Anyone out there have a good recipe for deer sausage that takes out most of the wild game taste. My wife doesn't care for the wild taste, but sure likes the sausage ;-)

Yeah, but it took me about 7 yrs to get the recipe from my cousin's boyfriend so I cant give it away.    Funny how protective people are with their recipes.

First thing is to take care of the meat properly in the field! I have not had a so called "wild" tasting venison in years! Now adays most of our deer are feeding on alfalfa, soybeans and corn! Thats alot better than alot of our feedlot beef!!! I also mix most of my sausage with 40% pork. I buy my seasonings from PS Seasonings in Wisconsin, if you do a web search you"ll find their online catalog! Their seasonings are some of the best in the business!  I also smoke my own and then vacumn pack everything!  Following this formula I have sausage that is excellent! Better than the commercial stuff out there and I know whats in it!!!!!

She was hoping for some German sausage. The mule deer here in Eastern Montana eat alot of prairie grass, sagew and other wild tasting things so the meat does get a gamey taste around here.

Out here i guess if you want a big rack then you have to put up with the gamey taste of the big mulies. The whitetails on the other hand are always raised on corn, alfalfa and sugar beets so they taste quite a bit better.

Sorry, that is one I have never made. I highly suggest picking up "Great Sausage Recipes & Meat Curing" 4th edition by Rytek Kutas. To me it is a must own to anyone who is interested in making sausage.

Also you may want to check out the following 2 links -

 50%pork and 50% deer helps. Adding a few pounds of beef tallow helps tame the muley flavor down. I hardly hear anyone say my venison sausage tastes gamey. It is always made from mule deer.

processing a critter right is more important than what they eat imho
I shot a mulie buck west of Jordan about 50 miles, had it processed at Ryan's in Jordan and there was no gamey taste at all

I hope she isn't reading this cuz if she is you are in big trouble. 'Doesn't care for the wild taste, but sure likes sausage"  "Hoping for German Sausage"  ; )

CORKSCREW,

I second any recipe Mossy puts out there.  By all accounts he is a tried and true wild game chef.


I hear ya on the mule deer.  Years ago when I hunted the Cherry Creek area east of Watford we would occassionally run into a real sagey mule deer.  Haven't had a problem with that for a long time now.  Not really sure why as many of the mule deer I have taken in the last 6-7 years have come from some pretty rugged stuff with tons of sage around and not much alfalfa or crops.

p.s.  Of course, rule #1 is to never shoot a deer that has been run.  That will really impart a "wild" taste.
