Permitted use provided by:


  • 2 lbs ground venison
  • 2 lbs ground pork butt (fatty meat for flavor)
  • 1 large onion, minced
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 1 TBS kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground allspice
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1/2 tsp ground sage
  • 1 tsp marjoram
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 tsp freshly grated black pepper
  • 2/3 cup dark beer (see note below)
  • casings, soaked in water for 2 hours**


Mix the ingredients together and put mixture in food grinder. Turn the grinder on and hold the casing. The casing will fill with air – then squeeze the air out of the casing and tie a knot on the end.

Push the meat mixture through as the casings fill - hold the casing as it coils. Pinch the end of the casing and twist it a few times and tie that end off.

Now you can boil them in beer or water, or grill them for 20 to 30 minutes.

**After soaking, rinse thoroughly by placing the end of the casing opening over the water faucet and rinse it that way.
