what can you share about the process?  I just bought a kitchen aid mixer, I'm planning on buying a meat grinder in the next couple of days so I'm looking around for information.

Angle,

This is the process

1). Trim and cut meat into 2 inch cubes and marinate in citrus juices and a combination of spices for at least 48 hours.

2).  After marinating meat test a couple of pieces by frying them up and tasting for spice level before adding additional ingredients.

3).  Grind the meat then add additional spices as desired and hand mix thoroughly.

4). Insert grounded meat into sausage casing.

5). Smoke the sausage links. My father in law uses Oak.

6). Fry them up and enjoy.

Step 2 is probably the most important step since it gives you the opportunity to gauge and adjust spice level. The citrus juices consists of sour oranges and I believe lemons. Spices are a blend of garlic powder, cheyenne etc. He also adds a thick red pepper paste/sauce he calls "Malagata". The Malagata gives the linguisa it's dark reddish hue and heat level.

Hope this helps

"Malagata "

Could it be malagueta?  That's another name for piri piri and that makes perfect sense for a Portuguese linguica especially from the Azores or maybe  even Brazil b

You can pick up the spices pre-mixed at savory spice shop in santa rosa across from the russian river brewery.  It makes one of the best spicy hot sauces in the world, tons of flavor to go along with the heat.

I think I'll try my hand at this, you can never have too much linguica.

Are you using the meat grinder attachment to the kitchen aid mixer?  It's a little slow but does the job just fine.  Make sure to invest in some food grade white grease for the worm.  If you are using the stuffer for the KA that goes extremely slow but again it does the job.  Leave the grind a bit more coarse than you otherwise would, the KA doesn't handle stuffing with fine grinds and pastes well at all.

Pg 1 pic 3 shows the ground up meat prior to adding the additional spices. It is a very coarse grind.

I bought this one... http://smokehousechef.com/the-original-stainless-steel-meat-grinder-attachment-for-kitchenaid-mixer-plus-sausage-stuffing-kit/

Seems to work pretty well but the process is a bit slow.  Maybe I'll streamline it a bit as I gain sausage stuffin' skill.


I think I perfected the linguisa recipe though.  CDM, have your father in law give me a call, I'll give him the recipe. :smt003

Yeah sorry I wasn't clear, I meant that in general, not specifically for linguica.  In general, the KA stuffer sucks as fine grind sausage.
