Area meat processing opinions wanted.

I have some venison trim left over after making sausage this year and was wonder everyone's opinion on best tasting weiners and deer sticks in the area? I have had tried Rods sticks and thought the were decent. I have also tried the Locker. Can't decide between Stittworths, Downtown or Rods (again).

Any recommendations would be great!

NK,

Just got back a huge batch of sticks from Rod's. Been getting them done there for 2 years now, after the locker the prior 2 years. If you want to try some of this years batch stop on over!

Side note, the best sticks I've ever tasted were done by a guy up near Clearbrook. Can't remember the name of the place, but we always had our deer and bear done there until the last 4 years.

You may be thinking of Nelson's Meats in Clearbrook, he does make good beer sticks but dang...that place is sick. The best by far IMO has been Neil's Meats over in McIntosh. It's worth the drive.

I'd say Stittsworth's is the best.

Neils Meats in McIntosh is great. Good results...good pricing...quick turn around...IMO Bemidji does not have a real great plant. They all have certain things that are OK...ie...Stitsworths Brats...Downtowns Burger...Locker Plants Jerky is very unique...Rods Beer sticks are ok,,,but he has very good seasoning for polish....it is all personal prefrence.

      Hey Guys, I'm wondering what the water temp on the St.Croix is. I Haven't herd anything, all I know is that Catfish become inactive after it drops below 60F. I want to know if they have already become inactive, you would think we would at least have until October.    One more inquire,  anyone one know about a nice carp lake north of the metro. Most people don't like fishing for common carp, but they are a great fall fish to catch when they Get 30+ plus pounds.

      All right man I'll make sure to tell you how I do, I have also been looking at the sunrise river. The sunrise Looks like one of those rivers that all the local kids fished in the 80's, But then it got polluted and over fished. I'll Try the sunrise one of these days, I don't know what i'll catch,  Maybe it's like in the Simpsons with those Three eyed fish.    As for the rum river, I can't wait to fish that. I'll wait for a nice cold front when all those small mouth start to eat everything in site, They need the fat for winter. I'll make sure to tell you how it goes.
