Do you have a copy of Ruhlman & Polcyn's Charcuterie? They have a recipe for kielbasa. You should also check out the (very extended) thread on their indispensable book.

ingredients for 10 lbs.

5 tbsp salt

1 tbsp sugar

2 large cloves garlic (minced)

1tbsp coarse black pepper

1 heaping tsp marjoram

1 lb ice water (1 pint)

10 lbs boneless pork butts

grind all the pork butts through a 1/4" or 3/8" grinder plate

add other ingredients and mix thoroughly

stuff into 35-38 mm hog casing

hang on sticks and allow to dry in cooler

be sure the meat is chilled between 32-34 degrees F before starting.

all blood clots, cords bones etc are to be trimmed before starting.

do not let sausage remain @ room temp longer than necessary.

this is from, "Great Sausage Recipes and Meat Curing" by Rytek Kutas, pretty much the Holy Bible for sausage making....

i would taste test the bulk sausage before stuffing it just in case you want to tweak the seasoning...

Rytek Kutas is a stud when it comes to sausage making, i have used many recipes from this book, and they have all been spot on awesome.

i knew a guy who was quite the home sausage maker, he had a couple shelves full of books on the subject..

a few years later on one of my visits, i noticed all the books were gone except for the "kutas" book. i asked why? he said he'd read them all but this was the only one he really needed to keep.....

here is a recipe for smoked polish sausage from the same book

1 lb icewater

2 cups soy protein concentrate, or non-fat dry milk

5tbsp salt

1tbsp sugar

2 level tsp prague powder #1

1tbsp black pepper

2 large cloves garlic

1 heaping tsp marjoram

10 lbs boneless pork butts

grind same as other recipe

stuff into 38-42mm hog casing. sausage is often placed on smokehouse sticks , spaced properly and allowed to dry. you may dry the sausage as follows:

1) when stuffing the sausage, it is normally hung in the room where you are working. by the time you are done much of it may already be dry. you may put it in a preheated smokehouse @ 130F with dampers wide open for one houror until casings are dry and taking on a brown color.

2) place the sausage in a cooler and leave until they are dry.

Smoking

sausage is placed in 130F smoker with dampers wide open until casings are dry. gradually increase the temp of smokehouse to 160-165 F with dampers 1/4 open. apply heavy smoke until meat has internal temp of 152F.

remove from smoker and shower with cold tap water until meat is @ 110F. allow the sausage to hang @ room temp for 30 minutes or until desired bloom is reached. place in 38-40F cooler.

how much detail do you want on kielbasa? one of the greatest eG threads ever was on kielbasa, and it actually got me on eGullet some years ago. it was by eGs master of all things smoked, Col. Klink, and it runs through a whole bunch of threads...

the first one starts here:

and the wrapup is here:

      Normally, the local market has bresaola in tissue paper thin slices. Today they also had packages in small dice, probably the leftover ends, bits and pieces. Any thoughts on how to enjoy them, besides nibbling on it? 
       
      Thank you!

      Linguine with Squash, Goat Cheese and Bacon
      Serves 4 as Main Dishor 6 as Side.
      I stumbled on this while looking for recipes with goat cheese. It's from Real Simple (and it is!). I couldn't imagine the combination of flavors, but it was wonderful.

      6 slices bacon
      1 2- to 2 ½-pound butternut squash—peeled, seeded, and diced (4 to 5 cups)
      2 cloves garlic, minced
      1-1/2 c chicken broth
      1 tsp kosher salt
      4 oz soft goat cheese, crumbled
      1 lb linguine, cooked
      1 T olive oil
      2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

      Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel, then crumble or break into pieces; set aside. Drain all but about 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat from the skillet. Add the squash and garlic to the skillet and sauté over medium heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the broth and salt. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the squash is cooked through and softened, 20 to 25 minutes. Add half the goat cheese and stir well to combine. Place the cooked linguine in a large bowl. Stir the sauce into the linguine and toss well to coat. Drizzle with the olive oil and add the reserved bacon, the remaining goat cheese, and the pepper. Serve immediately.

      Duck Leg Confit Potstickers
      Serves 4 as Appetizer.
      These are seriously decadent potstickers.
      I devised this recipe as part of a Duck Three Ways dinner wherein over the course of three days I dismantled a whole duck using various parts for various things, including rendering fat, making stock and confiting the legs. If you're super-ambitious and do it my way, you'll have duck stock and duck fat on hand as this recipe calls for; otherwise, substitute chicken stock and peanut oil or whatever you have on hand.

      2 confited duck legs, bones discarded and meat shredded
      2 c sliced shiitake caps
      1/2 c sliced scallions
      splash fish sauce
      1 tsp grated fresh ginger
      1 tsp grated fresh garlic
      pinch Five Spice powder
      pot sticker wrappers
      3 c duck stock
      3 T duck fat

      1. Saute shiitakes in duck fat over high heat until most liquid has evaporated and they are beginning to brown.
      Meanwhile, reduce about 1 C duck stock in a small saucepan over medium heat until it's almost syrupy in consistency and tastes sweet.
      Also, warm a couple of cups of unreduced duck stock over low heat in another saucepan.
      2. Combine mushrooms, duck meat, scallions, fish sauce, ginger, garlic and Five Spice powder in a bowl.
      3. Place a teaspoon or so of the duck mixture in the center of a potsticker wrapper; wet half of the edge with water and seal, pinching and pleating one side.
      If you prepare more potstickers than you're going to want to eat, they can be frozen on cookie sheets then put into freezer bags for later.
      4. When all potstickers are sealed, heat a flat-bottomed pan over medium-high heat, melt enough duck fat to thinly cover the bottom, then add the potstickers.
      5. Cook undisturbed until the bottoms are browned, 3-5 minutes, then enough unreduced duck stock to cover the bottom of the pan about 1/2 inch deep and cover the pan.
      6. Cook until most liquid is absorbed, then uncover and cook until remaining liquid evaporates.
      While potstickers are cooking, make a dipping sauce by combining the reduced duck stock 1:1 with soy sauce, then adding a little rice vinegar, brown sugar (if the duck stock isn't sweet enough), and sesame oil.
      Serve potstickers immediately when done.

      Longganisa (Filipino breakfast sausage)

      1 kg ground pork (make sure it is fatty ground pork)
      1 medium onion finely chopped/minced
      4 T vinegar (white vinegar or any strong vinegar)
      2 T soy sauce
      2 tsp salt
      2 tsp pepper
      4 T brown sugar
      1 T paprika for coloring (most Filipinos add red food dye)
      6 cloves garlic, finely minced

      In a large clean bowl, mix everything up really well. Stuff into casings or make patties or finger-sized rolls for skinless longganisa. Let the meat cure for 6 hours or overnight before frying (I usually don't since I am too excited to eat them).
      Best served with garlic fried rice on the side with sunny-side eggs.
