I wouldn't hesitate to do it in the oven if that is what it takes.  Maybe you could thaw  some out and cold smoke with your smoke thing later on.

Don't blow a gasket Boar; here it is...

 

JALAPENO SUMMER SAUSAGE

Wanting to try a new summer sausage, I decided on Curley’s jalapeno summer sausage mix. Just got the pack enough for 10 pounds. Like to try smaller amounts first before making larger batches. Had some 80/20 lean ground beef in the freezer so I took that out to thaw. I had fibrous casings on hand, but maybe not enough. No problem, since I still had some collagen casings I use for sticks also. Here is what I used:

10 pounds of 80/20 lean ground beef

2 cups of dry milk powder

1 pack of Curley’s Jalapeno Summer Sausage mix [enough for 10 pounds]

2 tsp cure#1 [comes with seasoning pack]

2 T mustard seeds

3 cups water

I sprinkled the dry powder milk over the ground beef along with the mustard seeds. Put the rest of the ingredients and cure in the water and mixed it well. Then poured that over the meat. Mixed everything well. Then put the sausage mix in the fridge for a overnight stay for everything to meld together. Next day I stuffed everything.

This time around I used my barrel type Char-Griller smoker/grill with the side fire box. Just wanted to see how it would work smoking summer sausage. I used my Amps smoker tube which really worked well. Cold smoked the sausage for 5 hours and the tube still was going good. So I added one load of hot charcoal in the fire box. This put the temp in the barrel up to 225 deg. which was just fine. When the temp started to drop I just added some dry oak branches, a few at a time. This bumped the temp up and gave me additional smoke as well. I had cherry pellets in the Amps. When the internal temp of the summer reached 160 I pulled the summer and put summer in ice water to stop the cooking process. Made a few sticks with casings and a few without [grandkids] with part of the batch which I also smoked. Here are some pics:

Once I ground, mixed spices in and did a real good mixing, stuffed, smoked.  All in one day.  Tasted great.  Whether it is in a bowl or in a casing it is still melding.  Just make sure to mix real good.  All depends on how much time a guy has.

Do you have Curley's sesoning on hand and if you do what kind?  I can tell you what to use if I knew what you have on hand.  You can use the formed bacon seasoning also for summer.  Reb, thanks for posting that recipe for me.  good luck.

Ya right now my page is pretty basic but I don't see why you are having trouble with it.  you go to Homemade Sausage page and just scroll down.  Once I get that thing updated I'm hoping that you could just hit summer sausage and there it is type of thing but I"ve got to get my brain updated also so I can put that on there.   I've got the salami on there also Boar.  When you get the seasoning let me know and I'll help you with it.  good luck.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
