    I got my venison bacon out of the smoker yesterday and put it into the fridg overnight. This morning I sliced some for breakfast. It was real good. This seasoning came from Mid-Western Research. First pic is out of the smoker, 2nd is sliced, 3rd is in the frying pan.

    I purchased the seasoning here:

    6 lbs venison
    4 lbs pork butt
    1 pkg seasoning
    2 Cups ice water

    Grind meat one time using a 1/8 plate
    Mix well for 10 or so minutes, this meat paste will be very sticky
    Line 2" dish, foil pan, etc., with Saran Wrap and divide/spread/pack meat paste evenly
    Cover with Saran wrap and refrigerate overnight

    Turn pan upside down on smokehouse racks and pull off plastic wrap
    Set the smoker at 130* for one hour with the damper open
    Turn up to 150* and smoke 3 hours with your desired wood, damper 1/2 open
    Then set temp at 180* w/no smoke and damper closed until the internal temp of the meat is 155* (NOTE 1)
    Place in the fridg overnight. Slice, vac seal and freeze (NOTE 2)

    NOTE 1:
    One pan of meat took about 1 hour longer to reach temp than the other, so be sure when you pull
    NOTE 2:
    I had my slicer set on #8

    Mid West is a good company I've dealt with them several times. Was it salty? I always find those pre-mixes salty.

    I am a salt freak and have the blood pressure to prove it, but salt was not the flavor that hit me.
