The All Beef Steam Whistle Firehouse Sausage

This recipe was created by David Zilber, the head sausage and charcuterie maker of The Healthy Butcher, an organic butcher shop in Toronto. A Healthy Butcher original sausage, great for the BBQ. A great kick of spice mixed with Steam Whistle Pilsner to mellow the flavour, and balance it out.


Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl, ensuring all the wet and dry ingredients are evenly distributed throughout. Thoroughly rinse the hog casing of any salt and slide it onto the nozzle of any home sausage making machine (kitchenaid mixers, or the like). Fill the casings, and tie the sausages off at 6 inches in length.

Grill and serve with a cold bottle of Steam Whistle!
