    I would like to see a new section for cooking wild game, cast iron skillet/pot cooking, smoking, camp fire cooking or things of this nature.

    I just fully processed my first deer today. It was a spike and not exactly large. It still took me many hours. Since it was my first time I stuck with Sausage, jerky, pan sausage, and i did a few mixes of hamburger/pork grinds for random things( i like meatballs and spicy Italian type dished)

    Anyway the pan sausage turned out great, as well as all the other grinds I did. The jerky is currently soaking right now and has an awesome flavor. I have made beef jerky for many years so I am confident in my process.

    I am having a problem with the sausage links though. The flavor is there and man do they taste good, however I guess I did the grind to thin? I just do not like the texture.

    Anyway if any of you guys out there process your own venison and have any tips for me regarding sausage or anything for that matter I would sure appreciate the help.

    I still have some frozen venison and I plan on giving it another shot when I get home from a short family vacation next week.

    Just in case someone is going to ask I did:

    50 - 50 venison to pork mix

    I would really love to try and get close to the hudson meat market style sausage in Austin if anyone is familiar.

    I'd have to agree that a cooking section would be good. Maybe not strictly for wild game but BBQ and other cooking to. I mean maybe separate them into sub forums like BBQ, General cooking, and Cooking wild game. Something like that. Great idea Austex.

    I am not so sure about this.
    I already spend 5 - 8 hr a day on this site and with the addition of a cooking forum - hell I'll never go to bed.

    We could also do the camp fire cooking. and maybe grilling and smoking sub forums instead of just BBQ.

    Might be a nice addition to the place. Anybody woken up Alan yet?

    I think he's working at Reds all day today.

    I never cook, but I wouldn't mind seeing something like that either.
    Heck it might inspire me to start cooking.
    BBQ though. I could always use tips on that.
    I say go for it.
