Sausage making can be a rewarding experience if you can find the little techniques that enable you to make high caliber products. High Caliber is proud to offer classes for sausage artists that want to hone their skills.
Our informative sessions are taught by engaging local meat industry experts. 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!
Sausage makers learn to choose the best cuts of meat, to grind, mix and stuff and other secrets of the pros. Topics include 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. Take home the tools of a real professional including a High Caliber apron, scraper and thermometer.
What products are made during the sausage class?
Generally, 4 or 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.
