Great Sausage Recipes and Meat Curing (4th Edition) by Rytek Kutas

Not just another recipe book. This book was a guide to thousands in decades past to learn traditional methods of sausage-making, meat curing, and food preservation. Great Sausage Recipes and Meat Curing encompasses everything that the food enthusiast will want from a home reference book for proper sausage making, smoking, brining, curing (including Semi- and Dry-Curing), using proper casings, making specialty foods, opening a sausage-kitchen and hundreds of additional information that other resources simply fall short of presenting.

Not written by a food author, nor is it a collection of basic information already available on the web. Its a non-fiction book, meat curing reference manual, sausage making guide, traditional cookbook and educational textbook with inside information from a professional sausage maker.

**This edition is no longer available in hardcover. The Great Sausage Recipes and Meat Curing, 4th Edition, by Rytek Kutas is currently only available in softcover.

  • 552 pages
  • Over 190 exciting recipes

    This book was recommended to me and it did not disappoint. I am not a metric guy, but all my curing is done in grams. I wish the book had more metric conversions. Over all I love this book.

    This book is a must for someone who is interested in home processing. It gives a great overview of the sausage making process and the recipe’s are very solid. I have the first edition of this book, that was passed on to me, and recently purchased another because the binding was separating on the original. Every time I make sausage I reference something in this book!

    I ordered this book as my husband and I are trying to make more of our own food. I have a garden; goats for milk, cheeses, soap, etc.; chickens; ducks and we decided to go the next route and try and make our own sausages. The recipes are very clear and the additional information that Rytek Kutas provides is extremely valuable. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in making their own sausages–no matter what type of meat you may be using.

  56. Tom Brosman (verified owner)

    I have made sausages and bacon and hams since I was 10, 55 years ago. I have had all kinds of smokehouse and my products have made people happy.

    The service and the products from this company are the best in the industry.

    With sincere regards,

    I needed to learn more about sausage making and these two books hit the nail on the head! My order arrived very quickly and the books were wrapped and sealed in plastic, padded in the box and arrived in perfect condition. I appreciate the great care that you all took to send this order. I will definitely visit again and purchase more from you folks as I learn skills and need to expand my knowledge more. Thanks.

    Incredible guide to sausage making at a very good price

  81. Kevin Klockow (verified owner)

    This is a great book, I’ve purchased the same title as gifts for friends as well. The reason I am taking time out to give my opinion though, is the customer service at The sausage maker Co.
    In a time of throw away products, mass marketing, and social media, product quality and customer service is a thing of the past.
    However, at The Sausage Maker the products are top quality and reasonably priced. That combined with the knowledgeable staff that are conscientious and caring makes any purchase from them a wise investment.

  82. Lew (verified owner)

    I would have liked to see more breakfast sausage recipes . Like maple sausage .
