High temp cheese in summer sausage



  • Looking forward to trying high temp cheese in venison summer sausage and cooking it in the Masterbuilt smoker.



  • If you think you sausages are good with the seasoning that you have ordered , just wait till you add cheese. I always add just a little more than the instructions. We like to call this the ’ Courtesy Bump "… Have fun and use the jalapeno flavor .

    I usually split my 25 pounds of mix and do a pound of cheddar and a pound of hot pepper in each half. There’s always one special roll that has a mixture of both.



  • I’m gonna a take a shot at Summer Sausage this summer for the first time. I’ve made Italian sausage for many years. We always use grated (dry) Pecorino Romano cheese in the Italian sausage. I tried aged Parmesan once but it was bland.
    Do you use soft chunks of cheese in the Summer Sausage?



  • I am trying the high temp cheese

    I with you on this one @Jason ! We recommend adding cheese at a rate of 10% of your total meat block, but I’ve done upwards of 20% before, and it’s fantastic! I really love cheese though…

    @RossBausone From Walton’s recommendation and my own personal recommendation, I only use High Temp Cheese in sausage. It’s formulated a bit differently that what you’ll buy in a grocery store. That’s not to say you cannot put other cheese in sausage, but it just won’t turn out quite the same, it may melt, run out, or just make the sausage over greasy. If you haven’t tried the high temp cheese before, definitely give it a shot and see how it compares.

    @RossBausone yep, go with the high temp cheese. I tried a regular cheddar that I cubed and it gave a slimy texture to the sausage so it’s all high temp for me from now on.



  • I’ve never tried cheese in mine before. May have to experiment a little.



  • I’m a big fan of adding cheese to some of my sausages and Walton’s high temperature cheese works very well for me.

    I have been using hi-temp cheese for many years and love it. Try giving it a couple hours of cold smoke and let it set overnight. Then add it to your sausage. Also is great in brats.
