Recipe for 25 lb yield package

  • 15 lbs. lean pork butts

  • 10 lbs. lean beef, venison or moose

  • 1 pkg. Sausage Source Pepperoni Seasoning

Grind all meat through a 3/16” plate. Mix all meat well, adding all ingredients evenly. Then, regrind through a 1/8” plate. Mix well. The meat is now ready to stuff into hog casings. Hang at room temperature or 70°F for 2 days. Humidity is best for making pepperoni so hang during a damp or rainy day. Place pepperoni into cooler at 38°-40°F for at least 18 days.

 

Hang in smoke house for one hour at 110°F then raise temperature to 160°F for 8 hours with moist heat in the smoker. Remove from smoker or smoke house and chill in cold water to 100°F internal temperature. Hang at room temperature for 8-10 hours. Hang back in cooler 38°-40°F for 4 to 5 days. If not dry enough by that time, hang for 2 to 3 more days. This is a slow process, so be patient. It will be worth it!

 

Recipe for 25 lb yield package

  • 15 lbs. beef or venison

  • 10 lbs. pork butt or ground pork

  • 2 ½ cups cold water

  • 1 pkg of Sausage Source Seasoning with cure

Grind all beef or venison and pork through large holed grinding plate on meat grinder. Sprinkle seasoning and cure into meat while mixing together. Mix in cold water. Mix all ingredients together well. Let stand refrigerated for 1 hour. Meat will turn a grayish color, which means it is cured. Stuff mixture into fibrous casings. Tie ends with heavy cotton string. Pre-heat oven to 200°F. Place sausages into oven until internal temperature reaches 150°-160°F (use an instant read thermometer) approximately 4-6 hours depending on size of sausages. Cool down with cold water until internal temperature reaches 100°F. Refrigerate. Process may be done with a smoker.

     
Beef Stick Sausage (Hot or Mild)   Sportsman's Beef or Wild Game Jerky

Recipe for 25 lb yield package

  • 25 lbs of 90% lean beef

  • 1 pkg of Sausage Source Hot or Mild Beef Stick Seasoning with cure

Grind all beef through large holed grinding plate (3/8”) on meat grinder. Sprinkle seasoning and cure into meat while mixing together. Meat will turn a grayish color, which means it is cured. Mix well. Regrind though 1/8” grinding plate, stuffing into sheep casings. Pre-heat smoker to 100°F. Drape sausage on sticks, pieces not touching. Insert temperature probe in one sausage. Run at 100°F for 1 hour with dampers wide open. Increase temperature to 165°F. Put ¾ of a pan of moistened sawdust on burner and smoke for 5 hours. Close top damper to 1/8 open and bottom damper to ¾ open. Cook until internal temperature reaches 150°-155°F. Turn smoker off and let cool to 100°F. Remove beef sticks to cooler.
 

 

Recipe for 5 lb yield package

  • 5 lbs. lean game or beef

  • 1/4 lb. of honey

  • 1/2 pint water

  • 1 pkg Sausage Source Sportsman’s Jerky Seasoning #344

Grind meat through ½” hole plate (large). Mix in Jerky Seasoning #344. Add the 1 lb of honey and 2 pints of water. When thoroughly mixed, grind mixture again through 1/8” hole plate (small). Mix thoroughly so meat is tacky, and form strips by hand or by using the Jerky Shooter® or Jerky Cannon® (avilable at The Sausage Source). Another method would be to form in a pan and freeze for 1-½ hours, then remove and cut into strips with a serrated knife. Lay strips on screen and smoke at 155°F for about 6 hours or use a dehydrator. An oven can be used instead of a dehydrator, setting the oven at the lowest temperature with the door cracked open for 4-6 hours or until desired texture is reached. Cook jerky to room temperature and remove.

 

 

 

Wild Game Sausage (Universal for Red Meats)

  Corned Beef

Recipe for 25 lb yield package

  • 7 lbs. pork butt or ground pork
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 1 pkg Sausage Source Seasoning without cure

Mix all but the packet of spices together until dissolved thoroughly. This is your brine. With a meat injector, pump beef or wild game briskets with brine (12 to 15% of the brisket’s green weight) with at least one ounce per pound. After pumping, place meat flesh side up. Sprinkle corned beef spice over product in plastic tub or stainless steel container. Place next piece flesh side down on top of the last piece and sprinkle on it. Continue in this pattern until 25 lbs. is spiced. Next, add enough of the brine to cover the product completely and the container is full. Place cover over the container and weight the meat down. Make sure all the meat is covered with brine. Allow product to cure at 38°-40°F for 3-4 days. Then, remove product from brine. Rinse with cold water and dry for 1-2 hours. Enjoy!
