Summer Sausage

Post by Mint »

I made my first batch of Summer Sausage a couple of days ago and it came out great. I used 15lbs of wild hog meat, 5lbs of wild hog fat and 5lbs of venison. I used excalibur's BBQ Habanero seasonings which I ordered from Waltons. I followed their recipe they have posted but i chose to not use citric acid and just let the meat sit over night. I used my Kamado Joe smoker for one batch to start off and then finished in the oven. Had a tough time keeping the kamado joe under 175 degrees since my fire box is cracked ( kamado joe guarantees for life so I sent them a picture and the same day they sent me a replacement )and that was letting in air. I was a little worried since some fat was dripping out but they came out amazing. I did another batch strictly in the oven and they came out the same way.

I'm going to make another batch in the next couple of weeks, does anyone have a suggestion for a different seasoning that they really like?

Sounds great! I love summer sausage, but the habanero might be too hot for me.

We had venison roast mac and cheese for supper.

I cooked the roast in the Instapot with some water, fresh ground black pepper, and a couple of beef bouillon cubes. I then cooked the pasta in the water that the roast cooked in.

I used extra sharp cheddar, queso blanco, and cojack cheeses. It tastes great.

"Hot sticks" are our favorite and we use 100% ground venison. Never much liked the pork and fat added but to each their own.

If anyone would like to try them, here is the recipe. (for those of us that like them hot, we add red pepper flakes to taste)

They freeze well but in all honesty, they don't last long around here.
