first batch of vension snack sticks

  1. first batch of snacks sticks, a lot of work. i used a lem jerky cannon with a 3/8 inch nozzle to fill the casting, using sausage maker brand for snack sticks.

    smoked these snack sticks with cheddar cheese and jalapenos, the flavor was very good.

    made two different flavors, 1 with just cheese and snack stick recipe for the misses, then 1 with peppers and cheese for yours truly,here are some pictures of the sticks all smoked up.

    my old lang stick burner smoker started at 125 degrees, i held it there for 2 hours, then increased it by 10 degrees every hour, then when i reached 165 degrees i held it there to finish the sticks at the internal temp of 160 degrees. pretty juicy.

    thanks for all the people here on this forum, that answered my column to make this all possible.

    thanks again

    Looks great.
  12. wazzuqer i started off at 120 degrees for the first hour then i went up 10 degrees every hour.when i reached 160 degrees i held it there until it reached internal temp of 155-160. all together it took about 5 hours. its pretty hard to work a stick burner at these temps, small fire and small pieces of oak.
  13. mr farmer thanks for the kind words.

  14. DL,

    they look great, glad to see you worked out the tube issue. we these 16mm or 19mm? it is a challenge getting the cheese thru the tube at times[​IMG]   [​IMG]

    Keep On Smokin,

  15. oregon smoker these are 16mm castings, and yes, putting the tube over the other tube worked fine. thanks for the advice
