Yesterday, I spent part of the day working up the deer that my son and I harvested during our gun season. I mixed some of the meat with our farm raised pork and made several types of sausage. In the picture above, that is a load of jerky. I switched a few years ago and now make the smoked dried treat out of ground meat. It tastes great and is easier to chew. The best part is, that the kids love it!

I also made some summer sausage. We like the taste, use it in our lunches and enjoy it with cheese and crackers.


These little chubs are great!

Today, from the pork we didn’t use with the deer. I am making smoked polish sausage and some old fashioned smoke breakfast sausage. It gets stuffed into smaller casings, smoked and cooked…Then we get to eat it!

This farm once again provides a bounty, makes me say…deer me! and thank you!


Slab bacon, Canadian bacon waiting to be brined…next weeks smoking project. It is good to be busy 🙂

Everything was so yummy! Can’t wait to share mine with the kids! That is if we don’t eat it all up before it gets home!
