Default Dat Gabbagool stuff

Yup capicola, started it today and ordered the casings so they should be here in a few days, well b4 I need them. Thinking I gonna make a sweet style instead of the hot style.

So far the hardest part is finding a competent butcher who can figure out wtf you want... After 3 stores and a meat service I said fawk it and just bought the shoulders and cut out my own coppas (you dont even want to see what the guy at the meat service did to the fat back , guess I got fat for sausage now )

http://curedmeats.blogspot.com/2007/...rvest-one.html

OK anyway here they are, using just a basic sugar/salt cure...normally I use brown sugar but my back is hurting today and didnt feel like bending over to get the brown sugar


let them cure for 9 days then I'll post a update (yes this is as much for my record keeping as showing you guys

Where do you order your stuff from? Butcher and Packer? I'm really lucky, they're a Detroit based company, so I get to run over there anytime I need something.

I've been thinking about a capicola as well. Are you going to spice it when going into the casings? What recipes are you using?

after 18 days of curing I'm gonna spice it up and then case it, tie it, and hang it.

Using the recipe found in "Charcuterie: The Craft of Salting, Smoking, and Curing" Going the sweet route instead of the spicy. The wife thinks ketchup has too much ZING to it :P

also ordered some starter and mold so will be doing a salume and peperon in the very near future

Alright, that's it! I'm ordering that book and curing some meat. Just what I need, another hobby tangent... The MRS is going to love this.



Seriously though, the only thing that worries me is where to hang the meat. Any suggs?

Looks good. I've always eaten capicola hot, but I'm sure it will be great sweet also.

small 3x5 area plastic lined on 2 sides cement block on the other 2... right where I have the ham hanging (no thats not the humidifier)
