DUCK SUMMER SAUSAGE

I recently de-boned 42 ducks that I had left over from two seasons ago. I decided instead of letting them go to waste I would try my hand at summer sausage. I ended up with 15lbs of duck meat that I ground up and mixed it with 15lbs of pork shoulder that I ground as well. I then had to use a tupperware storage container to mix the seasonings into the meat since I didn't have a food container large enough. After it was mixed well I re-ground the meat a third time on a fine grind plate and then stuffed the casings. Since my stuffer is for sausage-link and bratwerst size casings I finally gave up and stuffed the summer sausage by hand. I hung them for half a day then smoked half with maple wood and the other half with cherry wood.

Is it any good? I also hunt ducks and was thinking about trying something different with the meat as well. Think it would be good with goose meat?

Hell yes it's good. The meat is actually a blend of duck and goose (honker and specklebelly) The fat in the pork shoulder gives it just enough moisture so the meat didn't dry out when I smoked it. I used cherry and maple wood to give the smoke a sweet flavor, and it did.

The only thing I would do different is I wouldn't cut the meat 50/50 If I have 15lbs of duck meat next time, I will only use 10lbs of pork. I can taste the duck meat a LITTLE, but would like to have more of a game taste to the sausage. Each log is 5lbs of meat, and I ate one by myself in one day! ITS GOOD!

I wouldn't go anywhere near him if I were you, Goose. He'll have you stuffed in on of those things!!!!

Too bad I don't care for summer sausage, or else I'd be asking or some.

Alan has proven that he is the sausage master last weekend.
