This is almost exactly like the summer sausage that has been handed down to me by my grandparents. It is the best sausage I have ever eaten! Our recipe uses garlic salt instead of garlic powder and has 1/2 teaspoon of black peppercorns per pound of meat. It is really good when made with ground turkey too. That is the way I usually make it these days.

Oh my goodness. I can't believe how easy this is to make and how wonderful it tastes. Thank you for this recipe. I took 3 logs to Christmas Eve and Christmas Dinner and there was none left. My brother was asking me to make some with some deer meat he had. I will be making a lot of this and putting it in my freezer for a quick snack for unexpected guests. I bought 10 pounds of hamburger to make some so I would have it for New Year's Eve. I think I will add jalepenos to one batch. Thanks again for this easy recipe.
