If I had to pick my favorite recipe in the "Zaar" website...This is it. I made homemade deer snack sticks from a seasoning kit I ordered through Cabelas. They were pretty good just plain. However, after making this brine and soaking them in it for a couple days, they were incredible. They reminded me of the hot sausages I used to buy at a local tavern years ago. I've used this recipe 3 times now, the only minor adjustments I've made is I doubled the garlic and pack either sliced pickled banana peppers or pepperchini peppers in with my sausages. Ive not had a person try them yet that didn't think they were some of the best "hot sausages" they've ever had, and nobody believes me when I tell them it's deer sausage.
