I really appreciate the help here but I forgot to ask one question. By pig jowl I'm assuming that you mean the cheek of the pig as we call it here. Are there alternatives to this if it isn't available?

I also saw another recipe on this site

Saveloy Recipe
8 lbs Lean Beef , Pork etc.
2 lbs Pork Fat
4 lbs Rusk (soaked)
� lb liquid smoke powder

What on earth is liquid smoke powder and what does it do? do I need it and where could I get it?

The seasoning came after. I get the impression that ground white pepper is the main seasoning ingredient for Savs which is OK by me.

Jowl is indeed cheek meat if this is unavailable use a fatty belly about 50% lean.
Liquid smoke powder is a way of imparting smoke into the product without the hard work, although 1/2 lb seem very excessive.
If you want a smoked flavour the replace the bacon trim with smoked bacon.

Thanks for the support, advice and links (just realised the sausage joke in that!).

You're welcome; as to the links connection pre1630(ish) that wouldn't have been found funny/humerous.

Did they have internet links back in 1630 then?!!

You'll need to give us more details about what you are doing for the cooking. Are you making the sausage? Welcome to the forum. :D

It's often related to mixing, but without a recipe and method it's difficult to comment further.

If the recipe is 'Commercial - In Confidence' PM it to either NcPaul or myself.
