Need good beef sausage ingredients

I'm trying to make beef smoked sausage links and need some advice on 70/30 fat to meat ratio plus ingredients and spices. :chef:

I've included a link to beef sausage recipes that explains what fat/lean ratio should be. Most of the old sausage makers down through the Hill Country, mostly German and Czech, generally used only 3-5 seasonings. Black pepper, salt and garlic being the top three. Along with red pepper flake and paprika. Since you didn't mention what style of sausage you were aiming for the site covers several types. Hope this helps and let us know how it turns out. http://www.lets-make-sausage.com/all-beef-sausage.html

I would omit the Sage but that's just a personal taste preference :dont: :salut:
