We then pour our water seasoning mix over the coarse ground deer/pork mix. Then we thoroughly mix and stir the meat, seasoning, and water. We have good tap water in Jackson, MO, so we just take water from the tap, put in clean milk jugs, and let set 24 hours for the chlorine to dissipate. You could also use distilled water or spring water. Make sure the water is as cold as possible - eg. let the water set in the refrigerator at least 4 or 5 hours to get it as cold as possible or add ice - making sure of the total weight of the water is still the correct amount.
This deer in the hopper has been ground once through 1/2 inch hole plate and mixed with the water/deer seasoning mix as described above.
Here we are fine grinding this mix. Fine grind is just like ground beef you get at the grocery store. This is normally ground with a grinder plate with 1/8 inch diameter holes.
We then stuff the raw deer sausage in
"3 lb." fibrous casings (2½ inches in diameter by 20 inches long) and set in the cooler (or refrigerator - with the temperature as close to 38° F as possible).
The next morning we hang the casings in the smokehouse (by the string loops on the end of the casings on bacon hooks) (we use real hickory sawdust to produce the smoke), until the internal temperature of the sausage is 152 ° F.
Below is our smoking schedule.
Smoke House Temperature
1st 2 Hours OR**
165° F to 175° F
Till Internal Temperature of Sausage Reaches 152° F
** [Do NOT begin the smoking process UNTIL the internal temperature of the sausages reach 90 ° F.]
Here is our Smokehouse process schedule for deer sausage:
After the sausage product has been seasoned, stuffed and cured overnight, we hang the sausage product in the smokehouse, carefully positioning the sausages so that they are not touching one another.
If you have a meat thermometer, push the probe into the center of one of the sausages, set the temperature alarm at 152° F. See Our Meat Thermometer.
Begin by setting the temperature to 130° F for the first two hours; open the smoker damper wide open until the sausages internal temperature reaches 90 degrees.
For the next two hours, close the damper to the 1/2 (half) open position and raise the smokehouse temperature to 140° F. Now you can apply your sawdust to begin the smoke, longer is optional if you prefer a heavy smoke.
For the next two hours, raise the smokehouse temperature to 150 degrees and keep the damper half open and keep replenishing the sawdust to keep the smoke going.
Now raise the smokehouse temperature to 165 to 170° F, close the damper to 2/3 closed and keep the sawdust smoking until the sausages reach an internal temperature of 150° F.
Remove the sausages from the Smokehouse and let them cool down overnight at room temperature. The next day the deer sausage is "ready to eat"!
That's a very quick summary of our recipe and how we make our deer sausage.
We use F.W. Witts Sausage Seasoning mix for our Deer Sausage. We sell it packaged for 25, 50 and 100 lb. batches of deer/beef sausage. You can order this seasoning yourself on our
Deer Sausage Seasonings page.
We also sell clear Fibrous Deer Sausage Casings. You can order these casings on our Casings page.
In sausage making or meat processing, temperature is very important both in making sure the meat is properly chilled and in cooking or smoking the sausage to its optimum temperature.
