Old Fashioned Summer Sausage DIY Bundle


Good old fashioned summer sausage made with Salt and Pepper. This easy kit takes the guesswork out of making a classic meat snack.

With a perfect amount of Salt and Pepper seasoning, Sodium Nitrite cure, Encapsulated Citric Acid to give your summer sausage that familiar 'tang' flavor, and enough casings for 25 lbs, add meat and you're ready to go!

We make ours with all beef, but you can use venison, elk or bison and mix partially with pork trim too! Aim for fat content totaling around 20% by weight.

We've also included dried minced garlic, and if you like, add some jalapeno, red pepper, onion, sage (around 1-2 oz of most herbs & spices), or any combination you like into 25 lbs of meat.

Also great with our high temp cheeses mixed in!

Very good recipe made some with hi temp cheese that I didn't really care for as much but the other is fantastic everybody loves it. Next time leaving out cheese and adding spice to make it warmer (for wife and kids)I like it just the way it is. Any idea on spice for a little heat?
