    I am very new to the forums here but not to making a decent venison summer sausage.

    I have been poking around here most of the afternoon and the "norm" seems to be 50/50 venison to pork but which will give you about a 80/20 meat to fat ratio.

    Does anyone use beef fat/suet?

    We make a pretty good SS with a 75/25 venison to beef suet mix. We then take 4lbs of that and add 1lb of a fatty pork sausage to get 5lbs of sausage mix. Cure, spice and smoke.  yum!

    Also with this mixture I never worry about fat rendering out. 

    I set the smoker to about 200 and let the smoke roll from the very beginning.  155-160 IT and let it cool with the naturally cool Nov air and I have no case wrinkling.  

    Just call me a rebel!

    I do not like any pork in SS or sticks, just seams a bit to greasy for my liking. I use a 70/30 venny to beef ratio for my SS and sticks. Pork belongs in brats, weiners, and breakfast sausage.
