For those who make sausage

First off it’s a great book and just seeing these two together is awesome. I know you all know Steve, but Michael is more of a culinary guy and a total bad ass

I have this book. Charcuterie book
I did try venison salami, etc. last year but it was a failure. I killed the bacteria when I put the meat back in the fridge while getting the stuffer ready. 30+ pounds of meat in the garbage.
I also paid up for sausage and jerky makers bible 

Yea once the bacteria is introduced no need to refrigerate. I just got the book today. Dried raw sausage even as a chef scares me but I’m sure I’ll try one. I just don’t really have a cool room
To do it in, I’m thinking about using my wine fridge with the same humidity Device I use in my cigar humidor

That could work, and would be very cost effective. I used the Umai bags https://www.drybagsteak.com/shop-umai-salumi-kits.php ina spare fridge.

@Chef, any progress turning your wine fridge into a sausage curing chamber? I was reading about how to make one with an old fridge (http://blog.sausagemaker.com/2015/11/how-to-make-dry-curing-chamber.html) and was looking at these controllers on Ebay (https://www.ebay.com/itm/Inkbird-Temperature-Humidity-Controller-Combination-Gauge-ITC-308-IHC-200-110v/163641235634?hash=item2619c718b2:g:ivMAAOSw32lcruoW)

@hueyjazz , would you have any thoughts regarding making your own dried sausage curing box? Note, I am not yet clear on exactly what the temperature and humidity ranges need to be. I think it varies by type or size of sausage being cured.
