I am looking to make some hog and deer sausage, this is my first post and I have looked around a lot and have gotten a lot of good info. Usually it seems that when someone posts something on here, people always want more info, my only problem is that I guess I do not know enough to say what type of sausage I am looking to make, I just would like to make a good sausage that I can throw on the pit, cook till it spurts and then slice up and eat. I have read the lists of the different kinds, but reading and tasting are two different things. I am going to need to get a grinder and stuffer, and have read the posts about those and am probably going to go with the Northern Tool one, seems to be a favorite. As far as seasonings, cures, casings and such, which would you use to make sausage? So what I'm really asking is if you were going to make deer and wild hog sausage, what equipment do/would you use to make your favorite sausage, and what seasonings/cures, ingrediants do you use? Would you add a pork shoulder or butt? This is my first post, so if I am going about this wrong, or am doing something wrong, let me know, I'll put myself in the corner for a time out and not do it again. I have been impressed with how helpful everyone is on here, and am thankful I found this site. I do have a LittleTex electric smoker, and an unlimited supply of mesquite, that stuff is crazy. Thanks again.
