Sausage making is an ancient art. dating back to the days before walk in freezers and prepackaged heat and serve little smokies.
In reality you can make decent sausage with nothing more than a knife.
Ancient art or not the wife and I use a Kitchen Aid stand mixer with a grinder and Stuffer attachments... I mean why make life harder on yourself than it has to be, right? Let me say right from the start. my wife is the real sausage making queen! Her family has a Germanic background and that whole side of the family are some wondrous cooks, esp when it comes to wild game.

Making Sausage: Step 1

Great sausage can be made out of anything, deer elk moose, rabbits and rattlesnakes

Step two; Grinding the meat

Man your not living until you try Wild Turkey Weisswurst (White German Sausage)

Step 3 Mixing the spices

How about trying Making German Style Bear Sausage

Steep 4; Stuffing

Salami is a type of sausage too keeps forever and tastes so Day-am good too!

okay down to the serious part...
Big rule/ Huge rule unless you want to come down with botulism Always cure your meat get that done right and your ready for the smoker

BTW one of my all time fav's is something called Teewurst if you ever find yourself in a German Deli ask for Teewurst and if you like it
Here's a recipe

I don't know about you all but I'm hungry now....
and lucky for me, come elk season I know right where to bag me a nice sized Buck.

Venison sausage is really good stuff. A lot of hunters here get it made out of their deer.

Antelope is big out here... but I don't much care for the flavor.
Unless it's turned into a nice breakfast sausage then served with green chili and hominy...

well yeah, everything tastes better with chili on it, right?

Good idea for the Survival thread..S&F
No point in prepping for the end of the World then ending your own World with a dodgy Botulism laced Sausage.

it's also a big family/community bonding kind of deal round these parts.
at least my in-laws turn it into one...
turning the garage into a production line... we men forced to do all the heavy lifting while the ladies take care of all the finer points, like
"Stop spilling your beer" and "For gods sake, would just go stand over there and get out of the way!"

Yup them Germanic Bavarian types are very serious about there sausage making, my part mostly ends at the field dressing and packing out... But that whole family/community bonding deal is part of survival too.

Cool thread!

I've made the hickory-smoked deer sausage. It's really good. I have sausage made almost every year. 95% of the time it's deer sausage. I also have my buddy make deer bologna. If you've never tried it then I suggest you do so. I can live off that stuff. The other day, I made spaghetti with Italian sausage in it. mm mm mmm. I love sausage of all kinds(keep your dirty remarks to yourselves.:mad
