155# of sausage with friends
« Reply #-1 on: September 26, 2014, 12:16:07 AM »
Well as hunting season approaches it is time to turn last year's meat into sausage. My 77 year old friend nailed a bull elk last year along with a buck. I had meat left over and we decided to make some summer sausage and German frankfurters. We had some other friends join us to learn the process. I recently upgraded my propane smoker to digital control as well as my hot water bath system. The digital smoker and water bath systems worked very well. I am using my 30 # Kirby Cannon with foot control. Hugh is kind hard of hearing and I don't think he heard the fact the he was supposed to not talk while we were videoing.  Here is the short video of the process and a few pictures.

95 pounds of summer sausage. Some in muslin casings that sailor made for me.



60 pounds of franks.








The summer sausage after 1 hour of drying and then 2 hours of heavy smoke.




Now the franks into the smoker for 2 hours.



Hugh gives his approval



the franks in the hot water bath.



Now after the cold water bath everything goes on the counter to cool.






This is a cut shot of the Summer sausage in the muslin casings. They did fine in the hot water bath.

Nice video!  Gotta love Hugh with his comments!  That is quite a load of sausage and that stuffer sure beats hand cranking a 5 pound vertical stuffer.  Glad the cloth casings worked out for you.

Hugh regaled us with all sorts of wisdom all weekend. He is a nice older guy and sure likes the sausage. Jim thanks again for the casings. I thought they did a nice job and was glad they worked well in the hot water bath.
