    I am looking to get into the smoking way of life, and have a few deer awaiting to be cut up and next to them I have some bratwurst and summer sausage seasoning, and a new smoker, sausage stuffer, and the whole works...but since I have never done it before, I was wondering if anyone can give me some pointers on what i should be looking for, and what I should be doing I would greatly appriciate it. I am currently in La Crosse, WI.

    Great to have you on board. So, you hqave some deer to cut up.

    Well, I almost didn't need to cut up the last one. It was about 2 inches in front of my car, Friday night, before I got stopped.

    Mmmmmm, woulda tasted good, but been kinda expensive.

    I know you will have fun and enjoy yourself here on the site.

    Welcome Bowhunter -

    I have family in Nekosa and Stevens Point and a good friend in La Crosse. Gee is Santa still wearing Green and Gold or has it changed yet to Red and white? [​IMG]

    I'd be happy to help in anyway if you can give me a bit more information about the type of equipment your using. For example:

    What kind of smoker? Coal, electric, wood, propane? Vertical, horizontal? Brands and models help too.

    What kind of sausage stuffer are you using? Grinder/stuffer? Vertical? Horizontal? Again Brands and models help.

    What kind of sausage did you make premixed spice or from a recipe?

    What kind of casings? Collagen? Hog? Sheep?

    Hiya Bowhunter and welcome to SMF. I was born and raised in WI and went to school at U-W Lacrosse. I was just telling DeeJay the other day about pushing my bike up Grandads Bluff and then riding it down after resting at the Alpine Inn. [​IMG]

    If your bratwurst spices give you good results please let us know what they are. I could kill for a good brat with saurkraut. And would you believe they have this WHITE cheese here on the east coast that they call cheddar. [​IMG]
