Beef sausage

Recommended Posts

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

    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .

    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
