Picture heavy... sorry!!
First time using the new sausage stuffer that Kapn Tim sent not long ago...
Thank you again Tim!!
Had a venison hind quarter roast in the freezer and wanted to use it before this deer season.
trimmed and cubed the meat..
mixed with pork and pork fat..
I like a ratio of 3 parts venison to 1 part pork fat but this time I added a bit more straight pork.
Divided the mixture in half...
Used 5 pounds for each batch.
First batch I made some brats..
For 5lbs of the meat...
used 1 tsp mustard powder
2 1/2 TBS salt
1 tsp coarse black pepper
1/2 TBS sugar
1/2 TBS corriander
1/2 TBS crushed caraway seeds
a couple of crushed dried cayenne peppers
and made a slurry with one cup of cold beer...
mixed inside of a 2 1/2 gallon baggie ...
tried some of the hog casings that are easy to load... REALLY liked these.
It was amazing how easy these were to use and how quick it went.
made a braid...
Second batch I made some andouille...
10 cloves chopped garlic
1 1/2 TBS cayenne
3 TBS salt
1 TBS thyme
2 TBS black pepper
1 Cup cold beer for the slurry...
made these smaller... wanted them for snacking during deer camp.
simmered a few in beer then grilled...
one of the brats with kraut, caramelized onions, bacon and spicy mustard..
Didn't get pics of the andouille bites... they went fast.
Thank you again Tim, I love the stuffer!! It was sooo much easier for me to use than the attachment on my grinder. Couldn't believe how quick these were to make. Can't thank you enough.
Thanks for looking!
