Sausage making can be a rewarding experience if you can only find the little techniques that enable you to make your own high caliber products. High Caliber is proud to be able to provide classes for those sausage artists that want to hone their processing skills. Click here to meet our top notch instructors.

Our informative sessions are taught by an engaging local meat industry expert. Each High Caliber Instructor brings comprehensive experience and knowledge relevant to the special requirements of each class. We aim, with instructor guidance and students participation, to capture all aspects of sausage making. You will see from reading their bio’s that they are authorities in their field with helpful tips for us amateurs. Of course, a little bit of hunter humor helps a lot!

The new sausage makers learn to choose the best cuts of meat, to grind, mix and stuff and all the secrets of the pros. Many topics will be covered, including the use of appropriate techniques, combining the perfect ingredients, and the importance of maintaining a high level of cleanliness.

It is a great way to exchange experiences with fellow sausage enthusiasts. And of course, the "best part" is enjoying the creations you have whole-heartily made! 

Commonly Asked Questions:

Do I need any prior sausage-making experience?

No, everyone will feel comfortable no matter what their previous efforts were. All students will learn valuable tips and techniques for better and tastier sausage.

Why is pre-registration required?

Pre-registration is required so we can make sure we fit all class members in comfortably that maximizes the instructor's availability for our private classes.

What do I get from the sausage class?

Each student receives personal instruction from our accredited instructor, as well as a booklet of information, recipes and samples to take home. You will receive one free bottle of spice, so you too can be a "Spice Hero"! As an extra bonus, you get a High Caliber apronscraper and thermometer. The tools of a real professional!

What products are made during the sausage class?

Generally, about 5 different kinds of sausage are made that day, using our very own High Caliber spice blends. This provides a great overview in making both fresh and smoked sausage. The actual sausage flavors may vary from class to class.

How many students can attend each class?

We want everyone to have a great personal experience, so only 10 people fit comfortably.
