    Summer Sausage Conflicting Recipes Using Tender Quick

    My neighbor is planning on making Summer Sausage with some of last years elk and venison. I know too well about the trustworthiness of some online sites, but we're seeing an odd trend repeat itself when it comes to amounts of Tender Quick (he prefers TQ to Cure #1). Many recipes call for 1...

    Help! Can I salvage my summer sausage?

    Help please! We made our first batch of jalapeño cheddar summer sausage. We use high temp cheese, used pork fat, and had a good fill in all of our casings. When we initially smoked, the temp didn’t get as high as we wanted, it was only about 140. We upped the temp to 200 (that’s the temp we used...

    what's fatting out?

    Summer sausage gone bad

    So I made my first ever batch of summer sausage with a proven good recipe from a friend of mine. The only thing I changed was instead of using liquid smoke I decided to smoke it myself. Minus a 15 min window where the temps jumped to 250 degrees, the smoking went well. Kept it between 190-210...

    2019 Venison Summer Sausage

    On Friday, I mixed and stuffed 50 lbs of venison summer sausage with jalapeños, cheddar, and habanero cheese. Also did a 25 lbs plain batch for my wife and kids since they don’t like spice. I get my seasoning from a local butcher shop and for the spicy batch, I add minced garlic, cayenne...

    Summer Sausage - Vension & Cheese

    Time for some summer sausage. Maybe it would be more appropriately called Winter or Spring sausage given the time of the year. I haven't made this in a few years so with my venison party coming up in about a month I thought I would make a ten pound batch. Here is the mix with added high temp...

    OFG Summer Sausage, Step by Step and Video

    I was out of Summer Sausage and was making a batch. I decided to do a video on the smoke. I started with 500 grams (1.1 pound) of lean ground beef (you can use any game you like) and 500 grams (1.1 pound) of cubed pork shoulder. I put them in the freezer for about 1 1/2 hours to freeze the...

    Summer Sausage Definition

    Hello all, browsing and searching through the forum here (I'm a newbie, though experienced professionally) I noticed that many of the Summer Sausage recipes I see posted here don't include cultures at all. Those that buy pre-blended spice mixes probably have it included already (I suspect). Now...

    OFG Summer Sausage

    I have had trouble making a summer sausage that I like since I started smoking. Don't get me wrong, all the spice mixes and recipes I tried made good summer sausage but it isn't what I remembered from when I was a kid. So, I have been experimenting for a couple of years to get what I remember...
