Looks good.  How dang many deer was that?  I love deer summer and Polish sausage.  It's the best.

Just one ham, the neck, and two shoulders from an 8 point buck for the sausages. The two back straps, "loin", made the jerky.

Oh good heavens.....   Looks like its time for a trip south again!    I recognize that smoker! The stories it could tell if it could talk!

Now that  is some good eating, what did you use for casings? A buddy of mine makes jerky out of deer hamburger that is some good stuff, the only problem with it is you don't have to chew on it as much and you can over eat on it. :laugh: Jack

Whaaaaaat?/?//////?????

  You used backstrap to make Jerky?!? That would have been cause for divorce in my house.
 
   Back straps get cut into 1/2 inch slices against the grain, floured, salt and pep, a sprinkle of cinnamon, in and out of a hot cast iron skillet... never touches a plate  :) :) :)

    Oh Maaaaaan,

Yaaaah, but we use scrapes for jerky! Have even made pemmican with the scrapes, I love venision pemmican.

Can't do the backstrap for jerky Iddee, sooory  ;D  But on the other hand, I do know that you bring in several deer, so backstrap might not be as valuable. We bring in 1 or 2 deer, so backstraps are like tbone steaks around here  ;D

Bow season has been in for 10 days. I have gotten 3 eight pointers and a six pointer so far. We can fry only so many back straps. We still have loins frozen fro last year, even after giving away a lot of meat. The hunters I know that kill more than they can use bring them to me. They know I have people that need and appreciate the free ""groceries"".

"They know I know people that appreciate the free groceries."

I have one group of men that come and take feral pigs out of my traps and make sausage out of them.  They then give the sausage (link sausage and salami) to the needy people in our community.  They probably do 25 or 30 pigs a year.  They do a real service for our community and for me.  I seldom have to throw away a trapped pig.

When I see Boston Butts on sale I buy some for these fellows and they make pulled pork for the less fortunate. 

As an aside, I have found a way to make pulled pork in a slow cooker (crock pot).
