    Brats

    Twenty-five pounds of Bratwurst this morning. I stole ideas from @Meathead,J.Kenji, and Len Poli. I have never used cream in sausage before, and i like it. It is noticeable (creamy?) Click image for larger version

            Heavy cream? Interesting.. I use milk powder in all my sausages as it helps the sausage retain moisture,. I wonder if the cream does the same thing. Are you gonna smoke them?? Or leave them fresh??

              I'm going to smoke a strand (maybe two), just to see. I wanted the cure mainly for color development, but all that cream kinda negates that.
              Should I smoke them to fully cooked (155*), or just for color?

                I would smoke them to 160. That is the temp that is considered fully cooked according to the department of health meat inspector that comes to my shop.
