Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix beef, curing mixture, mustard seed, garlic powder, cayenne, red pepper flakes, salt, and liquid smoke. Cover with plastic, and refrigerate for three days, mixing well once a day.
  2. On the fourth day, preheat oven to 200 degrees F (100 degrees C).
  3. Shape the mixture into five logs, and place on a wire rack over a large drip pan. Bake for eight hours, then remove to cool on paper towels. Let cool, then wrap logs individually in plastic wrap. Chill completely before slicing. They also freeze well.

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.

This is a wonderful recipe. The whole family love it. I changed nothing about it. It smells so good I almost hated waiting the 3 days, but do it because it is definetly worth it. Thanks so Much.

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.
