I will never go back to lebanon locker. thought they did an awful job on each deer they have done for me. One last year and one the year before. And their shop smells bad and my meat ended up with that smell and taste to it.

I talked to a friend yesterday for awhile that has worked in deer processors on and off over the years. He started doing it primarily to get good at cutting up deer, now he does it on the side when he needs some extra cash. He said that, having worked in multiple processing shops, he would never, ever, under any circumstance EVER take a deer to a deer processor.

The guy that does mine charges $20 per stick of summer sausage ,$20 for 1lb bag of jerky and $15 per 1 lb bag of slim jims. Two deer earlier in bow season made 15 sticks of sausage and 6 bags of slim jims that equaled about $400. He also makes some of the best sausage there is. It's well worth it. He also charges $55 for processing (steaks,burger and such) per deer

Which ones did he work for? This way we will know for certain which ones to avoid. \:\)

Holy smokes, that's pretty high.

I got a 3lb tube of jalapeno and cheddar summer sausage made last week for 8 bucks.

People pay it and have been for years. The sticks are probably 24" by 3" across.

You know, summer sausage is not difficult to make. If you have a grinder and a smoker, you can make it pretty easily. The only ingredient that you will likely have to order is Fermento, which is just a couple of bucks. You do have to do it over a couple of days and it requires two grinding sessions.

Michael Ruhlman's book Charcuterie will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about sausage making and then some. Its not game recipes, but all of the recipes can be adapted for game meats if you add a little pork or beef fat here and there.

Deer Masters in Rossville, GA has been doing my deers for the last 5 years. Can't say enough good things about them. Plus it is only $65.00


Does the $65 include ground meat?


Yes but he usually does 2 lb packages so I ask for 1 lb packages
