Correct, it serves as binder...you'll never notice it.

I would like to try this. I will be using a casing, can/should I leave the oatmeal out?

What is Mortons tender quick salt? Sounds like a meat tenderizer?

No oatmeal in my summer sausage. I prefer it in a casing.

Here is a link to the Morton's Tender Quick Salt... http://www.mortonsalt.com/home-product/morton-tender-quick/.

I've not made it without the oatmeal as I don't use casing and don't have a sausage machine so you guys are on your own there. Think of it as heart healthy... smirk

My son & I made some for the first time last weekend during our wild sausage class at Feral in Austin. It was super easy and I can't wait to make more. Do you guys all bake it or smoke it? A little intimidated about that part....

I smoke mine in a Masterbuilt smoker. I rigged mine up so I can hang the summer sausage vertically from some wood rods. There is a guide I found online a while back that explains how to increase the temperature on the smoker incrementally until the sausage reaches a specific internal temp. I've always followed that guide and had great results. I also use an A-Maze-N smoker tray in the masterbuilt which works great.

I smoke mine. You just have to keep a real close eye on internal temp and check in several spots whether you do it in the oven or the smoker because you will have varying temps. Worst thing you can do is render out the fat.

I'd say worst thing you can do is not cook it enough... been there done that and rendering a little fat is definitely better than not getting it hot enough.

Yup, I agree with this. I always have some fat render out, never results in dry sausage.
