I am from Calif. Husband is avid hunter. This year when duck hunting he breasted out quite a few ducks and saved it. We took it to a meat place that makes sausage etc. A friend used him and was very happy. It was great, but I decided I wanted to learn how to do it myself so next year we could try our own. So far I made a summer sausage. I used beef/pork to practice because I don't want to waste any elk or deer until I figure this out. Now I want to make pepperoni type snack sticks. I am trying to figure out how long to cook them in the oven at 180 or 200 etc. The large summer sausage was 10 hrs, although next time I may do just a bit less. It was 160 degrees. Maybe it was me, but seemed a tad dry.
I certainly don't want to overcook snack sticks. Looking for suggestions.
