This is my brother, Steven, mixing the pork and venison. The meat very cold, so he is wearing insulated gloves.
Barb brought out the spices ready to be added.
Steven and Brian are mixing as I add the spices.
Steven and Brian are grinding the meat.
All ground and ready for stuffing!
I'm putting the casings onto the stuffers spout.
Steven is turning the crank while I guide the sausage.
Look at all that sausage!
Pop is giving Brian a lesson in his tying technique. He learned it at the Living History Farm in Johnson City.
Ready to smoke! We use Pop's pumphouse on property across and down the road as our smokehouse.
The guys hung the links on the poles.
Then they hung the poles from the ceiling.
The sausage is all hung and waiting for smoke.
