for the salami sausage. I wouldn't quite call it salami, in my opinion it turns out more like a summer sausage, just a bit drier because its so lean, but I thought the flavor was excellent. I've made it from deer and/or elk plus some regular ground beef. I did not add extra beef fat though.
Thanks for the post! I tried a summer sausage kit from Bass Pro Shop that came with seasoning, cure, and casings. It turned out very good and the cost was around $15 to make 10#.
I would still like to try making some from scratch if anyone has a secret recipe!
If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
