@denny66 You can usually get away with adding some additional premix seasoning but you need to be aware that one of the primary ingredients in the mix will be salt so you must take care not to get your product too salty.

RE: Roll Call (Start Here First)
I live in Mary Esther, Florida.
I have been playing with sausage for awhile now. My oldest brother got me interested and we often share ideas. Unfortunately my brother and I live on opposite sides of the country so can only share by phone but, we have had some long conversations trading ideas.
I have an electric smoker and love to smoke pork butts. My electric smoker does not give as good a smoke as a stick fired smoker but it still gives good flavor and could not be easier to use.
What I love about making my own sausage the variety of tastes you can get and the quality of the sausage itself. For me many of the readily available commercial products have a sameness of taste and texture (there are some exceptions that are very good). When you make your own, you have control over the flavor and the texture.
RE: Carrot Fiber Binder
I can not directly answer your question but I can say that I used carrot fiber binder with ground pork loin (very little fat content) and it really improved the moistness of the sausage. When I add water I go by feel of the mixture (just add slowly until it feels right) and have not had any problems. Since it sounds as if you have made venison summer sausage before add water like you did before but if the mixture seems too stiff add water a little at a time until it feels right and you should be ok.
