Summer Sausage w/Cheese/Jalapeno/Spanish Olives/ & Pimento ( QVIEW - QVIEW - QVIEW)

Okay, weather is cold today, so I cleaned out the freezer from last years hunting and did 30# of venison and pork mix 50/50.

I had already ground it once last year , so a slow defrost in the walk-in for a couple of days and here we go. Mixed the meats together and added Riteks recipe with a little twist, always wanted to do a little different for presentation so I bought a bunch of spanish olives, spend a couple hours slicing them up and set aside. Mixed the seasonings with a cup of water and blended well using a 1/2" drill and a mud mixer like I did last year. I added a little Ms. Dash Spicy Hot to it, covered and let it rest for the night in the cooler. dang I am glad I made that cooler last year. Sure comes in handy. Anyway, got up this morning, added the no melt cheddar and a couple cups of the olives and hand mixed till I thought it looked right. Stuffed in 20" casings averaging about 3 lbs per casing. Let 'em hang an hour or so and into the MES40 for the LONG SMOKE/. Believe me., This happened last year same way and I should have known better loading it up so full. I Should have put half in the 40and the other half in the MES 30 ,.but I didn't.!3 Hours later here we are. Finally done. Started off at 130 BC the MES temp is off about 20*d, raised it to 140 then to 160, then to 170 and wait.,Lots of Steam and added smoke from Todds pellet smoker..I gave it 5 hrs light hickory & Alder. I had to eventually bump it to 190+ for an hour to get over the stall not knowing if I was going to render the fat,,all the time taking into consideration the t-stats are off...thats why I put in 2 of the Mavs to monitor the IT. Got-erDone and into the cold water bath a bit ago and now hanging in the garage blooming. Before going to bed in an hour I will transfer into the walk-in at 45* to coast her down and set up. Money shot is tomorrow when I slice it , but here now are the pictures(QVIEW) from today.......

Thank You Sir ! I am going to cut into one this morning to see what it looks and tastes like. Can't wait to see the olives and how they set in the meat.

Okay, I just posted some sliced views at the end of the post. They taste good, could use a little more tang and perhaps a little less fat, this mix was 50/50.
