Recipe of the Month
Cherry Smoked Mettwurst

Ingredients for the Sausage per kg:

For Smoking


  • 1. Ensure all equipment is sanitised and cold prior to use.
  • 2. Take chilled meats from fridge and grind all three through a medium to fine plate.
  • 3. Add and mix all ingredients for a couple of minutes.
  • 5. Regrind through the same plate.
  • 6. Stuff firmly into 44mm Cacciatore Hog Casings (these are edible).
  • 7. Create 20-25cm links.
  • 8. Cure sausages in the fridge for 12 hours.
  • 9. Smoking - Transfer sausages to smoking chamber (Masterbuilt Smoker preferable). Fill Double Barrel with Cherry pellets, or species of choice. Hit with cold smoke for 4 hours (Ideal temperature for smoking is 40-50°C), let rest for 2 hours and then hit it again for 4 hours (during this second smoke, raise the temperature of your smoker to 75°C to bring your sausage up to the an internal temp of 65°C), if you can’t control the temperature like you can in a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker, you can do a 2nd cold smoke and then bring up the internal temp of your sausages in an oven instead.
  • 11. After your sausage has reached the correct temp, cool them quickly in cold water, and then let bloom for 2 hours at room temperature before transferring to the fridge. Mettwurst will keep for up to a week in a fridge, they can also be frozen.
  • 12. Enjoy!

Flavour country - Mix it up! 5 Star Review

Posted by Andy on 19th Jun 2017

This was my first purchase from Smoked and Cured and I couldn't be happier. Great range of flavours to choose from but I opted for 1 bag of 'Pecan' and 1 bag of 'Apple Wood'. This mix perfectly complemented the 6 hour Pork Ribs and Shoulder I smoked on the weekend.

The cost is very reasonable too. Compared to what is on offer in certain retail stores, the choices alone make these worthwhile, however it actually worked out about 50% of what others were charging.

I anticipate that I can get another 2 cooks out of what I have left also. Overall an excellent product, that is great value for money.

Healthy Smoking 5 Star Review

Posted by james on 22nd May 2017

i purchased an electric smoker, it arrived and i couldnt wait to get started, i did a brisket and a pork shoulder, the summary of my quest was perfect, put more on, they didn't get the idea of it taking 5 to 7 hours but are now eagerly waiting my next creation. It was so easy to use, i can hardly wait till i can smoke some fresh salmon.
