Ok....so I just want to get this right.....if I run through the process that I think is right then please let me know so...Cheers!

If using from frozen meat supply....par thaw and process/mince...keeping everything cold....stuff and make sausage and "prove" or "Bloom" sausage in fridge overnight....Then cryvac to then either refreeze or keep in fridge for a week or so.

I would liken Roo meat very much to Venison.....No fat ..just protein....Strong gamey flavor
Yes..the males are stronger in flavor and I was expecting this one to be on the nose a bit but because I was processing par thawed it hardly smelt at all
This was a lump of Rump that had been taken from a roo that was hung for a few days before butchering
I kept this recipe really simple as I wanted to get the most taste from the meat content first time round so that I know what flavor I'm dealing with.

Recipe:
Kangaroo rump and Pork shoulder at 50/50 ratio
to 4 kilos of total meat and fat weight:

tbs. smoked paprika
tbs. ground dried bush tomato
tbs. mountain pepper
2 percent salt to total meat weight.....( I think I would use 1.75 percent next time)
tbs. fresh diced garlic
10.5 grams pink salt (to 4 kilos of total meat)
7 metres of natural Hog casing
1 cup of ice water

Looks good Aaron....Did that lovely lady come to demo the new mincer ?

I would cut the salt back to 1.5% if it was too salty.

If it is a fresh sausage and not smoked you could also eliminate the cure (pink salt).

Thanks Bob and Jan for your posts
Yes Bob!...I think Karen should become the local agent for Double M Mincers....She could sell a few I reckon!!!!
Thanks for the tips on pink salt...I would have rather not put it in but I was sort of guided by the books I've been reading such as 'Charcuterie'.
I agree about the salt content down to 1.5.....my 2 percent was way over the top for my liking.

Jan
Why don't you PM me when you get home to arrange a Roo Sausage BBQ and a beer!

Venison isn't too different from Roo Butterbean......We have a Farmer here who breeds Venison so I have tried both and they are both extremely lean dark red meats..I'm sure there are taste differences to wild Vs Farmed though

Aaron, I can recommend Kangaroo in any smallgoods as long as you have the right fat content, it can be very dry otherwise. On the weekend I made some Venison and Kangaroo Smoked Summer Sausage from the Len Poli recipe, it is the second time I have made this smoked sausage, it is sensational, I used Sambar Deer (2.7kgs) and Kangaroo (1.0kgs) and 900 gms of free range shoulder pork fat for roughly a 10lb recipe. I smoked it using a blend of Hickory chips and River Sheoak which has a strong flavor too, the smoked sausage was rested overnight in the fridge and vacuum packed yesterday, the flavor will improve with time and it will probably last me a month or two, depending on who get's a sniff that I have got some. I also made some Braunschweiger from the Rytek Kutas book using the same combination of meats, it to is sensational, good luck with your venture. Oh, I also added 2 cups of full cream milk powder to the recipes as a binding agent, it is just perfect.

That sounds really bloody nice ....Sambar Deer??...Not sure if I can score that but I can substitute with local venison perhaps.....
Well Done a good effort me thinks! :mrgreen:
I know that I can start on line ordering meat from NSW ect but we have so much on offer here it's easier just to change the recipe a little and keep it local.

What's your next project??

Differences even with wild deer but in all I think about the same. I have one place I hunt where the deer meat has been a pale ham color yet all deer taken from another farm have been dark fleshed. I attribute difference mainly to diet.

Have you made any pasturma with the roo yet?

No..I haven't made Pasturma...I've ony just starting to make sausage.
I started off doing Bacon, Pancetta, Bresaola etc along with pates, terrines an rillettes So My Roo and Pork shoulder was only my second attempt at sausage making!
