I just figured I would throw this out there.
If you got a day or two to kill,and a grinder and oven.
This is what I buy for the most part.

https://www.amazon.com/LEM-Backwoods-Cured-Summer-Sausage/dp/B009SJB4ZE/ref=mp_s_a_1_11?crid=38YN4X1YZN9GK&keywords=backwoods+seasoning+kit&qid=1637713755&sprefix=backwoods+seasoning+kit%2Caps%2C359&sr=8-11

The kit says will only do 20lb but I don't really count the added meat,pork or beef,the nice thing about the kit is,each season packet does 5 pounds,so you don't have to kill yourself making it,or just don't need a lot.
First year added bacon,last year added hamburger,this year added fully cooked ham butt,it all turned out good.
I've bought extra casing and pink salt,and hog clips.
It's a two day process ,first grinding,seasoning,then stuffing through your grinder,then set in fridge over nite to cure,cook next day.
In my pics above the smaller rolls are the casing that comes in the kit. I've bought the 24in bigger case cause they seem to fit more snug on the oven rack.

So that's it. I'm no sausage expert ,I just use there little packets.
Like this batch I only had three packets for 15 pounds,I just added some extra garlic and onion powder and pink salt.
So I could do about 25 pounds.
When I say a day to kill,definitely took all day for the cooking process in an oven. But a lot of you guys with nice smoker or tregger grill should be a breeze.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

The smoking/cooking is the easy part. It's the trimming,grinding, mixing,cleanup,vacuum sealing that takes up the time. It is really rewarding once it is all done though. Good job on the sausage.  I did 25 pounds of brats last week. Have 10 pounds of jerky on the smoker now. Still got 25 pounds of pepperoni snack sticks and 30 pounds of summer sausage left to do. I try to knock out one batch a week.

Man your machine!
I feel wiped out just from my little deal.
It does feel good though to know you got some fully cooked ready to eat food in the freeze though.

Here is the brats. Did 10 pounds jalapeņos and cheddar, 10 pounds traditional,  and 5 pounds of spicy.  All said and done it took about 4 hours and 5 beers for this batch.

I use hi temp cheese in the pepperoni and summer sausage since I smoke it. The brats I use regular sharp cheddar because they are not cooked for several hours just grilled. Just pulled out the jerky.

Man that jerky looks good too,nice color to it. :tup:

I did some breakfast sausage Links last year. But mix it with Jimmy Dean sausage and seasoning and maple syrup stuff.
But they didn't turn out as good as I would of liked. We ate them,but just not great.
I might have to try my hand at it again. Still got some hog casing.

I tried some venison breakfast sausage a couple times and I just can't get it to turn out right. I just told myself the Jimmy Dean is the best you can get and can't replicate it with wild game. I can accept that I can't replicate breakfast sausage but can make killer other sausages.  What are you making next? Curious to know. I wasn't trying to hijack your thread either but thought I should share some sausages I was making.

I respectfully disagree that Jimmy Dean is the best breakfast sausage - Hank's Market in Twisp makes the best. I buy it ten pounds at a time when I'm over at the cabin so I always have a good supply on hand.

I'm cool with some picture and recipes sharing on this thread.
