  8. mark pickler (verified owner)

    This particular spice mixture has a definite Italian taste. I always use a little more than the recipe on the container calls for but has worked for me for years this is a favorite

    Thank you for the timely processing of my order for sausage makings. I love your products and your service.

    We’ll we had a small sausage making party last night. I decided to make Sweet Italian Sausage for my first go round because I could buy the seasoning and it would be a little easier. After we ground the sausage and mixed the seasonings we fried a few small samples. It was very salty and I was afraid I might have wasted my money but went ahead and made the sausages. They turned out great, I guess the trick is you have to give the seasonings time to meld into the meat. We really enjoyed it and 10 # of pork shoulder made about 40 sausages about 6 or 7 inches long

  12. Jose Garcia (verified owner)

    The spices I got are amazing. I only wish I would get a catalog as I’ve asked several times. It’s unfortunate, I will be using the sausage maker on a limited basis as I’ve found another company that cares about service.

  13. L Whitlock (verified owner)

    I was overwhelmingly surprised and pleased with this product. I honestly had no intention of making sausage. What I was looking for was an alternative to spices found on store shelves. I ended up getting a big bonus when I purchased this product. Best spaghetti sauce I’ve ever made. This product is well worth the money.

  14. bill mclaughlin (verified owner)

    Made the sausage yesterday most people enjoyed it .

  15. Linda Krasowski (verified owner)

    Your products are very good. I will continue to ‘re order your products.

    What is lacking is your customer service. Four times I was told that someone would call or email regarding a gift card my husband had ‘received and was due to expire. I needed to find out about this gift certificate by 12/24/2016. Unfortunately I was never contacted & will not recommend gift certificates be purchased from you.

  17. Brian P (verified owner)

  19. Stephen Streng (verified owner)

    Great on the grill! Awesome flavor. I like to add a little
    Fennel seed to the mix when I make it.

  20. Bruce Grange (verified owner)

    Always a favorite around the grill with the grand-kids and most adults. i like to try and get as much water in this mix as i can to make it easier to chew for the little ones.

    I bought a bunch of SausageMaker products as I’m spooling up and learning to Smoke and BBQ. So far, everything is scrumptious and as advertised. The 3,2,1 method produces great food in both the grill and the electric smoker. Now I need to get aboard some of the forums and learn the nitty gritty details.
    Thanks ! CmdrDick

    We have ordered from Sausage Maker before and haven’t had any problems before. This order however has been a little frustrating. When we opened our order we found an item we didn’t order. It was not on the invoice. The sweet Italian sausage seasoning was on the invoice but now in the box. I have called twice. Once each of the next two days. They made a note of the problem and was sending to a different dept. They said they would call, but they are short handed right now. Never heard from them. Ended up having to reorder the seasoning and pay shipping that was almost as much as seasoning. Now A week later and still haven’t heard from them.

  32. james campbell (verified owner)

    Really good seasoning. I like a hare more fennel, and I mean just a hair. Everyone liked it.

  33. ronald sersen (verified owner)

  43. Anonymous (verified owner)

    So much seasoning that I was thinking I might have made a mistake if it’s no good. WRONG it has great flavor.
    I will buy more when this is gone.

    Excellent combination of spice and great taste.

  46. James Skidmore (verified owner)

    As always, everything about my order was excellent.

  47. TomW (verified owner)

    I had been using LEM seasonings for the last 5 or 6 years. I’m glad I tried The Sausage Maker seasonings, I like them better and are about half the cost. Will continue to use. I made a 25 pound batch with half pork butt and half venison.

  48. LJ Strassel (verified owner)

    I have used this product in the past with great results. Great reviews by people that have eaten the seasonings.

  49. Smith (verified owner)

    I’ve been dealing with this company for over 20 years and have never had a problem and the seasoning is good and is the price is great.

  56. Jim Vojtek (verified owner)

    I use this seasoning on a regular basis. It’s spot on! It keeps my product consistent. At times I add some crushed red pepper flakes to amp it up a bid. Everyone loves it and I always tell them to use The Sausage Maker for their sausage making supplies.

  57. Ernest Prince (verified owner)

    Excellent flavor over the top when you add the cheddar cheese

    Great, just like I make it!

  61. John M Howard (verified owner)

    A well balanced seasoning that provides a well balanced blend for th “Just Right” flavor for Italian cuisine. I would recommend this product for any who make their own sausage and like sweet sausage with pasta or in a sandwich with bell peppers and onions. Excellent choice!!

  62. M491 (verified owner)

    We have been using this mix for years and then applying “our family recipe” additions to it. Essentially we add more fennel to taste and the results are great. We even have a friend from Rome living in teh US for years who says this tastes like real Italian sausage. You can’t get a better compliment than that.

  64. John Marshall (verified owner)

  65. Ronald LaPierre (verified owner)

    It is a great product although it can be very salty. I filter some of the salt out of this product and add some of my own seasonings..

  66. Gabriel Greco (verified owner)

  67. donna Stoliker (verified owner)

    the products are great, the price of the products are great. The cost of shipping is ridiculous.

  68. Charles Zimmers (verified owner)

    Love the flavor. I will be ordering more products

  69. Charles Damler (verified owner)

    I added a little more italian seasoning to it. brought out a little more spice. But good on it’s own.

  70. Deb (verified owner)

    Mixed it with beef to make some hamburgers. Wonderful! Looking forward to using it in other recipes.

  71. Jessica Baran (verified owner)

  72. Andrew Widay (verified owner)

    This sweet Italian sausage is an awesome way to turn deer into dozens of other recipes. You can grill it or add it to spaghetti sauce. My favorite though is venison lasagna with this homemade sweet Italian sausage and Classico spicy sausage sauce.

  73. Chrissy Hilt (verified owner)

    Nice flavor and prompt service

  74. Dennis Halligan (verified owner)

    We enjoy using the seasoning blend which delivers a consistent quality sausage with an excellent flavor. The recipe outlined on the packaging it is perfect for a taste and very easy to follow. We have also found this to be true with the chorizo seasoning blend which we also enjoyed. I highly recommend both products.

  75. Joseph Flores (verified owner)

    I have used sausage maker seasonings for several years. The best thing about their seasoning is the consistency of all of the Seasonings I have used.
    Also, customer service with telephone and email is far above and most professional than others.

    Can’t wait to try this with our venison!

  83. David Emmons (verified owner)

    I don’t believe you will find a better Italian sausage mix than this one. 5 stars, 2 thumbs up, absolutely delicious.

  84. Mark Schultz

    I ordered this mix back on 9/25/2021 and found the mix to be way too salty. Why not leave the salt out of the mixes? It would cut down on shipping costs and I can add kosher salt myself. That way if the sausage has too little or too much salt I have nobody but myself to blame. After leaving my negative review online for a couple months it has now been deleted by The Sausage Maker. Have you noticed all reviews appear to be 4 or 5 stars? If the company isn’t going to post all reviews they have a basic honesty problem with their management or employees.

  85. John

    I tried this seasoning for mild Italian sausage and found it to be way too salty. In the 1# 8oz. example I used more than 1# of the mix was just salt. I have taken to making my own blend without all the salt.

  86. davemitchell9

    Provides a very nice and mild italian sausage flavoring. I read some reviews that said it was salty. When I looked in the jar, I did notice that the salt was separating from the rest of the seasonings making it difficult to get a good mixture, so I just ran the whole jar through a bullet food processor to grind it together fine and put it back in the jar This worked out very well, no salty taste.
