    141 pounds of sausage made....1st round of smoking 3/30/15

    Dad did 30 pounds of fresh and 40 pounds to be smoked. The fresh is added to gumbo and what not. Ingredients the same on both (salt, red pepper, garlic powder), with the exception of green onions added to the fresh stuff. Ratio was about 60% deer and 40% pork shoulder.

    I did 11 pounds of Memphis Dust Pork Breakfast Sausage. 5 pounds deer and 6 pounds bacon ends. Made little sausages with no casings and plenty patties.

    I also did 20 pounds fresh. 10 pounds had Thyme and minced garlic. The other 10 pounds I 86'd the Thyme and used garlic powder instead of the minced. 50:50 deer and pork shoulder.

    I had 20 pounds for smoking. 50:50 deer and pork shoulder.

    Another 20 pounds for smoking. Same deer to pork ratio with 2 pounds of high temp pepper jack cheese added

    Goodness, Jerod, that sausage weighs way more than I do!

    You sure have some great flavors in it. I'm thinking your wife will go for the patties and little sausages and leave the cased ones to those who don't care about what a casing is.

    Kudos for all that work. Happy eating to you and your family!

        Now that y'all mention it, I made my weight in sausage....

        Since I rarely wrap myself in hog guts, never crossed my mind

      Temp control is really nice when smoking sausage. Thanks to the Pit Barrel, I saw no need for my cheap offset, other than to get converted to gas and use for sausage smoking.

      When you can smell the smoke, but you can't see any, you know it is right. Just did a dry run...

        I'd be really interested in what you did to your COS to convert to gas. I've got one that I don't use too!

        I palpate approximately 15,750 chickens per day (35 per minute), 3.8 million-ish per year. Carpal tunnel is a way of life.

      Looks great Jerod. It's a lot of work, but always great to have all that product in the freezer when you're done!

          Something I got from Meathead to check out. It is one of the sausage recipes and he and Chef Ryan have put together. They got a good list of 'em.

          Are they listed on the site? I didn't see any sausage recipes under pork.

            Yeh, we learnt two things.

            1. When making your own Foodsaver bags out of a roll, you have to seal BOTH sides, or else the sausage just goes right through. I did that after sealing waaaay too many bags.

            2. He now knows in order to vacuum and seal, you don't press the button on my unit. I get back to the kitchen and he has a nice sealed bag, FULL OF AIR. hahaha

          Pretty much filled to the gills I get exactly 15 pounds of smoke sausage. Which is nice, I only have 25 more pounds to go. This has pepper jack cheese. Used cherry chunks. Next round gets Hickory chunks.

            I'm assuming you're doing this in your COS. What are you using for your hanging rack?

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

              Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
              Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
