My local butcher makes us a smoked sausage with our deer meat that is very good but his prices are starting to get very high. I asked him if he will sell me some of his seasoning mix but he won't. He did say that he makes it him self and it's very simple and mentioned black pepper and paprika. Looking through ryteks book I only found 2 recipes that call for paprika. I found a recipe for semi-dry cured kielbasa that is very simple and contains black Pepper, paprika, garlic, dextrose , corn syrup solids and insta cure. I know that in the sausage I have made it has that "tang" to it so I'm pretty sure the dextrose is used but what is corn syrup solids for? And can something else be used in place of it?
