Our friend bagged a little Bambi while bow hunting a few weeks ago. He yielded about 30 lbs. of the most succulent meat you can imagine. Yesterday, we turned most of Bambi into about 20 lbs. of sausage--about 6 lbs. of straight venison chorizo (a spicy Mexican sausage with lots of cumin, cloves, cinnamon, ginger, garlic, etc.) and a basic link, half pork and half venison, with a worcestershire/hot sauce/green onion seasoning base. We used the Kitchenaid food grinder attachment with the sausage nozzles and purchased hog casings. It was the first time any of us had made sausage before, and it really was a snap, so if you're on the fence about whether to try your luck at it, give it a try! What a productive way to spend an afternoon with friends.
