Is there any truth to the rumor that the Academy is going to have a sausage making GTG? I see blueberry breakfast, jalapeno cheddar, and various Italian sausage being made and shared. And maybe, just maybe a few brews consumed?

Yup, youre in. We were going to call it "Sausage Fest" but it turns out @Biz-R-OWorld trademarked that term for his annual vacations with his boyz. @moog5050 served us a Cease and Desist inside of 24 hours

Wow lamb casings are a pain!  But they look good.  5 lbs of Sicilian sausage and 5 lbs of hot pepper and cheddar headed to the smoker tomorrow.

Lamb casings are a pain. But worth the trouble, especially for whole rings for summer grilling.

After stuffing few thousand pounds of them it gets easier....

Yea... today just wasn’t my day with them. I should’ve either ground the meat finer or found a slightly bigger stuffing tube.   My 2.5 year old helper didn’t make it any easier... but at least she had fun.

Ok I got started on some venison sausage. I  cubed up my last deer and froze it in 3-4 lb pkgs. Bought a 9lb pork butt and boned it out, froze it in 2-3 lb pkgs. I figured it would be a good mix of venison to pork? I ground up 2 pkgs of venison and 2 of pork mixing it as I ground it. The meat was still pretty frozen but I  wanted it real cold. Worked great, and looks like a good mix. 

I made half into pepper sticks with cheddar cheese. And the rest breakfast sausage.  I used some for a breakfast pizza,  some bulk, and fried up the rest as patties for quick breakfast Sammies. Got the sticks in my smoker with a roast for pastrami. I love trying this stuff. Can't wait for the Academy "Sausage Fest"!!

Looks awesome! What type of wood for the smoke?

I’m not sure what Taco used but I am addicted to Pecan lately for venison especially....not overly potent like mesquite or hickory (if you overdo it) but a touch stronger than the fruit woods

I've been mixing apple and hickory but was thinking last weekend I want to try pecan.

I used a mix of apple and hickory. I thought it would be a good combo of sweet and smoky flavors. I also have some cherry but chose to hold off on the cherry for now. Next time, we'll see? It was good for the snack sticks, I haven't sliced into the pastrami yet.

Can we get the recipe for the pastrami? I'm in the process of brining corned venison. Would i brine it in the same brine then add the seasoning?

All I did was brine the roast for 7 days, then rinsed it off and set it uncovered in the fridge overnight to dry. Then I  just peppered it and put it in the smoker. No additional seasoning or brining.

Here's the finished pepper sticks.  Almost looks professional! I cut the ends off and take them to hockey in a small baggie. Hockey,  beer, and pepper sticks or jerky, it doesn't get any better! Yum!

What brine recipe did you use? I did a few venison roasts as a traditional "Ham" last year and it came out wonderful.
