    Cut the lamb shoulder into 2-inch pieces, and using a meat grinder, grind the meat. Keeping the ground lamb cold during the process is important so the fat does not melt, yielding a better sausage texture.

    In a large bowl, gently combine the lamb with the garlic, cumin, paprika, cayenne, fennel, cilantro, parsley, pepper, and salt. Cover and refrigerate the ground lamb.

    Using a sausage horn, attach the hog casing and feed the sausage back through the grinder to fill the casing and twist it into links. With a paring knife, prick holes all along the casing (this will allow steam to escape while cooking). Refrigerate the links.
