I grind using the fine plate once and mix until the meat gets "sticky" and well homogenized..... then stuff...... season the meat, when it is cubed, then grind...




These sticks didn't get to uniform... I didn't get all the air out of the stuffer canister... Makes for uneven pressure when stuffing....

Should I mix fat in with my venison or should I use the leanest venison possible.

You'll want about 25% pork fat added.... Don't use venison fat... It's tallow and taste like cr@p... Leaves a film in your mouth.... You can use "bacon ends and pieces" ... they work good.... Pull out the meaty stuff for BLT's or what ever... and use the fat... If that's all you have... Pork fat from most butchers is hard to get as they don't cut up primals much....

I'm using 1lb of pork butt for every 4lbs of deer meet and using conyeager spices. I'm having trouble with a greasy substance between the casing and the meat and can't get the casing to stick to the meat. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Sounds like your smoking at to high of a temp... creating "fat out" (fat renders out)... tell us more about your procedure from start (grinding/mixing) to finish(smoking temps)

I grind both pork butt and venison with the small plate on my grinder separately and refrigerate. The next day I put the venison and sausage into the power mixer. I mix the spices and water in a separate bowl and slowly add them to the mixer after mixing for 15-20 mins I stuff them into 21mm mahogany casings. I start the electric smoker at 120 to let the casings dry for hour or so. Then jump up to about 140 and add smoke for a couple hours. Then 160 for an hour and finally 170 until I get internal temp of 155. I've been pulling them out and letting them sit at room temp until cool and then refrigerate

:welcome1: Buckyshaw!!! Hope this helps 

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curing_salt

 

Yes Lem SHOULD be the same - Make sure it is Cure#1 and NOT Cure#2 

 

You can get this at Butcher packer, The sausage maker or your local butcher shop. 

 

A full smoker is a happy smoker

What is the shelf life in brown paper bag? And can I extend it on a seal a meal?
post #33 of 35
the brown paper bag is only temporary (a day or 2).. it helps to dry the sticks and also helps for color... Yes.. vacuum seal and freeze for longer life ...
