    Fancy Summer Sausage

    Well, fancy just because I found some cool casings.

    This is my first batch of summer sausage in years. I was very unhappy with my previous setup, so this year I upgraded all of my equipment. This was the maiden voyage for my new MES 340G which I modified to be controlled by an Auber WSD-1500H-W and added an Auber fan, and feed smoke via the “Mailbox” mod. I love this new setup so much my wife is jealous.

    Drying before the smoke:

    Mr. Demille, I'm ready for my close up:

    Using this “shelter in place” opportunity to up my smoking game (pun intended), and start working through my freezer backlog. I love the casings, and the sausage tastes great!

    It was a 25lb batch, 14/6/5 lbs respectively of venison, pork butt & pork fatback. My normal ratio is 16/4/5, but I messed up and didn’t thaw out enough venison.

    Smoked over a hickory/apple/cherry blend. Om nom nom nom!

    [NOTE added about 10 months late: Not sure why it didn't occur to me at the time, but here's the recipe: https://KillerNoms.com/SummerSausage ]

    Looks great, love the casings. I made my first batches of summer sausage in March using seasoning blend from a Central Texas food processor and a venison/brisket blend of meat. Turned out great, don't know why I haven't done this before..

        Those pics belong in a food museum. It is as if you can almost taste it. That is signature work.

          Really nice. And I thought the cheese I smoked was stepping out of bounds. You nailed it!

                    That looks great. I'm looking for a new summer sausage recipe. My family informed me they are not really into the jalapeno summer sausage I've been making.

                      Thanks for the compliments all!

                      These are from a casing mfr in Ukraine, who sells on ebay and amazon. They have a LOT of different types. I used the clear fibrous 2.2"x15.7" 6-cell version. (55mm x 400mm).

                      Just google with these search terms:
                      • Sausage Casings Fibrous "Spiral Net"
                      Shipping is reasonable but very slow. Don't wait until the last minute.
