Re: butcher question

sure, they may have a minimum poundage for each specialty item made exclusively from only your meat.

Re: butcher question

You can pick up sausage skins cheap. If you could find a cheap used sausage shooter you could season and make your own sausage. Add some pork, or beef, ro fat from both and spices.

If you enjoy hunting please find a way to give back to the sport. Our children will thank you.

Depends on the butcher, I suppose but I just dropped off 10# of ground venison at a local smokehouse to get summer sausage made. They mix in 3 to 4 lbs of pork to make 5 logs of sausage.

Re: butcher question

I agree depends on the butcher. The one I go to does not want the meat ground. I take it you ground it up. With that said consider doing the snack sticks yourself. I have the jerky shooter and a dehydrator and it comes out great. Just get those mix's and I'm sure the snack sticks work as well as the jerky one's do.

Re: butcher question

They sell kits to make it yourself and it's really easy. The secret to making it turn out like your butcher did it is to submerge the sausage or slim jims in ice water as soon as you take it out of the oven or smoker. That will stop the cooking process instantly, and it won't be all dried out like the stuff ole Jethro brings to work asking you what you think about the deer bologna he made.

The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
