2 1/2 pounds ground pork (shoulder cut)
2 1/2 pounds ground beef (brisket, round, or sirloin)
2 teaspoons dried sage
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons dried basil
2 teaspoons anise seed
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 dash salt
1 dash ground black pepper


Mix the meats with the spices.

For sausage links, attach 2 1/4-inch sausage casings to the stuffer nozzle on a hand meat grinder. Stuff the casings to the desired length, cut the links, and secure the ends with string.

Barbecue at 225 degrees F for 2 hours or slow-smoke at 185 degrees F for 4 hours.

For sausage patties, form the meat mixture into a roll and cover with wax paper. Slice the roll into patties and peel off the wax paper. Patties can be fried or grilled.

We've been making our own sausage lately and just tried this one. The flavors are good but I think I would have preferred either all pork or a higher ratio of pork to beef. I just find that spicy sausage tastes better to me when it's pork not beef.
