Meat Smoking and Smokehouse Design Book for ONLY $21.97 - Shipped FREE in the U.S.!  308 Pages Long

This is our basic recipe and method of making deer sausage.

We usually make 5,000 to 7,000 pounds of deer sausage each deer season. 

We make our deer sausage in batches of 100 lbs.
We use an 80/20 ratio of deer to pork so we have 80 lbs. of deer and 20 lbs. of pork. We use only 80/20 pork trim, which is roughly 73% lean pork.

We coarse grind  the deer/pork mixture first (we use a 1/2 inch hole diameter grinder plate for this).

Then we add the a 4 oz. Bag of Speed Cure (Sodium Nitrite) to
 10 lbs. of ice cold water [20 cups] and mix thoroughly .

We then add the Witts Sausage Seasoning to this mix of water and Sodium Nitrite and mix  thoroughly. [We use a Rival Hand Mixer to stir.]

You can purchase our 25 lb. Deer Sausage Kit below for ONLY $34.97.  Includes everything you need to make 25 lbs. of deer sausage - except the deer meat!

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.
Grinding deer sausage video.

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.

Here is our Smokehouse process schedule for deer sausage:

  1. 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. 
  2. 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.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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. 
  7. 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 Smoked 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.

We highly recommend the using a quality Meat Thermometer.  Click here to view our Meat Thermometer.  Available for ONLY $12.95 - Shipped FREE in the U.S.!

To stuff your Deer Sausage, we recommend using the Dakotah Water Stuffer. We feel that the Dakotah Water stuffer is the BEST stuffer to use at home! ONLY $149.97 - and Shipped FREE in the U.S.  Check around - We think you will find this is the lowest price ANYWHERE!
