'Tis the season....I started making venison sausage over the weekend. So far I've made 10 lbs of breakfast sausage and 25 lbs of summer sausage. This is probably the best batch of summer sausage I've ever made. The breakfast sausage is good, but I'm still trying for the "wow" factor. I've still got snack sticks, jerky, and several kinds of brats to make.

Anyone else making there own sausage? Here's a look at mine.

Im making deer sausage tomorrow! Made antelope brats and breakfast sausage in October when I got my antelope. I always make some sausage out of my game!

Been doing it for years. Fact is I'll probably make the last of my antelope breakfast sausage this week. I use pork shoulder roast in mine, about 25% with no added suet, just whats on the pork. I use High Mt spices.

Mine is almost done! 1 more batch to smoke tomorrow and vac pack it. I use 1/2 pork in my breakfast sausage and about 15% beef fat and 15% beef in the rest. Sometimes I mix 15% beef fat in the breakfast, I know it sounds like an odd mixture but it tastes really good! I usually use Hi Mountain seasonings but Cabelas has really been having a shortage of them this fall.

I use bacon ends and pieces in my sausage. We use high mtn seasonings or seasonings from the sausage maker company. They have a ton of different flavors. I try to use High mtn to support the home state however. I would love to try all these different sausages that everyone is making. That would be one heck of a day!!!

I've never tried bacon ends. I'll have to keep that one in mind. Typically I'm using pork shoulder or pork fat.

This is my latest creation! 15lb deer, (15% beef fat, 15% beef) 1 onion, 4 lg jalapenos, 1 head garlic, 6 table spoon each Ravens all purpose seasoning, Italian seasoning, garlic salt, pepper, 2 table spoon ground sage, cure, and smoked for about 3 hours. It was kind of an experiment since cabelas was out of almost all Hi Mountain's seasonings but it turned out to be the best sausage I have made yet!

I didnt plan that far ahead LOL. Cabelas usually has a good stock of them. Im not sure whats going on this year? Selection was limited in Oct when I got my antelope and its alot worse now.

I saw some Hi Mountain Jerky Marinade yesterday at our local WalMart. Kinda surprised me as I didn't know they carried any of the Hi Mountain stuff.

I'm using the high mountain jerky spice mix that I use as a rub. Wife and kids love it!

I've used the High Mtn. and enjoy it. I recently used LEMs Pepper Snack Stick kit and they turned out really good. 5lb. ground pork 20lb. mule deer. Also did some elk brats and they were 80% ground pork to 20% elk. The brats were also good but pretty lean for a brat.

I've used High Mountain seasoning packages before to make jerky and sausage and they are all very good. I mostly use Hi Country mixes made in Lincoln Montana as I really like their products also. Both make excellent mixes, you just have to try some from both and see which tastes better to you. You can order the Hi Country mixes on-line. They also have a trophy board that is on the web-site you can post your hunting pictures on which is pretty neat.
