Gonna try my hand at SS and was wondering what most of you use as a meat ratio. I've got about 7# of venison to use and a few butts for kielbasi (found a great deal on butts - .75/lb). I was guessing 70/30? I have a pack of Excalibur SS mix to use. Any thoughts on that (good/bad)? Someday when I grow up I'll not use the packaged stuff . Amesphos? Appreciate any help/advise. Thanks.
