Big hello from Minnesota

    I just wanted to say hello to everyone. I don't have much experience about smoking and bbq but I have studied it a lot. I've been known to produce a pretty nice boston butt once in a while and I worked for a bbq joint for 5 months. My big passion coming up is game processing. I'm taking the middle man out of deer processing this winter and doing it myself. I'm just wondering what sausage mixes people have tried and what worked best for them?

    Grab a seat and a cold one. Ask lots of questions. The friendly folks here will answer all. Please be sure to check out the sausage forum.

    Have fun, and do good.

    Welcome to SMF. It's always good to eliminate the middle man mac and I'm sure somebody had a good venison sausage recipe around here. I had some wonderful venison sausage made by a locker years back that was sooooo good. Good luck with yours!!!

  7. Welcome, Mac. I'll have to go get the recipes my family (all from Minnesota, by the way) used when I was a kid - the sausage was awesome, as I recall.

    I've also made the decision to process my own game again, starting this fall, elk and deer cooperating, of course. The guy I use makes an excellent product, but he's quite expensive.

    Where in MN are you from? I was born in Little Falls; dad's family farmed near Pierz; mom's family is from Grand Marais.
