First Snack Stick Run...Successful with Q-view

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I got my new grinder/ stuffer last week and wanted to test it out.  I had some pork butts in the freezer so I thawed those out and got some chuck roasts.  I did about 50/50 pork to beef and used LEM snack stick seasoning and cure packet for 5 lbs of meat.  I still have the 5 lbs of hot sticks to stuff and smoke, but the original snack sticks turned out great.

Very crudely hung in the smoker.  I will have to get some hooks, but it worked.

As you can see it took a few tries to get the casing thing down, but I got it.

I smoked for 1 hour at 150 degrees to dry them out, then added a handful of cherry chips for an hour at 150 degrees, added another handful of cherry for another hour at 150 degrees, then raised to about 175 for another hour and I hit 165 IT.  Pretty short session, but results were great!

Yes, hooked for sure.  I am going to keep doing a few more test runs, so I can confidently do my own venison and save a lot of $$$$$, and be able to say that I did it myself.
