Made some sausages!
« on: April 25, 2011, 10:48:08 AM »
Friday night was a real blast, NOT!  I decided to make some sausages, jerky and smoke some trout, not smart all in one night!   :roll:

Anyways, I made about 30 lbs of fresh italian sausage from my deer, it turned out damn good, i have an older style of sausage stuffer so that was tricky, but luckily i had a buddy there to help me out.  I used my kitchen aid grinder attachment for the first time, and i have to say i was seriuosly impressed with it.

Since this was my first attempt at sausage by myself, without the supervision of my stepdad who is a pro.  I just used the hi mountain italian sausage kit, and left the cure out of it, because i didn't plan on smoking any of it.  when doing sausage or jerky, hi mountain is the way to go, the sausage kit came with the seasoning, cure, and casings.  all i had to do was add deer and pork butt. 

i also made a few pounds of jerky and smoked a few trout. 

the freezer is now full, i took a bunch of duck out of the fridge to smoke, any suggestions for a brine???



i wasn't real good at getting consistent length and girth till the last 15 lbs.



here are the trout, the skin peeled right off and the meat flaked right off the bone, i used a brown sugar rosemary brine and smoked with Mesquite wood chips, the fish tastes just like jerky, it was pretty damn good for my first attempt at smoking fish.

 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 You done good, Dune!

I've smoked a lot of fish in the past, haven't smoked any for some years . I used to smoke carp, buffalo, and catfish.

We used to butcher hogs at home and make our own stuffed sausage. The old stuffers work good but it is hard to retain same diameter sausage.

Looking good! O0 O0 O0 O0
To you gutless cowards and scumbags, who are trying to lie and rewrite history. To those out to commit genocide on the Southern people with your destruction of Confederate monuments and your attacks on Southern heritage and pride. Be happy for now. Because someday when that civil war you wanted starts. I will find you. And I will kill you.

The last time i made sausage back in April, i made 24 lbs and we just finished the last one.  So i made more sausage friday night.  Luckily i had my bro inlaw around to help with this batch.  We punched out 20 lbs in 3 hours, i have it down to a science these days.  I usually use about 2/3 pork butt to 1/3 lean deer, but this time i decided to make them meatier and went 1/2 and 1/2 i wasn't dissappointed.  I made italian sausage, red wine, cheesers, and beer brats, i have about 5 lbs of each.

Looks right tastey!  O0
 
That feller holding the tray is pretty scary looking though.  :o 
 
So where's the free samples?  :knuppel2

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Yeah, i don't like the artificial or collagen casings, they just taste off to me especially when grilled.  hog casings do smell like ass though, thats for sure.
