Rated as 3.36 out of 5 Stars

"This is a ground beef summer sausage you can make at home. It takes a while, but have you seen the prices of store bought summer sausage?! This recipe is well worth the wait. You can also wrap them in foil and freeze them."

I halved this recipe just in case we didn't like it. But Man oh man is this stuff good. Its easy to make. The only time-consuming part is waiting for the beef and seasonings to meld in the fridg...

I omitted the MSG, and should have added some garlic salt. On the one hand, the taste was pretty good, but the presentation is absolutely awful (I'm sure I don't have to spell it out, hehe). I t...

Overall good flavor but tasted a little flat. I'll add some salt next time to see if that helps. Also, I cooked at 170 for 4 hours and it was browning nicely but still pretty raw in the middle ...

Wasn't too bad. Didn't turn out like I expected and it seemed rather greasy.

Mu sister in-law makes this every Christmas, she cooks it at 250 for 2 hours and shapes the logs and lets it sit overnight - it is awesome and turns out quite well.

Hubs made three batches of this over the weekend. He made it with beef for the first go around and then used it for venison and wild duck. For the wild game you must add fat but I won't go there...

Turned the heat up a little as the meat stayed raw. Found out the MSG was not a good idea. MSG = headache :(

Will make again was very tasty didn’t use msg use cure salt cook at 170 for 4 hour my stove wouldn’t do 150, have grass fed beef very little grease cook off
