Summer Sausage Questions

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by mj-air23, Mar 24, 2008.

  1. I am planning on making some venison salami this weekend. A couple questions I have are: Do I fill and use my water pan when smoking the salami and after I bring salami up to temp, how long do you dunk it in the water bath for? Are there any set times and temps in the smoking proceedure? Thanks for the help.

    As long as you have good low temp regulation without the pan you don't need it, but remember not to go too high in temps- you'll cook the fat out of the sausage. As far as the bath, just long enough to drop the temps down below 90 or so. If it's not cured, chill all the way to 40, and watch your smoking time between 40 and 140.

  4. I am only making a 15 pound batch. I am going to make it with high temp cheddar and jalepeno. I will also be doing some country syle ring sausage and some venison bacon. I want to get all the venison taken care of before things start to warm up around here.
