Hello from Michigan

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

My name is Cindy and we live in south western Michigan.  We are avid hunters and have been paying a meat processor for venison summer sausage for years.  This year we decided to try our own and bought a Smoke Hollow electric smoker.  Gotta say our first attempt was a disaster and wasted 6 lbs of good meat.  Looking for some help and ideas.

are so many different ways to make great Q We all have our own taste.

 

Their are a lot of venison sausage recipies on here. Most of the beef recipies will

also work

Happy smoken.

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

 

We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

 

If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

 

If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!

Hey Cindy, Welcome from a fellow Michigander. Glad to have you on the site. you will learn a lot from the sausage guys here. They are probably the most passionate of all the groups on the forum. Good luck, and take pics of your next attempt.

Welcome to the forums, Cindy!  This is the best place I know for sharing ideas on smoking, grilling, curing, etc.  There are plenty of friendly, knowledgeable folks who really enjoy helping one another.  Just ask when you need help and someone here will have the answer.
