That looks great! I’m curious, your link doesn’t work for me so I went straight to the site. Are you using the “Bacon Ground and Formed” recipe mix or the “Venison Bacon” recipe mix? Thanks, and I look forward to trying it.
I ordered the Venison bacon mix the first time and accidently ordered the ground and formed mix the second time. I called the guy and he said that the seasoning were exactly the same but have different labels on it. For some reason people would not try it if it didnt have vension on the label.
You’re right that link doesnt work anymore. They changed up their website. This is a link to the 25 lb kit. You can order it in 25, 50 or 100 lbs. It comes with cure also.

Rich, you have to give this stuff a try. If you need any help with it just let me know. the seasonings are dirt cheap so I order a bunch to warrant paying the shipping.
Joined: 3/18/2006Thanks for the info. I’ll definitely give this stuff a try, it looks interesting. Thanks for walking through the process with your photos, just looking at them makes me want to try this stuff out. I’ll let you know when I get around to it, I had shoulder surgery a week ago so I’m laid up for a little while!
Joined: 12/22/2008My processor does a great job and my family just loves the venison bacon. Most of my hunting buddies had never heard of venison bacon but raved about it after trying it. It cooks up so lean and tastes GREAT. Thanks for the recipe!
Venison bacon is something I always get made at the processor. I think I’m getting 30 pounds of it back this year. What I really like is that it only takes about 2 minutes on the grill and it is done perfectly.
Guess what I finally got around to a little over a year later!
Rave rave reviews from my house! I ordered this seasoning last year right after we read your post. It just looked so good in the pictures. And it is great! I am very impressed. I just ran some over to the neighbors to let them try some also, and they thought it was great too.
We used regular cake pans during our process and struggled getting the meat out of them after it was set up. Next time I will line the cake pan with saran wrap, flip the meat over onto the racks, and slowly peel the saran wrap away. Other than that everything went very smooth.
I just wanted to pass along a “thanks” for sharing this thread and for anyone standing on the fence considering making this stuff, go for it. You will not be sorry.

Joined: 6/25/2004I still get some strange looks when I say I have venison bacon.Great stuff!!I get mine from my local processor…..wonderful job he does.We’ve found that putting itin the oven on broil or bake for a short period works better than the frying pan.First time I got it made was about 3 years ago………can’t do without it now.

Pork sausage with no seasonings. I usually grind boston butts because they have a good ratio of meat/fat.
Joined: 8/26/2011I use pork trim instead of plain pork sausage and I also put it into some of my wifes Pyrex glass pans. I then spray the pan with cooking spray and then I lay a piece of wax paper in the pan and then put in the meat. This helps with the meat coming out onto your smoker racks the next day!
And then I smoke it with some apple wood… good stuff! You got to try some!
Joined: 4/25/2007I just smoked some last weekend with Hickory,, WOW is it good
