Default Y'all Wanna Make Some Venison Sausage: Live?

I'm heading to Ellinger early this morning to meet up with a group of fellas with funny last names (Stolle, Baca, Vinklarek, Hafernick) to grind, stuff, smoke and dry several hundred pounds of venison (and pork)) sausage.

There may also be some beer consumed.

Pics (and beer?) will commence around daylight.

I know a guy that makes mine but guys with funny last names making sausage is always entertaining. They seem to always know what they're doing. Roll the pics.

Tuned in and taking it easy today after making 150 pounds last weekend plus a looooooong week at work.

I made 50 pounds of dried sticks, 50 of summer and 50 of burger. Still need to make link and pan but hoping to trap some Hallettsville hogs tonight as I'm out of deer.

Keep the pictures coming, looks like a good time ahead.

I'd tell you that we're making duck sausage, but I don't want to open myself up to the vulgar jokes!

Just over night for the sausage we plan to cook. Dry sausage will hang for at least 10 days depending on weather.

Big thanks to the 2017 "Brushy Sausage Making Team", Matt, GJ, Todd, Peanut, Steve, John, Stevie and the dude from China (TX) with the over-the-top-kick-*** stories!

I have more pics to post, but I took HOURS of video that I'll have to parse through for the next Video Journal.

Cabela's Commercial grade, I bought it a few years ago, maybe 8. Pretty simple to use too. Close lid and press button. They revamped it this year and cut the heat bar back to 15". I've owned a few. And found quality bags make a big difference too.

Here's the new revamped one. The old style had stainless outsides rather than the black. Program and layout are the same. Once you push the handle down and it locks, you can remove your hands, press start, and it dose the rest. Then unlock the handle and remove bag. Mine came with a cover bag for storage also.

I'm back a few weeks later to collect our dry sausage from the smoke house.

With the unseasonably warm temps, it's been quite a workout for the a/-dehydrator venting into the smokehouse.

Big thanks to Matt's cousin, Stevie, for keeping watch while it dried!
