    Smoked meats, bacon, sausages are so very tasty, it's easy for some people to eat WAY more than they need.
    I was one of those people ;-)
    Oh, so very true! LOL!

The convenience factor is huge, and they're often healthier than the other available options like fried food or Chinese take-out. We've talked a lot about nitrates here; there's nothing to worry about. Most of the "nitrate-free" brands use celery juice, which the FDA doesn't force them to disclose, but it's all the same thing. I'd far rather there were nitrates and no botulism, than have botulism and no nitrates! And the trace amounts of carbs in store-bought sausage are not enough to worry about, although I often wonder why the manufacturers put that crap in their sausage. It's certainly unnecessary.
    Do you blog? I'm dying to learn more about curing and smoking meats. Hubby and love playing with our smoker, but don't know much yet.

    I started blogging for a while last year, but gave it up for lack of time. Nowadays, I find the time I spend on this forum is about equal to what I used to spend blogging, but actually more enjoyable. There are a few good sausage making blogs and great recipes online. Here are some from my list:

    Serdelki sausage http://www.wedlinydomowe.com/sausage-recipes/serdelki.htm

    Polish sausage http://schmidling.com/polsaus.htm

    Country sausage http://www.lets-make-sausage.com/country-sausage-recipe.html
