    Looking for one too, my buddy says Julia Child has a good one, going to see him tomorrow, will post if there is one in one of his Julia books.

      It took me a little while to find it but here is a recipe I got from Sharonll who is primal as well and used to blog here. I just made some last week and it is good. I left out the chicken livers and my smoker was not working but it was great anyway.
      Let me know what you think if you try it as well. This is called Braunschweiger which is pretty much the same as liverwurst in my book.

      I wrote down the recipe as I made it, so here it is:

      Homemade Braunschweiger

      10.5 oz raw beef liver
      1 pound ground pork
      1.5 lbs chicken liver pate (made a few months before, but it was too strong, so I froze it)
      3 tsp. salt
      1/2 cup butter
      4 oz onion chopped and sauteed the butter
      2 oz chopped garlic, added to the end of the onion sautee
      2 tsp ground black pepper
      1 tsp ground nutmeg
      1/2 tsp coriander
      1/2 tsp marjoram
      1/2 tsp cardamom

      Added spices to warm butter/onion/garlic mixture

      ground everything very fine, mixed very well

      brought cast iron panful of water to boil
      preheat oven to 300 degrees

      lined loaf pan with tin foil, poured mixture in, covered with foil

      baked until internal temp is 130 degrees

      meanwhile, prepare smoker with hickory chips

      take out of loaf pan, but leave in foil

      puncture foil to allow smoke in

      smoked another hour until internal temp is 160 degrees

      allow to set in fridge 2 days -- this batch is delicious after 10 hours, might get better
