  • We got a taste of all of them today and were really happy. The venison was excellent and the pig was top notch too. Looking forward to getting them cased up and smoked tomorrow

    Sausage making went slower than expected... due to spreadsheet busts (by me) and a weighing error (by me).  The new grinder (a LEM Big Bite #12) was a big help, and things were made easier by commercial grade toys that we have accumulated over the years.

    Pictured is the @Foghorn, who was looking for a higher concentration of venison than some of the other recipes.  This was a spin on our TX Beef recipe, but with venison (50% venison, 20% lean pork, 30% pork fat).  We initially took out the jalapenos (since we had @Griffin's jalapeno cheddar sausage, which turned out awesome), but it really took off when we added the dried tailings from @The Cen-Tex Smoker's fermented sriracha (adding it above).  @The Cen-Tex Smoker realized he had some of TFJ's fermented jalapenos in the fridge, and we added those as well.  This is a spice-forward venison sausage, and turned out awesome.

    The quality of venison we got from @Foghorn is awesome, and really works with the pork we added.

    Most excellent. 

    The venison is from a great ranch. And it was harvested by two surgeons. I’ve been hunting with them. They typically have it skinned, quartered and hanging in a 33 degree cooler within 45 minutes of the kill. It hangs for a week before further processing. 

    We have two ranch owners that each want us at their place to use their freestanding kitchen buildings to make sh!t tons of whatever recipes are deemed worthy.

    Here's what I got from a late arrival into the stretch run of the sausage fest today:
    Pro's and con's of box wine
    Bourbon ( a given)
    Sausage blends/recipes used and the casing; pig intestines for the win
    Sanitary preps for quality sausage making
    Texas based musicians

    That's it from here.

    Again, many thanks to @JohnInCarolina for pulling this together.
    We knocked it out of the park.  Also many thanks to all for participating across the spectrum, from the donations to the cooks and dropping in on the Zoom sessions.

    With the chairman's graces, the virtual watering hole (normal password) will be open this coming Friday at around 9 PM (EDT).  Plenty of seats available.  Hope to see you there.  If interested shoot me a PM and the password will be provided.  Worth the price of admission and top quality entertainment value.
