RE: Cure and smoke Pork Loin - Like Ham
Lots of good information we have cured and smoked pork loins for several years with good success. Our recipe calls to soak the pork loin in the brine for 4 days I left the loins in the brine for 5 days once it was a little salty. Be sure to rinse off the pork loins when you take them out of the brine pat dry put them back in the refrigerator on a jerkey rack for 12 hours roll them over a few times this form a coating on the out side of the meat to help keep the juices in don’t over cook they dry out easy. Good luck.
RE: Venison sausage mix
Yes Austin I cook-smoke my summer sausage and snack sticks in the smoker.
I do not cook or smoke my ground meat jerky. Seasoning and cure I stuff it in a casing put it in refrigerator for a couple of days put it in the freezer for a hour or two them on the meat slicer cut 1/4" x 2 1/2" medallions put them in the dehydrator for about 20 hours or till it gets the texture I like.
RE: Venison sausage mix
Austin do you use the 20 - 25% fat to venison for summer sausage, snack sticks, and ground jerky? Would you recommend adding 25 % pork fat to the venison, cure, seasonings, binder, mix, stuff in to 2.9 x 20 " fibrous castings I let them set in the refrigerator for 3 days put in the freezer for a little while till partial frozen slice on my slicer and put in the dehydrator.
On some batches I had little drops of fat on the jerky that I wiped off with paper towels?
Great job I enjoy your forum I think you are starting to build a community.
Deer & Wild Game Rinse
I just got your deer wild game rinse.
I mixed it up according to the directions put it in a spray bottle. I all ways hose off my game after gutting and dining. My question is do I spray the deer rinse on when I am done or does it need rinsed off with clean watter?
RE: Fresh sausage.
That is a great video can’t wait to try it. We do some fresh sausage in lamb casings. Freeze on sheet pans than vacuum package. Also brats in hog casings. But we also smoke - cook some of our sausage links and brats then vacuum pack and freeze.
How would i smoke - cook the sausage if I linked them like in the video?
We have large wire racks for the smoker but where the sausage touches the rack or another sausage their is a different color no smoke color. Any sugestions?
RE: Summer sausage
That is a great question I have been wanting to make some summer sausage with high temp cheddar cheese and chuncks of jalapeño. Sounds great. I usually make 25# batches but I don’t want to make 25# of sausage that is too hot to eat. Looking for a good recipe. I know their is a Lot of different heat levels in fresh jalapeños.
