Here is what I use for a summer sausage type product. You could make it into snack sticks I guess just would need to smoke a little less since they would be thinner. You can get all the spices at most grocery stores.
Venison Summer Sausage
5 lbs. ground venison 4 tablespoon Morton’s Tender Quick Salt 3 teaspoon mustard seed 3 teaspoon black pepper 2 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt 1 teaspoon hickory smoked salt
Put together in large bowl and mix well. Store covered in refrigerator. For next 3 days take out once daily and knead mixing well. On fourth day roll into sticks – I usually make 12 sticks.
Smoke at 150 degrees for 4 hours. Turn sausage and smoke 4 more hours. If using multi-tier rack, move bottom to topand top to bottom when turning.
Wrap individually in foil and store in refrigeratorovernight before eating.
