Smoke 'em if you Got 'em

My first attempt at elk summer sausage today. We ground, mixed and packed it last weekend, now it's time for the fun part. I love my smoker...

Bucket of mesquite chunks and other accessories? Check.


Meat in the smoker? Check.


Fire up the smoke box! Check.


Boise State vs Warshington at 1330? Double check. Gonna be a good day fellers.

And we're done. Pretty freakin' good. I may have to more of this next year. I think the pepper jack cheese was a nice touch.

Your a 'dirty dog' huntinaz.

That home rolled summer sausage looks great...and with the pepper jack cheese on some Townhouse crackers with a dab of spicy mustard?

Will make your gums beat your brains out.

So it's 4:30 in the morning and time to go to the fish market for another day of FUN serving the public.............

But, as usual, I slip in a few moments reading the FLF only to see this.

Now it's my usual practice to have coffee and a banana while reading the news and emails before going to work. Maybe a hour later I really ready for REAL food......

But not this morning, thanks to you.

No, today I sitting at the computer looking at your creation and imagining how good it'd be heated in a skillet, slathered in syrup and chased down by a helping of cheese grits.

I mean I feel like Pavlof's Dog here.............

Louann is not going to be happy with you........because I am going to blame it on you that she has to get up and feed me, NOW!

Uh oh, I hope I'm far enough away to catch any wrath

I smoked for 3 hours at like 125 degrees, then 4 hours between 150-180 degrees. Internal temp was recommended at 158 degrees, these hit 165-170 which seems to have been fine.

The last 2 weekends I made 15lb of plain and 30lb of jajapeno deer summer sausage and 10lb of jerky.
Man, there is nothing better than homemade summer sausage.
I smoked it for about 3-4 hours and 4 hours with just heat.

After Christmas I have to make more jerky, summer sausage and I going to try making 15lb of brats. And hopefully more breakfast sausage. My middle daughter still has an elk tag, so I've been making freezer room.

BTW, summer sausage tastes WAY better with home brew from my kegerator tap than Coors from the can. I cant even choke down Coors.

Great pictures! I'm getting ready to get into this years deer meat for the first time today. Nothing like preparing your own harvest.

Everything looks good except your guys' beer choice. If you can see light through the bottle its not beer.

There are many better beers than Coors, but there are worse. At the particular getting place I was visiting yesterday, quality vs cost ratio was right for the Coors.

I will try and upgrade next time for the beer snobs

That's some time of sick joke posting that.

Get rid of Coors original though. (preferably Stella/DosEquis)
