the next time I grill some up. I have a ton of them in the freezer after whipping up this batch, so I guess I'll know in the near future. All in all though, great meal! :)

Woe Dyal, I am impressed!! That chorizo looks as good as the stuff you get in the store. I'm sure it tasted even better. What I like is you can make them as spicy as you'd like too. I'm curious what type of store did you get the hot dog casing from? A New Years Resolution for me this year was to revisit my old cookbooks to look for new things to make. This post makes me think that is going to be a great idea.

:shock: That is impressive! I would love to try and make sausage one day.

Hey, my Babrbecue Bible doesn't have color pictures. Or any, come to think of it. No fair. :(

Dyal,

Very Impressive. Are you going to take orders and ship them out by any chance??

Thanks, guys! :) These definitely had a better flavor than the chorizos I've had from the store, but next time I'll add more fat. This boston butt had little to no fat cap. I was expecting to see one when I flipped it out of the package, but Nope! :? Just a really thin layer of fat.

Jim, I have an AWESOME Sporting Goods, Camping, Fishing, Hunting, etc. store here in Columbia called "Sportman's Warehouse." It's like a slightly smaller version of Bass Pro Shop.

http://www.sportsmanswarehouse.com/

I get most of my Smoking Woods from them. They have Mesquite, Hickory, Pecan, Apple, Cherry, Maple and Alder Woods.

Griffin, did your wife get you your copy of Barbecue Bible? That may explain why it's in Black and White. 'Cuz we already know something must be wrong with her vision!!! :twisted:

sroach, NOPE, ya have to come to my house to get one. :wink:

No, more likely its just that my copy is a lot older than yours. I think they have a reprinted new addition now.

Great job Dyal! You sure you're not a butcher? :wink: I've been thinking about making some beef summer sausage. Your results make me want to stop thinking and just "do" .

Thanks, guys and gal. :D

Bill, ya gotta get a KitchenAide or some other grinder with sausage stuffing capabilities. Ya won't regret it.

smokin'gal, actually, my father was a butcher before retiring. I chose a different route for my career, but enjoy this hobby. Grilling and smoking gives me and my father a common ground though for conversation. :) And yes, stop thinking about the summer sausage and do it already. And share the results with the rest of us! :D

I'm about 4 hours away from Durham and Bill's a little bit longer than that. Maybe a tad too long for a road trip..... :? ......but maybe there could be some Barbecue event/competition at which a lot of us dedicated Barbecue Biblers could aim towards going and meeting. :D If it was scheduled far enough in advance, that way I could request off from work, I think it would be fun! :D
