Summer Sausage

Grandma got this recipe from her sister-in-law, Bessie Bridges.  Bessie married Vernon Bridges, Grandpa's brother.  She lives in Puxico, MO.

5 lbs. hamburger
5 heaping tsp. Mortons Tender Quick
4 1/2 heaping tsp. mustard seed
4 tsp. black pepper
3 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. red pepper
2 Tbsp. liquid smoke

Mix well.  separate into three balls.  Put into double plastic bags. Incorporate well each day for 3 days(smoosh it up).  On the 4th day take out and divide into 3 rolls.  Place in 200 degree oven for 6-8 hours (after 3-4 hours turn over).  Use common judgement in turning and shaping rolls.
