    a full smoker always looks good, great job - can't wait to see a sliced up pic.
     
  6. Sausage is all cut up and packaged. Ready for the freezer. Time to sit back and enjoy an ice cold PBR. Thanks for looking and the comments.

  9. I used a method that a local butcher supply store had on a recipe. Basically you start at 125° for an hour to dry the casings. The up to 135° 1/4 vent open for 1 1/2.Then 145° for an hour. Then increase temp 5° every 30-40 min until u reach internal temp of 155°. Take out and put in an ice bath. I do 10 min. Someone else on here might be able to tell you better how long. I don't know where I came up with 10 minutes I must've read it somewhere. Put in the frigerator for 2 days uncovered. Take out and enjoy. I started at 2:15pm and finished at 12 am. If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask. good luck let me know how it turns out.

    That is how I have been doing it also. I made summer sausage a few weeks ago and with 50lbs of sausage, my smoker did that all by itself just trying catch up. That weekend I started hot water bathing until 152 degrees and liked how it turned out.

    You did a good job...
     
  17. I am a "newbie", but followed this thread because it said "deer".. I guess I must have missed a page or two, or else perhaps you are way more advanced and didn't explain/show some of the details??  Not really "details" just wondering what I am not seeing?  If it is "deer", I am interested in learning.  Have you done venison bacon?  I am still looking for the learning experience of that.

    Do you dry out the jalepenos in an oven before you mix with meat or just cut it up into little piecess and in the meat? I am making some tomorrow. Need advice...Thanks
