I bought a Eastman Outdoors Smoke Summer Sausage kit from WM. Wife read the instructions and we went to town, mixed it 85/15 with bacon ends and bits. It says 4 steps: grind, mix, regrind/stuff, refrigerate. There are no other instructions.

Is that truly it? No cooking, no smoking, nothing else? There is cure in it, but you would think there would be a time it needed to set? Anyway, I'm clueless and the wife is totally freaked out over "RAW" venison and pork. I must say I'm a little apprehensive too.
