Antelope Hot Italian Sausage

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

 


My step-son harvested an antelope a few weeks ago. He decided he'd like to have some Italian sausage made with it so this afternoon was the time. This was 17 pounds of antelope, 2 pork fat and 6 pounds of pork butt. We did about half into links and the other half bulk for ABTs, etc. BTW, these were some of the worst casings I've ever used. He bought them from Sportsman's Warehouse. I rinsed and turned inside out and they were worse on the inside than out. Won't be buying from there again.

Coming out of the grinder.



In the mixer.



Linked up.



Fry test. This is some good stuff!



Thanks for checking out our sausage.

Ha, I did the same thing with my antilope this year. Hopefully you saved the backstrap? Some of the best meat out there IMO.

Thanks for all the replies, folks.  As I mentioned to Walle, I did change up the recipe just a bit by using red wine for the liquid instead of ice water.  It sure made a difference in the taste.PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

What I ate several years ago was really good.

Sounds like a plan to try myself. Have you got a recipe to share?

For some reason, I thought I had posted my recipe.  It's for a 25 pound batch, so if you want less, you'll have to use Pop's calculator.

 

Hot Italian Sausage

25# pork (or pork wild game mix) of which 3 pounds is extra pork fat
12 Tablespoons Kosher salt
5 cups red wine (ice cold)
4 Tablespoons cracked fennel seed
5 teaspoons coarse black pepper
2 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
5 Tablespoons crushed red pepper
3 teaspoons caraway seeds
3 tablespoons coriander
2 Tablespoons ground chile peppers or ground jalapeno (optional)
Grind all meat through a 3/8" plate.  Add all the ingredients and mix well until evenly distributed.  Stuff into 32mm casings or package as bulk.
