    Hey Y'all from Alabama! I decided to dedicate my entire first deer this season to sausage. It started as a fresh sausage project, but I quickly started craving some smoke. Before I knew it I had accumulated all the tools I thought I would need (along with enough Amazon boxes for a nice bonfire), and found myself here in search of the knowledge I so desperately need. I have read myself crosseyed, but that has only led to more confusion, so I ask for your patience as I bombard the board with a thousand questions haha. I look forward to making some new friends!

    Hey there I'm not too far away here from Florida.
    Last year I made my first smoked deer sausage and it was great. I did it on a vertical drum smoker. I only did about 20lbs.
    Are you planning on smoking it all at one time or freeze it fresh to smoke in smaller batches later?
    Congratulations on your deer! I unfortunately did not get one this year.

    Actually both. I made some fresh breakfast sausage and then I made two batches to be smoked, one regular and one Andouille. We go through a great deal of the stuff so I wanted to be sure and have it ready to go whenever the need arose. We are headed down to FL Sunday to spend a few days, I love it down there!

    Sound like you got it going on with the sausage. I just tried some links a friend made over the weekend. He did 20# venison, 4# Boston butt, and 2# bacon. Seasoned with salt, pepper, sage, garlic. I grilled some last night. It was pretty good.
    I go to Alabama quite often as well and like the country side.
    Getting ready for some winter fishing here now that hunting is over for me.
