First summer sausage attempt

Discussion in 'Sausage' started by drno, Mar 24, 2015.

  1. Decided I would give summer sausage a shot after seeing some of the posts on here.  I tried it with a 65/35 mix, (venison/pork shoulder) + a 10 oz block of sharp cheddar and a "spicy garlic" mix I got for xmas...I took some of it to work and it seemed to go over pretty well :)

  7. Nice looking sticks...
  8. Thanks for all the comments! They were really mild, not spicy or garlic tasting at all.  I thought that they could have been a little more even in consistency -- I felt that some of them could have been more cohesive, there seemed to be a very small amount of crumbleness to them in the middle -- but no one else commented on that (or even noticed when I mentioned it).  I was really pleased that the cheese didn't melt, though I had issues with my AMZN pellet didn't quite catch and keep smoking.  Something to address next time I suppose...

    Make sure you have enough airflow to keep the pellets going. Try mixing a little longer, that may help with the texture issue.
