Fantastic Summer Sauage
I had never processed my own deer in the past. My son-in-law talked me into buying a meat grinder and sausage stuffer and he would help me the first year. I saw the Hi Mountain Sausage kit available with that same company and thought I would give it a try. The first year I made one 30 lb kit. The next year I was bound and determined that I would make up 2 kits worth.
I use very lean meat and trim all the fat off the pork that is blended in. I have also added several different items such as cheddar cheese, pepperjack cheese, ground up jalapenos, and dried onion flakes. Some is left with the original flavor as it is supurb as well.
My sausage comes out so delicious, everyone ask me how to do it and beg for handouts. The meat is so greaseless, it's great to snack on while playing cards without the cards getting all messed up.
I have people who try it, claiming they don't like venison, that will go back for more. I would be very hard pressed to ever try anything different than the Hi Mountain kit.

After making a killer batch of summer sausage using the Backwoods seasoning, I wasted over 3 pounds of beautiful ground venison and a pound of pork using this blend of tasteless powder. I measured carefully, adding a bit more than called for, and hickory smoked it for about 8 hours. The meat was done to perfection, but lacked any flavor whatsoever. Stick with the Backwoods, and just roll the product into 2-3 inch logs. Don't worry about the synthetic casings.

Poor taste, no taste
Let me start of by saying that I do use a lot of Hi Mountain products. I love the jerky, and snackin stick kits. Those snakin stick kits are the best there is in my opinion! Excellent taste. HOWEVER the summer sausage kit is absolutely horrible. The snackin sticks taste more like summer sausage than this does. This has a slight pepper taste and even then you can hardly notice it. There just isn't enough flavoring to do it justice. What flavoring there is in the sausage after it is cooked is horrible and not even close to that summer sausage taste I am so use to. I was very dissappointed in this summer sausage kit, and will not buy it again. I will continue to use the snackin sticks and other kits from Hi Mountain but I will avoid this one. Now I need to find someone that doesn't mind the bland taste and wants almost 24 pounds of summer sausage, what a waste of meat.
