Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
It’s time to kick back, relax and enjoy the aromas of fresh smoked meat as we sail towards summer. Not sure what to smoke? Try Down & Dizzy Pork Shoulder or Smoked Spanish Chicken. Now that Spring is in the air, it's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Venison Jalapeno Cheese Sausage

GriffinGriffin Posts: 5,692

Finally got around to breaking in my sausage stuffer I got for Christmas. Its the 5lb LEM one. Works so much better than using the grinder as a stuffer.

Mrs. G wanted jalapeno cheese sausage and who am I to argue? Started with 2.31 lbs of venison, 2.49 lbs of pork shoulder and .62 lbs of back fat.

No pictures of it being ground or stuffed. Kinda messy and didn't want to stop and wash my hands.Started it at 12 pm at 145 (higher than I wanted)

Mrs. G loved it. I was pleased with it, but think I will tweak a few things next time. Plenty juicy, good snap to the casing and nice flavor, but not enough heat. Also gonna try high temp cheese next time. Other wise, I'd call it a success and we have 4 more pounds of it in the freezer. :)
