Nutrition info?

  • Although taste in my book is much more important…

    any thoughts as to the calorie count etc on a summer sausage (2 lb deer, 10oz pork fat, 6 oz hi temp cheddar cheese + seasoning/cure)?

  • you are right where you need to be with the pork fat. an equation to remember is F + S = 🙂 (fat plus salt = flavor)

    Protein (P ) Fat (F) Carbs ©

    Deer 2 lb:
    Calories 1340
    230 Protein
    30 Fat
    0 Carb

    Pork Fat:
    Calories 1,839
    14 Protein
    201 Fat
    0 Carb

    Calories 360
    Protein 18
    Fat 6
    Carbs 0

    So, that would be 3,539 Calories, 262 grams of portein, 237 grams of fat and no carbs. Now, that doesn’t factor in the seasoning but even if you are using a BBQ seasoning with a lot of sugar it is still so low that I don’t think it is going to matter ton. I might be wrong on that but I have done the math in the past for seasonings and it is just above what you can declare as “sugar free” which is less than 0.5 grams per serving.

    @s-a-m Thanks for that. We actually lined the pans with plastic wrap to allow the loaf to easily come out. I am with you though and have had aluminum do weird things with certain foods before after it sits in it for a while. I think the plastic wrap is a must.

    @John-Gehringer said in Meat Mixer:

    @s-a-m Traeger pellets are 100% wood, only food grade soybean oil used process the pellets, not to flavor it, they are made in Oregon. I personally don’t buy their product anymore, because they have gotten way to pricey. I use Bear Mountain made in OR and a new brand Smokehouse that are made in OR as well. Get them at Smart Food Service for 1/3 less than the Traegers.
    Mesquite and hickory are 100% wood just not hickory or mesquite, their either Adler or oak with oils. A simple search shows that and most bags of treager pellets aren’t 100% the specie’s llike apple is like 30-40% apple and the rest is oak or Adler , I stick to lumberjack brand.( it’s a free country people can buy what that want) jm2c

    When you’re just starting out it’s much easier to learn with hog casings rather than sheep casing. Hog casing is much easier to handle and is less likely to burst. That being said, try watching YouTube videos by Scott Rea (@scottreaproject) or The Roed to Good Cooking. Both will show some neat tricks to dealing with natural casings.
