Looks fantastic Trahn! I bought some processing equipment but have yet to use it other than the meat lugs for butchering and brining. This was my first time smoking a whole hind deer leg. I was astounded as to how the shank turned out. I thought it would be tough due to all the facia and connective tissue but it came out beautiful. I can’t get over the colors that developed during the process. The shanks of animals are so under rated, IMO. I caught my cousin throwing them in the garbage off of a big buck! Needless to say I tore him a new one. He just wasn’t taught properly I guess, but for sure will not make that mistake again. I’m all ears if anyone has advise for me on recipes or brands of seasonings for different types of sausages / snack sticks etc. or tips on casing types & diameters. I wonder if ground up black trumpets would be good in a sausage?
I wonder if ground up black trumpets would be good in a sausage? From my experience any sausage made in large batches and frozen don't do well with items added besides spices. Now with a small fresh batch to be eaten right away any things game. Happy Stuffing!
Steeler.. My smoker has been running hard for about the last 3 months. Will be doing one last batch of cheese and that will be it until spring. Love making sausage, looking to set up a sausage making party with friends and family next year. This Subject may need it's own thread!
Heading back to the car after flintlock hunting yesterday, I found either a bears head tooth or a lions mane( I am pretty sure it was lions mane) on an oak tree. It was really brown and starting to fall apart. Last week we had a day that was 10 degrees in the morning an that is probably what finished it. I still haven't found one to try.
My buddy and I went birding and not only found some odd bracket gilled mushrooms and late-fall oysters, but also where someone had cut probably a couple of pounds of lion's mane from a path-side tree. In January. Seriously, with this stupid weather!
