Anyone got a good salami recipe for use with sausage stuffers? I used to have one my dad used when he was still around. I want to make a bunch of salami this year.

Here is my grandmother's recipe.

4 lbs ground meat, minimum 25% fat
1/4 cup curing salt (We use Morton Tender Quick)
2 tbsp liquid smoke - Wright's brand or similar, not one with tomato or other ingredients
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp black pepper

Mix completely. Cover and chill 24 hours before forming into salami. Bake at 225˚ for 4 hours.

I like things less salty and more spicy, so I came up with these changes.

Reduce curing salt to 3 Tbsp
Double the garlic to 1 Tbsp
Double the black pepper to 1 Tbsp, using freshly crushed peppercorns
Add 1 tsp chipotle powder
Add 1 Tbsp chili powder or crushed dried poblano peppers

I prefer to cook in my smoker instead of an oven when possible.

Hi mountain original salami. Everyone I give some to loves it. The only thing I tweak on it is instead of the 18# it shows the recipe, I mix all the seasoning with 20# of meat (9# fatty pork trim, 9# wild game, and 2# beef fat). You'll need 2 or 3 extra casings for 20#. Then just follow their directions. Excellent!

Pretty close to the first one above but I've tweeked it a bit... Very good straight out of the oven and great with cheese and crackers with hot mustard.

4 lbs burger
1-t garlic pwdr
1t mustard seeds
2 T morton tender quick
4T liquid smoke
2t fresh garlic
2t blk pepper
2t whole peppercorns
1/2 cup chopped jalopenos
1/2 cup high temp cheese cubes, cheddar or pepper jack

Bake at 350 in a meatloaf style log of your choice in size until about 170, drain and slice

If you make large batches and stuff/smoke/freeze you will find that the frozen storage really detracts from the product
