10 lbs. Recipe

    • 8 lbs. Venison & 2 lbs. pork trimmings or 10 lbs. pork butts
    • 2 level teaspoon Instacure #1
    • 8 oz. Summer Sausage seasoning

    Grind the Venison through a 3/16″ grinder plate. Use a 3/4″ plate for the pork fat or trimmings.

    Transfer all the ground meat and fat trimmings into a meat mixer or tub. Then, thoroughly mix in all the ingredients.

    Stuff the summer sausage mixture into fibrous casings 61 mm or beef middle casings.

    Preheat the smokehouse to 120-130 °F. Once ready, introduce a heavy smudge by adding wood chips or chunks. Allow it to smoke at this temperature for 3-4 hours.

    After this initial smoking phase, raise the temperature to 165 °F. Continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 152 °F.

    Once cooked, rinse the sausages with cold water until the internal temperature drops to at least 120 °F.

    Finally, transfer the sausages to the refrigerator and allow them to rest for a minimum of 24 hours.

    Allergens: Milk, Soybean oil used as a mixing aid.

    *Casing capacity depends on meat/fill density, size/lengths of links or loops and how tightly casings being filled.

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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!!
