    I have been using this seasoning for several years now and it is my favorite. I use it to make venison sausage and then smoke it. I usually add some of my own seasonings, like pepper corns, mustard seed and chopped jalapenos. It turns out great every time. The product arrived quickly.

    I have used this seasoning to make venison sausage for several years now. This makes a great sausage all on it own and is a good base to start with if you want to add your own flavor. I would highly recommend this to anyone that makes their own sausage.

    Use the Summer Sausage Seasoning to make Venison Summer Sausage. My friends go crazy for it. Some of my friends who never eat venison will only eat mine.

  24. Kip M (verified owner)

    Excellent flavor, I haven’t purchased a bad seasoning pack yet. Keep up the good work.

  25. Dennis Gilliam (verified owner)

    I have been using this season for many years to make venison summer sausage with no problems. Everyone that tries the sausage loves it. If I order to much and have some left over at the end of the year, I put it in the freezer and use it the next, with same results.
    Don’t forget to order the instant cure when ordering.

  26. Clayton Swalstad (verified owner)

  30. Rick Stemm (verified owner)

    The seasoning is great and tastes exactly what Summer Sausage should taste like. The directions could have been more detailed. I used 100% pork cut from the hog. It needed a lot more fat. The directions also state to smoke for 3-4 hours at 120-130, then raise the smoker temp to 165F and cook until the temp reaches 152F. This took forever!! I had to increase the temperature of the smoker to get it done so I could go to bed. But had the instructions indicated that it would take 10-15 hours, I would have smoked it from 6-10pm, then gone to bed. I am looking forward to trying it again using what I learned. Once I figure it out, it will be delicious!

    Everything we buy is so delicious…

  33. Bryan C (verified owner)

    Great flavor. Our first time making it. Recommend adding encapsulated citric acid for the nice tangy flavor.

    We use your Summer Sausage seasoning in our all grass-fed beef Summer Sausage that we sell at Farmers Markets. The people absolutely love it and come back for more. Keep up the good work

  39. Terry S. (verified owner)

    This summer sausage mix turned out excellent, very good flavor with that required tang. Only suggestions are for the directions for the recipe; for 10 lbs. of meat it says to use 2 tsp of curing salt and 8 oz. of seasoning. It means 8 oz. by weight not volume. Also, the recipe says to smoke 3-4 hours at 120 degrees then raise the temp to 165 degrees until the internal temp reaches 152 degrees. This, unexpectedly, took 13 hours to achieve 152. I work in a lab and borrowed two very accurate temperature probes to monitor both the smoker temp and meat temp, the problem was not the smoker temp.

    We have made 30 lbs. of summer sausage so far and the seasoning blend has been very good. Very pleased with this product. Will purchase this again.

  47. man of Stihl (verified owner)

    This seasoning makes the best summer sausage ever. I mix it with my venison and pork trimmings then smoke with hickory at 165 degrees for about eight hours. In fact I made thirty pounds of it this past weekend. This time I also added a pound of bacon along with the pork trimmings to add even more flavor. This wont last long with friends, family and neighbors eating it. Nothing even comes close,

  48. eric (verified owner)

    This seasoning makes a truly delicious venison summer sausage!! I have been adding 2.5lbs of hi-temp pepper jack cheese to each 25lb batch – this stuff turns out so good it’s addictive!!

  49. Anonymous (verified owner)

    This is hands down THE BEST blend of summer sausage seasoning I’ve ever used and I’ve tried all the big brands.. There is something in this blend that makes the sausage tangy and just absolutely fantastic. I’ll never use anything else and its reasonably priced too!

  62. Kent Richardson (verified owner)

    Haven’t used yet but have used a lot of other products and they have all been good

  63. Marty Mayernick (verified owner)

    Came quickly, easy directions. I have my 1st batch of venison Summer Sausage in the smoker as I type, so I haven’t tasted it yet. If it sucks I’ll add an update, but I doubt I will have to, it smelled great as I was stuffing it into the casings. I di chop a bunch of jalapenos and added that along with high temp cheddar.

  64. MarkThompson (verified owner)

    Take the guess work out, this turned out wonderful!

    does 8 oz mean dry measure or 8oz weight

    Q does 8 oz mean dry measure or 8oz weight answer now

    Always measure the sausage ingredients by weight, and never by volume.

  2. I see that the Summer Sausage Seasoning has Fermento. After I have filled my fibrous casings, do I need to wait 24 hours before I smoke them because of the Fermento? The directions do not say.

    Q I see that the Summer Sausage Seasoning has Fermento. After I have filled my fibrous casings, do ...... Read more answer now

    For best results when using ORIGINAL FERMENTO, you should wait 24 hrs after stuffing before smoking. If using the TSM BLEND FERMENTO, that step is not necessary. You can stuff and smoke immediately.

  4. Do I need to add fermento if I'm going to be cooking my sausage?

    Q Do I need to add fermento if I'm going to be cooking my sausage? answer now

    FERMENTO is an optional product to add to semi-dry sausages that adds "tang" that mimics the flavor of fermented sausages.

    So, no. You do not need to add it.
