Mankind has been making sausage long before we had the funny reference, so why would I call it anything else? Oh yeah, so I could call my buddy and tell him I was going to title a blog after his days working on undercover solicitation stings. Sometimes he hates me, but I will give him some of the seventy plus pounds of sausage I made up and all will be well.
Anyway, I shot two good sized boars last week on some private property that I help keep the population in check, so it was time to make some breakfast sausage. Here is the recipe we adapted: http://www.themeaningofpie.com/2012/03/wild-boar-sausage/
- 4 pounds of ground hog
- 4 teaspoons of ground sage
- 4 teaspoons of kosher salt
- 4 tablespoons of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of red pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne
- 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
Great flavor and my wife made a “Cowboy Casserole” out of the sausage before her trip to Florida, so I wouldn’t be tempted to live off cereal.
Here is my favorite rifle for large game right now. A Ruger Gunsite Scout. I am in the middle of an optics, weapon’s light, and NVG quandary, so I am running open sights on the XS rail.
The other big boy..
And two thumbs up for my new single bowl sink that can fit a whole hog in it..
And here is part of an email sent through the channels telling me to add a disclaimer to my facebook or blogs so you don’t think that the government endorses sausage fests.
“Also, add a disclaimer to your social networking profile, personal blog, or other online presences that clearly states that the opinions or views expressed are yours alone and do not represent the views of the Department of the Interior or your bureau.”
Count this as my disclaimer…
