We process all at home, but I do like spicy food so those sticks sound good. Took me 2 weeks to fill my 4 available archery tags until muzzleloader (just 1 buck allowed). My wife would not appreciate 4 deer hanging in the barn the same day since she is the field dresser and butcher. When I said "we" above, I meant her:)

I used to do it all at home, to include making summer sausage and sticks. Then came the day I had 16 slabs of pork spareribs in the smoker for a family BBQ and it went up in smoke. Literally. I let the water pan run run dry and it burned to the ground. It was a home-made thing and worked great, but it was 100% manual control and required constant attention.

Since then I do the butchering, but I have the sausage and sticks done at the locker plant. I could recoup the cost of a large commercial unit over three or four deer seasons, but the older I get the happier I am to trade some dead presidents for my time and the effort involved in making my own sausage. I have a Traeger pellet smoker that works really well for making jerky so I still do that myself.

I get the time versus cash thing. I do a lot less of those things that I do not enjoy these days too. I still do some of these things when its hard to find someone to do something well or the cost is really high. On this one, its my wife's call since she does the work.
