    Is there a rule of thumb on how much dry milk or even dry butter milk to use in summer sausage? Is more better - less doesn't do any good?   20# batch,  Is it also used in German sausage brats,ect.?

    I use 1 cup NFDM to 5lbs of meat, Never used anything other than that,, Never used dry buttermilk either

    Good luck and let us know 

    A full smoker is a happy smoker

    I use NFDM in most of my sausages.  I don't exceed 1 cup per 5 pounds, but I have gone as low as 1/2 cup.

    By weight, you want to use 1%-3% of the weight of the meat.
