I think I am ready to get into the sausage making.

I have a very old hand crank stuffer and a grinder as old as the stuffer.

I have ground venison and 5 lb ground sausage.

Can I make anything out of it?  Snack sticks?

Thanks.

Sure can - you can make snack sticks or bologna easily

  Sounds like you have an old Enterprise lard press/ stuffer - they are pretty tough old machines...
 
Ha.  I dont know the name of it but we pressed lard and made fresh sausage with it.
 
Would love a good bologna recipe.
 
I use a recipe from dales cookbook, a guy out of Wyomissing Pennsylvania for my snack sticks, they are the most amazing snack sticks I've Eaton or made. For bologna I use the pa Dutch country sweet mix from con Yeager, it makes 25 lbs at a time and you need pink cure salt. Kinda everything from pa, haha I think con Yeager spice is from Pittsburgh
 
Have a link?  I have pick salt and maybe it is close to what I have made from the Amish.
 
Hey Adam,

This isn't exactly the question that you asked, but I did want to tell you that I absolutely LOVE Pop's breakfast sausage recipe used to make bulk venison breakfast sausage.  I calculated out his spices on a per weight basis, but dropped the salt down significantly as my husband and I don't like salty sausage.  I've received nothing but compliments on it.  

Venison Breakfast Sausage (adapted from Pop's recipe):

80% lean venison/20% pork fat
1.1% pickling salt (calculated based on weight of meat + fat)
.3% ground sage
.3% freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp brown sugar per lb of sausage meat
scant 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes per lb of sausage meat

Anyway, didn't answer your question, but hope you have fun with your new toys!

Thanks Clarissa.

They are NOT new. LOL.   They were my grandpaps and I remember using them when I was a little kid.

I am just new to makin sausage.
 
No. What we have made isn't sweet. The amish in Belleville makes it.
 
Yup. Mild and meat flavored.
