My first batch of summer sausage in years. I was very unhappy with my previous setup, so this year I upgraded all of my equipment. This was the maiden voyage for my new MES 340G which I modified to be controlled by an Auber WSD-1500H-W and added an Auber fan, and feed smoke via the “Mailbox” mod. I love this new setup so much my wife is jealous.
Using this “shelter in place” opportunity to up my smoking game (pun intended), and start working through my freezer backlog. I found some unique casings online, and really like the way they look. And the sausage tastes great!
It was a 25lb batch, 14/6/5 lbs respectively of venison, pork butt & pork fatback. My normal ratio is 16/4/5, but I messed up and didn’t thaw out enough venison.
Smoked over a hickory/apple/cherry blend. Om nom nom nom!
