Who has a good smoked summer sausage recipe and wouldn't mind sharing?

The stuff I made last year just wasn't what i hoped it would be.

I have used the LEM and High Mountain Kits. I preferred the LEM.

Would love to hear any recipes from scratch tho.

I made the LEM kit, and while it was good, I thought it wasn't enough spice for the amount of meat suggested. If I were doing it again I might use three of their 10lb kits and make 20-22lbs of summer sausage. I did like the flavor but it just seemed a little thin.

We added more black pepper and it was much more better.

Been using this recipe for about 20 years.

4 pounds ground meat (pork or pork venison combo)
1/4 cup Morton's Quick Salt
(I have also substituted canning and pickling salt and actually cut back some)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
8 tablespoons of mustard seed
3 tablespoons of whole peppercorns
Can add mexican velveeta which works well or we are going to add the high temp pepperjack next batch

Instructions say to mix/stuff and refrigerate for 48 hours. Then smoke until temp is reached.

I use the cabelas mix and add diced jalapeños and shredded cheddar. I use deer meat and mix in 10% beef fat. I don't add any beef other than the fat.

this sounds similar to what my dad used to do except we used cracked pepper corn instead of whole... and we used beef instead of pork if memory serves me.

There's a place in rendon that all the processors use around here that's called clifco spices you can get a package that will do 25 pounds of meat with preservative for around 10dollars
