Beef sausage

6 posts in this topic

I made some venison sausage with PS seasoning and I liked it so much it is all gone. I would like to make more.

Can I do the same sausage with beef/pork?

Percentage of each?

What cut of beef works the best?

I appreciate the help.

What kind are you making?

I prefer a 50-50 ratio pork/venison or beef for summer sausage and salami.The more beef.....the firmer it is.

For any kind of breakfast sausage,I would use all pork.Plus the pork is cheaper.

PS Seasoning is the bomb! I love all of their stuff. I'm with Ken, I like 50/50 with Venny. I bet you could get away with 60/40 or 65/35. Even that ratio would be a high pork % because I know butcher shops go 70/30 or less. I think using less then it gets kind of dry.

I would try to get the toughest cut possible, because first off it's getting ground anyway, and second it will be cheaper. Boy I'm not really sure about using hamburger because it may get real mushy because obviously you have to mix, etc. Plus the grind diameter of the hamburger at the store can be different than the grind diameter of your pork that you will grind at home

I just picked up a summer sausage kit from P & S and I was wondering if those of you that have tried it from P & S did you use the maple cure ?

On my kit it also states that you should mix it at 15# beef or wild game to 10# pork so P.E. you can use beef in place of venison grin Now all I need is some mustard seeds laugh

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
