9 lbs ground deer meat
9 lbs pork sausage [2lbs was the jimmy dean spicy]
1/2 cup of Morton Tender
3 tablespoons of mustard seed
3 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons black pepper
2 tablespoons of peppercorns
2 tablespoons of liquid smoke

mix it all together in large mixing bowl
cover with foil and put in fridge for 3 days
take it out every day and mix it good all the way through

OVEN
make it into 1 pound logs and place on roaster pan
cover with foil and cook at 200 degrees for 5 to 6 hours and 165 inside temp
let cool and place in fridge overnight

SMOKER
Place 1 pound logs on top rack of smoker
fill water pan with 4 qts hot water, 2 beers, minced onion, garlic salt, cayenne pepper, onion salt, and black pepper
smoke for 7 hours or until meat is 165 degrees
let cool and place in fridge overnight

We did one batch in the oven and another on the smoker. The batch from the oven was good but the batch off the smoker was GREAT. I have another batch on the smoker now and we added 2 cans of chopped green chilis to it. I will let you know how it turns out. :D:D

And remember, Mortons Tender Quick, Instacure #1, or other curing agent (per package directions), is very important. Without that theres a great risk of Botulism.
