    Been MIA for a while been working away from home. Time to clean out the freezer so decided to make some summer sausage from my daughters deer from last year. Used Excalibur premix for this batch. Turned out really well last time. Sorry for the crappy pictures!

     20 pounds of venison, jalapenosps, and cheese.


    5 pounds of fresh ground pork


    Mixed up and ready to go. 5 pounds of cheese and 3 jars of diced jalapenos.


    Ready for stuffing. 3 pound chubs


    Ready for the smoker tomorrow. 100% chance of rain,. May have to wait til Saturday


    Can see the peppers thru the casings. I sure hope it turns out ok.


    Pictures from the smoker to follow hopefully tomorrow.. Thanks for looking. RTR!

    It was my daughters first deer and Jerry was gracious enough to let her hunt at his place. She is was 15. Now she thinks she wants to archery hunt. [​IMG] Not quite the same up in a tree than a nice shooting house!

    Yes, all looks real good...plenty of Japs seems like. Is that hi temp cheese?? and if so how do you like it? I've heard mixed reviews on price vs quality vs not worth it and am curious for my own future use......Willie

    Chef this is the first time I've tried it on my on so will see how it turns out. I know there was some summer sausage made at the North West Florida gathering a couple of years back that had the high temp cheese and it was good. The last time I did some snack sticks with cheese I just diced up a block. Didn't melt down but my sausage smoker only goes to 180.
     
  10. It should be good.[​IMG]

    Happy smoken.

    Rain is done and in she goes. 2 amazing smokers filled with hickory and pecan. Started it at 100 degrees for an hour with no smoke. Pid controller should bump 10 degrees every hour until it gets to 180 and then hold it there. will pull it at 155. Should be about a 12 pack from now :biggrin:
