I like the fact that Rytek is a second generation cuiseur-de-chair and draws his knowledge from practical experience. The resources in his book are from his mail-order house- "The Sausage Maker" in Buffalo, N.Y which carries everything you could imagine to make any kind of sausage.
Over one hundred recipes, from simple breakfast sausages to exotic venison salami, are explained in detail. From 5 pounds to 50.
Construction of dryers and smokers are explained as are resources for the purchase of grinders, stuffers, and equipment to open your own sausage shop. Great detail is given to the types and use of casings and chapters are devoted to safety in handling meat, proper additives, butchering, and cures, as well as the histories of these meats.
Many of the "secret" recipes to popular meats are explained as are tricks of the trade only a professional sausage maker could know. A great textbook for professional and novice sausage makers alike.
Nevertheless I would not buy the video since the book covers the subject so well that the video does not add to the learning process. The book can be purchased without the video for much less!
If Amazon.com can't help with it the Sausage Maker in Buffalo, NY carries the book without the video!
I doubt there is any book more complete than this one.
Since reading this book, I have read other sausage making books that suggest salt peter (gunpowder) and citric acid are acceptable cures. Simply, they are not. Had I not read this sausage making book first, my family would probably be dead.
