Game sausage

Recommended Posts

Any recipes?

Currently have a chest freezer far too full of mainly Phesant and some Partridge. All lead shot.

We have a mince machine and a sausage machine, just need to buy some skins.

The Mrs says mix with Pork fat but I'm not sure what ratio to use or what else to add.

I like a meaty sausage🤣 ..........did I really just put that?

Any help gratefully received.

Reviews from a certain restaurant have been brilliant and i intend to enter a competition in the coming months just to see how they compare with the pro's.

Whatever mix/recipe you make, fry a little up before you make your burgers or sausages just to check seasoning and texture

Yep works a treat. Some belly pork strips from Aldi and I use about 25% pork to game meat....everything goes in the mix from venison off cuts through to pigeon breasts. Course grind and sprinkle seasoning on the meat and I marinade it as well prior to grinding. Mix well and push it in the skins. Big fat skins are best in my view.  Have a look on the Web. I have mentioned it before on here and I know one or two members have acquired some.  Tony Chacheres's Cajun Mix goes well with everything but game meats especially.

It's great fun experimenting so don't be stuck by one persons idea. I have never wasted anyhting to date and done some seriously wierd mixtures ....apricots in game pie for instance, so yes try some apple in your sausage mix.

I’ve just had 3 pigs go to the abbatoir and had a couple kilos spare fat left over. I offered it out to anyone local on a  Facebook group who might be making game sausages. Hope you aren’t in south west wales otherwise you just missed out! 

I used to work on a deli and when opening cooked hams on the bone we used to have to cut off the bulk of the fat and bin it! I used to take it home and make my own game sausages. Ask your local butcher if they can get you ‘real’ sausage skins, a bit better than synthetic imo

Thanks everybody, looks like its belly pork going in plus seasoning. Apple in one batch at least.

Never thought about pigeon breast, my son shot just over 200 recently, unfortunately he gave them to a local guy as one batch.

You can even chop up some black pudding. I find doing that separately works better than putting it through the grinder...bits about 3/16 or so are perfect, just stir them in once the mix is ready.  Don't forget to knot the skin before pumping the mix through or it gets very messy ...... only did it once:lol:

Use hog skins, rinse by flushing with water. Put skin over the tap and run it slow, then soak for a couple of hrs. 

Make the mix moist you will find it easier. 

I used to make sausages so know a bit. 😉

For sausages 50% pork belly to game, can go to 1/3 pork belly if wanted. Use the weight of meat mixed when applying the mix. Otherwise too lean. 

Don't grind twice unless very corse of you have a powdery sausage. An excellent way to use up game.

Just got a Kenwood off eBay with a mincer, bought the sausage nozzles and some casings. Had a go this afternoon, blew the motor on the Kenwood😏, should be on speed 4, not 1 apparently🙄.( too much torque I guess)

Anyway borrowed another, had a hell of a time putting mince mix through a second time to fill the casings. Any tips people, do I just buy a dedicated sausage machine, or one of those syringe stuffers?

I wanted to make low salt, low fat, coarse meat sausages, ended up with puréed ones.

The flavour mixes weren’t bad though, so it’s a start.
