i was just wondering if anybody else has a venison stack stick recipe they would like to share...

i have searched and only come up with one other one and was wondering what you guys/gals use

thanks for any help
i actually picked up a venison sausage cookbook today at half priced books, have not looked thru it but if I find one in there I'll post it....
thank you very much...

i actually got an email from someone who wanted a recipe so i thought i would post it on here to get some results
no problem, I don't hunt but the book was cheap and has alot of recipes in it and can always sub's beef......

here is one, they don't actually have any "snack stick" recipes, but this is a pepperoni one that would probably work...

8 lbs venison cubed
2 lbs pork fat cubed
3 level tablespoons morton tender quick
3/4 cup powdered milk
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground thyme
3 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon crushed oregano leaves
1 teaspoon whole anise seeds

grind meat fine, mix tenderquick and let "tack up", combine powdered milk with enough water to make a fine paste, add remaining ingreadients, mix into meat and regrind, then stuff into casings. cover and let sit in fridge smoke 2 to 4 hours until internal is 160.......

might work, might not......

these are from "the venison sausage cookbook" by Harold Webster, Jr.
thank you for these... the second recipe looks like the one a family member use to have... again thanks

took me awhile to figure out what fermento
yea the second was titled as a sweet and spicey one, sounded good.....I don't have any fermento around here but honestly you could leave it out but some of the time on the holding temps is just for it to develop the tang....could always probably cut the time and use sausage tang in place........(ascorbic acid.....ummmm you know citric acid)
but I wanted to make sure I passed on recipe as stated in the book.... is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
