    Made a batch of Honey BBQ snack sticks using Owens Honey BBQ. I also added black pepper & white pepper to the mix. Smoked with Hickory....

    Is this a mix or did you make it up yourself.  I'm interested in a recipe.  Got to make a batch of sticks.  I'm out.  Would you recommend putting cheese in these?

    I found the website.  Figured I'd give them a try.  Honey BBQ sounds good.  I'm adding cheese, too.  Wish me luck.

    Not a real fan of cheese in any sticks, these I think might be a little sweet to add cheese.

    Stayhot, I think you may be right about the cheese.  I ordered the mix from Owens and it's just for 12.5 lbs, which is half of what I usually do.  I'm going to give it a try.

    How do you like the seasoning? I'm thinking about grabbing a few different ones.

    Great looking sticks!

    It's good! It's sweet but I add a little black & white pepper for a little heat. I usually make a half batch which is 6 1/4 #'s. I used to vac package some and freeze but I don't even need to freeze them anymore because they don't last that long.........

    Those look GREAT!

    I'm interested in making some myself.  Just out of curiosity so I don't make any mistakes, what temps and how long did you smoke them for?

    Local butcher shop has what they call Cheesy Sweet and Hot sticks and they are excellent...I made a batch of Honey BBQ sticks a while back and they turned out good...but next time I'm going to try adding cheese and some dried jalapeno to try and replicate what our butcher shop does...just food for thought.  Great looking sticks!

    I just do a variation with the instructions that come with the mix. Pretty much personal preference.
  14. They look great, well done.

    Your sticks look great Stayhot.  I can see that I am going to have to get some equipment for this project.  Been thinking about sausage and such for a couple years just been delaying pulling the trigger.

    If you do a search here, you'll find lots of help on making sticks.  Personally, I start them off low with a smoker temp around 100 for an hour and then bump it up to 150 for an hour, 160 for an hour...  Don't go any higher than 180.  I'm looking for an IT of 165, which is a little higher than what others like to do.  Takes around 5 hours this way.
