Default Smoked Sausage Types-Any Ideas?

I had a very successful deer season and have more venison and pork than I normally do for making sausage. Iíve already made my ground meat and pan sausage and will probably make Italian in a few weeks. Iíll be making my smoked link sausage this weekend and was seeing if anyone had anything new I could try to make. Iíll be making jalapeŮo/cheese, regular smoked, green onion/garlic, maple, and maple/jalapeŮo. Does anyone have any other ideas for smoked sausage?

Thanks for the suggestion. Thatís what Iím looking for.

That definitely looks flavorful with some spicy pop. I might try that. I found the Voodoo on Amazon, they are proud of that seasoning!

I like to look through Waltons website to look at their seasonings for ideas.

I do several types of link varieties including green onion and jalapeŮo cheese. I hunted with an older gentlemen many decades ago, he gave me a recipe for German cabbage link. I made several batches of green cabbage sausage links. Not bad at all, great flavor with my seasoning. I added jalapeŮo and cheese and homemade hot sauce. I don’t do maple sausage, pretty much standard but the cabbage was darn good and requested by men at the camp and at the house. Pm me if you need details.

What fat ratio do yíall use? I have tried two batches with about 75/25, but they did not turn out real well. I am thinking I need to bump up the fat.

Well guys I made 7 different flavors of sausage. 173 pounds total. This is the 4th year I’ve processed all my own meat and I’ve tweaked things every year but this year I feel like it’s dialed in. Everything I’ve sampled is crazy good. I made 37 pounds of the Meat Church and it’s really good, lots of flavor! I built my own smoke house 4 years ago and it definitely produced this weekend!

Bearded butchers just got into the sausage makings business. They have several different seasonings and high heat cheeses. I just got some Cajun seasoning and high heat jalapeŮo jack to make sausage with.

I bought it at a local meat supplier in Beaumont. I believe it was $24 for 5 pounds. Most meat suppliers or processing places have it. We usually buy pork butts, pork fat, and beef shoulder clods from the same place.

I use high temp pepper Jack cheese in some of my link. Still working on jalapeŮo cheddar. Most of my family don’t like it hot. I tell them that’s what the pepper Jack is for.

Yes I used venison. It was close to a 55/45 mix (some wild pork and some store bought pork butts) with 20% Pork fat.

I use high temp cheddar cheese and dehydrated jalapeŮos I buy from a local butcher shop. Itís .75 oz per 10 pounds on the dehydrated jalapeŮos. For fresh raw jalapeŮos its 1 pepper per pound.

Do you have a picture of the inside of your smokehouse? I have a similar setup with a wood burning stove piped into the smokehouse. I also keep a propane fish cooker inside to help regulate a steady temp inside.. I still deal with hot spots/uneven temps in different areas throughout the smokehouse. I tried using a small fan to move the heat around, it helped a little. Its not a real big deal, I make it work.. just seeing what kind of setup others are using.

Skip all the heat. Your smoking sausage not cooking it. I know it's not always possible but try to do your smoking in cold but not freezing weather.

Any reviews on the holy voodoo sausage? Pretty spicy? I’m about to try a 30 lb batch with the same ratio he did in the video with 6 lbs. Seems like a ton of spices but I’m new to this.

Itís pretty dang good and yes it has some spice. It does require a lot of seasoning and was pretty pricey to make since the majority of the spices I didnít have. It seemed like way to much seasoning when I was preparing compared to the other sausage seasonings I use but it came out good.

I did the 6 lb batch just like in the video. I'm going to do another 6 lbs and cut back on the black pepper and jalapeno powder. It's good, just a little too much for my wife.

I didnít have any jalapeŮo powder and couldnít find any at HEB. I added a little more jalapeŮos to make up for it. It does have some pop.
