I got my doe this weekend. First time I have shot a deer in 15 years. I want to do some Venison summer sausage. I bought an "home kit" being that this is my first go at it it. The Himountain summer sausage kit. It calls for 24lbs of deer meat and 6lbs of ground pork. I want to do this without pork if I can. I bought a bunch of ground beef 73/27. I thought I could mix this. I need to know thoughts on subbing out the pork. Also, The kit has 2" casings in it. I have no pliers. I figured I could eBay some bull-nosed pliers and clips to seal the end...what size clips do you recommend? I would be willing to forgo the KIT if somebody has a good venison recipe the would be willing to share. I plan on smoking the sausages in my smoker. Thanks for any help on this you guys would be wiling to give.
