    I got mine at the Mexican Deli on E Street in Chula Vista by Coinmart Jewelry. The butcher even gave me a couple of bags of different seasoning because he thought it was cool that I was making my own.

    I found casings at Kalens. I also had the one of the butchers cut me 5lbs of pig fat. I didnt realize that Kalens is basicaly a Mexican market. They had a bunch of authentic Mexican food stuff. Even freash Mexican dougnuts ant the tacos were $1 each and they are just like the ones you get down in TJ but they are actualy a little bigger. Realy cool store.
    Anyways I spent all night making meat, I made 3 different jerky's and 3 differnt snack sticks and a couple different types of sausage. I have a lot of smoking to do. I did cook up a breakfast sausage patty and Damn is it good. I cant even tell its deer. Of course I like the taist of deer but damn this stuff is good!

    Whatever you do - use natural casings.

    Also, my family adds some pork to the mixture for improved texture and flavor. Also, sometimes bacon fat (just a little) for added flavor.

    We season with salt, pepper, garlic, onion, thyme, and oregano.

    Ok here is my rough recipe for breakfast sausage.
    10 lbs of meat. Aporox 8 1/2 lbs of deer + 1 1/2 of pig fat trimmings.
    1/4 cup salt
    Tblspn paparika
    Tblspn cayenne
    Tblspn Fennel/anis seed
    2 Tblspn black pepper
    1/2 cup teriaki
    1/2 cup brown sugar.
    mix it all up and make patties mmmm yummy
    I said rough recipe because I actualy used a regular big spoon and I didnt weight the meat, just a guestimate but it came out GOOD

    Try the Northgate Markets for fat and casings.
    I get belly and back pork fat for my sausage, and use unsalted natural casings. As far as the fat goes I won't use bacon unless I want some smoke flavor in the sausage.
    And don't forget to try some before you stuff the casings also let it sit overnight in the fridge so the flavors will blend together.

    This web site is a good start for everything.

    Good luck!

    The sausage maker web site: sausagemaker.com I have used casings from them at my shop and also "Lems" has casings. The size you need depends on what kind of sausage you are making. Italian sausage is generally in apx 30-35mm size. Breakfast style is in a smaller size, apx 22-26mm. Good luck and have fun!-Jim da Butcher
