I posted a couple weeks ago about finding a great eating venison snack stick recipe. I used Big Casino's recipe and riffed off it a bit. The first batch had good taste but the texture was a bit pasty for me. This time I added salt to 2 3/4tsp for 2lbs lean venison, 1/2 lb of pork butt, and 1/2 lb of beef fat. I upped the heat to a full tsp of chipotle powder. The taste is spot on now for me. I also added a half cup of NFDM and .24oz of ECA. They're still chillin overnight in the fridge, but my initial taste test shows more moisture. Still a bit pasty, but we'll see what a couple days in the fridge does. So far, better than the first batch! May need to order up some Amesphos.
