I am going to smoke some venison/pork snack sticks this weekend, I have been reading here that most people give the sticks a ice cold water bath after taking out of the smoker to drop the temp. I am curious if that is entirely necessary? I have done three different batches in the past and two of the batches the casings seperated from the meat and wrinkled up, the sticks did not snap at all. Could the water bath be the reason for this happening! I don't want to make the same mistake, this is the venison from this years hunt! Any help or suggestions would be great! Thanks.
