Sausage Maker needed for recipe

Hello,
As a part time home sausage maker, I'm looking for a recipe for Krakowska. I know it's stuffed in a 4 inch casing, making it great for sliced lunch meat, it's made with fresh lean ham, and has a good amount of garlic. I also believe it is then smoked. If by chance we have a butcher/sausage maker in the audience who'd be willing to part with a recipe, I'd be very appreciative!

Thank you.

You should use good wood (pear or plum tree are very good I think) to smoke the meat. Don't use any cheap wood - the natural is best.

First of all you should have good pig (100 kg middle fatty is the best)

Polish sausages often seem to be named after their place of origin. If you're making Polish-style sausages outside of Poland, you may have to Polonicise your local place-name.

(pear or plum tree are very good I think)

What about applewood? There are plenty of apple trees in Poland. The country seems to be full of them.
Then what about Alder (olsza)? Is this ever used?

Only juniper :-) The best myśliwska kiełbasa (hunter's sausage) is only smoked using juniper.

Wild juniper. Juniperus communis. Jałowiec pospolity. Just a little bit of juniper berry works very well with venison. The berries are also used in gin, but I think we should swiftly move on from the old "mother's ruin" and turn to sausages! As a wood for smoking, it's not one I've seen mention of before, but now looking at it, it's obviously a prime candidate.
