I have a lot of venison to convert into sausages this year. Problem is that my go-to recipes are nearly all pork sausage. I can cold or hot smoke and have a 5# stuffer, casings of many sizes, pink salt, NFDM, spices, etc. I'm looking for a couple of simple and good recipes:
Summer sausage: Looking for a smoked summer sausage recipe that uses black peppercorns and mustard seed, not too dry.
Pepperoni: Looking to make this year round, so both beef and venison variants if spices vary. Since I am not equipped to make a true dried pepperoni, pepperoni sticks or American style semi-dry would work.
Venison-bacon: I have a good supply of cured cold smoked bacon ends and have toyed with the idea of grinding some into venison. But I don't know what flavors would enhance that experience.
And another family request is a clone recipe for the Kowalski Mild Hunter's Sausage. These and pepperoni are the only sausage my daughter will eat. I have tried a few times but haven't come close to the real thing.
Thanks in advance!
