    Default looking for a deer processor

    Does anyone know of a deer processor that is open on Sundays? Needs to be somewhere close to Lexington, Madison co. Rockcastle co. Pulaski co. Areas. Or maybe a way to find a list of of butchers, and address.

    If you get over toward Lawrenceburg in Anderson county, Markwells is one of the best I have seen. Clean, excellent work, quick processing, great sticks and sausage

    Second vote for Markwells. If you like spicey food, he makes some fine breakfast sausage and jalapeno summer sausage.

    There is one up in Crab Orchard. I cannot think of his name, Amish guy.

    I am going to have to make the trip this year. I have yet to try a breakfast sausage that was better than "meh" excluding one batch of my own. I've made bout 6 batches and they were just ok except for the venison gut sausage that I made and smoked one time. It was great but a lot of work....made 42 lbs of it.

    I will tell you this. If you don't really enjoy eating hot, sit and talk with him before you commit. He makes some very good sausage, and if you ask for hot, you better understand what he calls hot. It's nothing I can't handle, but the family didn't like the heat.

    I use the hot sausage in baked beans with sweet baby rays, mustard, brown sugar and jalapenos. It's simple, and most folks seem to like it.

    surely he has samples doesn't he? We like hot in my household. Jalapenos are candy for me and my son and the wife likes them too. Daughter may not like but she's gaining ground on heat tolerance. How much per lb?

    I don't recall prices, but it didn't seem out of line. I had some regular sausage, hot sausage, summer sausage with hot pepper jack and pepper, summer sausage with jalapeno and hot pepperjack and pepper made last year. I basically told him everything that wouldn't make a steak or chop to grind into equal parts of everything listed above.

    Yes, he has samples. I suggest calling him now, and paying a visit to sample his goods. Take a drink along with you, you may need it.
