    I'm watching too. I've made mince with bacon ends at about 1:3 ratio worked well. Brilliant in a bolognaise! Sausages next....

    I helped out my mate Grunter while he made some earlier in the week. Our first time, quite a fiddly process all in all i reckon, but you have the beauty of playing around with small batches eh.

    He used some mutton fat from the last one we killed which was way over fat. But much of the fat seemed to come out during cooking?

    I believe the butcher's I use for my sausages use beef fat with venison as mutton fat is quite strong flavoured and over powers the venison.

    Pork belly fat is my favourite. I've used bacon ends too but they give a strong bacon flavour which may or may not be desired.

    Fat coming off during cooking is good. Good sausages should be able to go onto a dry hot pan and provide enough fat of their own to cook in

    Best game sausages I have ever had were buck Chamois, made with muton flaps, chilli and garlic.
    I still get pestered by friends as to when we will get more done.
    Was very surprised how good they were.

    Approx 25% fat at least, I've found works best. Pork fat is considered best but mutton is just as good(my best ever batch was when I chucked a dirty old sheep in the mix). Plenty of recipes on the net.
    -Salt,pepper,water
    -Something to bind it with like meal,crushed up biscuits, bread crumbs.Have heard but never tried but if you use enough fat they wont require a binding additive.(for the gluten free)
    -Don't go to crazy by adding too many flavours at once. Keep it simple those basic things will provide most of the flavour.
    - Make them up in small batch's so if there is a stuff up you wont have kilos of yuck sausages and try before you put them in cases.
    -Let it set over night in the fridge before putting them into cases helps with flavour.
    -Don't over fill the cases otherwise they'll split when you twist them up.
    -Don't make the same mistake I did and just bung a whole lot of ingredients in and NOT write anything down and have them turn out awesome. Have never been able to make another batch the same.

    Scoped

    Keep it simple until you've mastered the art of sausage making.

    Keep the raw products and sausage mix cold all the way through the process.

    Cleanliness will be repaid with great sausages.

    Once you've made your sausage mix fry up a couple of meat patties for a taste test before you put it into the casings.

    If the patties taste good then so will the sausages.

    If not then you have a chance to adjust the flavour of the mix to your liking before they become sausages.

    Let us know how you get on.

    Cheers
    Pete
