A Note About Cure: Cure should be used to control botulism as well as add color and flavor to your smoked or cooked sausage.

To make the entire 25 lb. package at one time: Dissolve entire seasoning and cure packets into 20 ounces of water for 20 pounds of meat.
To make smaller batches: Use 10 teaspoons of seasoning, a scant 1/4 teaspoon of cure (1.1g) and 1 ounce of water for each pound of meat used.
