You mean you're tired of paying an additional $3 or $4 a pound..... when you factor in everything else (license, fuel, guns, clothing, wear and tear on your pickup, optics, ammo, consumables , processing, and miscellaneous, your meat already costs about $10 or $15 a pound anyway right? Sorry I couldn't resist.... I know the drill all too well.

I think the biggest advantage of making your own sausage, fresh or smoked, is knowing exactly what is going into it, and seasoning it exactly the way you like. Around here, all the game processors make summer sausage, and jerky in additional to cutting and wrapping.... however, because of the time delay, they swap fresh meat for summer sausage and jerky. So, you are not getting your own meat back, and it's not made to order.

Check out the Cookshack line of electric box smokers. They are nice units, and you will be able to smoke and cook other things in them too. I've had prime rib from one that was cooked at 220 that was pretty tasty.

I'm sure you will get a lot of other suggestions.....
