Default sausage preparation?

I got a couple sticks of elk sausage from my boss at work. The first stick was real " wet" when i unfroze it and unwraped it. I let it sit out for a couple of days with the paper off it to dry but it got real hard and not good. The inside was good, but the outside was all tough and almost frezer burned, kinda like how cheese gets if you let it sit out. How do you guys dry your sausage?
thanks, ak

Maybe it is not wet it is greasy which means he cooked ia too high of a temp. and the fat melted and turned to grease. That happens if you let the temp. in the smoke house go above 160 degrees. Also if that happens the sausage tends to be dry and crumbly.Because all the sold fat was lost.
