    Ok, its really summer sausage but doing this in the bitter cold today the name didn't seem appropriate. Did 15lbs starting yesterday afternoon with a 75%/25% venison to pork ratio.

    Then through the grinder and mixed in seasonings and cure.

    Then into 5-3lb fiberous casing tubes and cured in the fridge overnite.

    Got them on the smoker @ 9:30 this morning and done @ 4:30pm.

    Had to try a piece just out of the smoker. Turned out pretty good.

    Now time to cook dinnner!

    Smoked thru the casing? Well, I only use natural... but really?

    It definitly takes on a good smoked flavor but I've often wondered if it is just the casing flavoring it just on the outside edge. No smoke ring that's for sure. I use natural casings for everything else. Can you get natual casing in 2-1/2 - 3in in diameter?
