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

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
