½ cup Rustic Rub
1 ½ teaspoons chili powder
¼ cup paprika
1 ½ teaspoons file powder
3 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 ½ teaspoons crushed red pepper

In a mixing bowl, toss the pork with the remaining ingredients together. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. Remove from the refrigerator and pass the meat through a meat grinder with a ½ inch die attachment. Remove half of the meat and pass through the grinder a second time. Stuff ½ the sausage into 1 ½ inch casings. Tie the casings at 4 inch intervals for individual links. Form the remaining mixture into 4 ounce patties.
