What do I need to take the internal temperature of beef summer sausage to?  Is it the same as venison summer sausage 152 degrees?

Slowly take it up to 152 and then get them in some ice water. Or bring them up to around 145 and put them in hot water until 152 then ice bath. Keep your smoker and hot water temp under 175.

What if you have pork fat added to it?  Does it have to be 160 then or is 150-152 still okay?

Personally, I like it best once it hits 98.6*.
