Venison sausage or snack sticks.

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 

I think I am ready to get into the sausage making.

 

I have a very old hand crank stuffer and a grinder as old as the stuffer.

 

I have ground venison and 5 lb ground sausage.

 

Can I make anything out of it?  Snack sticks?

 

Thanks.

Sure can - you can make snack sticks or bologna easily  :sausage:  Sounds like you have an old Enterprise lard press/ stuffer - they are pretty tough old machines...

I use a recipe from dales cookbook, a guy out of Wyomissing Pennsylvania for my snack sticks, they are the most amazing snack sticks I've Eaton or made. For bologna I use the pa Dutch country sweet mix from con Yeager, it makes 25 lbs at a time and you need pink cure salt. Kinda everything from pa, haha I think con Yeager spice is from Pittsburgh

Hey Adam,

 

This isn't exactly the question that you asked, but I did want to tell you that I absolutely LOVE Pop's breakfast sausage recipe used to make bulk venison breakfast sausage.  I calculated out his spices on a per weight basis, but dropped the salt down significantly as my husband and I don't like salty sausage.  I've received nothing but compliments on it.  

 

Venison Breakfast Sausage (adapted from Pop's recipe):

80% lean venison/20% pork fat
1.1% pickling salt (calculated based on weight of meat + fat)
.3% ground sage
.3% freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp brown sugar per lb of sausage meat
scant 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes per lb of sausage meat

 

Anyway, didn't answer your question, but hope you have fun with your new toys!

Clarissa

I like browsing their site for spices too, so far only got the rotisserie BBQ chicken one and it was pretty good.

No. What we have made isn't sweet. The amish in Belleville makes it.

Ah ok - that's not really spicy is it? Sort of just an even flavored deer bologna?
