Summer Sausage complete - Page 2

post #21 of 38
I used the ac leggs summer sausage mix added 1 cup of water dried jalapeño & high temperature frozen jack cheese. Meat was just 80 20 ground beef no pork added. Room temp for 2 hrs, 100 - 120 with smoke 2 hrs, 120 - 140 3 hrs, finished in oven @ 175 to 152 it, ice bath then fridge...think that is everything.

With the 80/20 beef only, I'm betting the 1 cup of water may have been too much. But, how many pounds of the beef did you use?

Any thoughts from the others?

As an after thought, define too moist. Fat or just moist?

I think it's fat not moist now that you say that.

If you eat it cold and can kind of feel a fat film in your mouth, that's probably it. Next time, try a leaner meat and see how it goes.

But, take notes, regardless of what we think, we can't remember what all we did last time.

One of the main things the forum exists for is learning. I learn things regularly here!

Seems like every time I read about sausage here, your name pops up, Cranky! The last sausage recipe I tried also called for NFDM for a "binder". I understand a little now why!
Kudos to you sir. It makes me want to try Summer Sausage, whether I have venison or not😊

Wow! Thanks for the points!

Hmm, is my wife correct, I talk too much? biggrin.gif

There are a few things in life that I am passionate about; family, teaching, and sausage! BBQ as well, but I'd rather make sausage than cook a brisket.

Well if you want make sausage don't bother. Cranky B has cornered the market on all the casings and they no longer ship anywhere but his house.

Reminds me of the The Great onion Corner!

CrankyB are you hoarding pig guts, lol!

So does this mean that if I ask CB where he gets his casings, and he tells me, I could be prosecuted for Insider Trading?
