Yup a case. RY is like my backup to JD which is my backup to Makers drool.gif

 

 

Added some buckwheat flour to the mix. This should mellow the bourbon and cut down on some shrinkage.

Freaking hayseed market only had 73/27 GB. My norm is 80/20. RY slim jim mix ready to stuff

Used my KC water stuffer, took like 4 mins cuz the tube i used is 1/2" and the length of collagen would not fit so i had to reload the stuffer tube 2x

Hanging no smoke for about an hour. Then i will hit the sticks with hickory smoke for 3 hours at 140.

I like your sticks and those collagen casings are a B****h to work with for me too. Now I will be willing to try yours. I have to made some for the wife about 15lbs at a time.

Tired of the nasty 73/27 GB. Hate the cavitation and excess fat in the meat so i'm sure there will be some i will cut off. Next time go to my normal grind.

 

Ahhhh i hate that grind.

The casings arent the problem for me. Its the 1/2 OD tube that wont go through the entire length of casing so i gotta pull the casing on the tube. Next time i will use the 7/16 or 3/8 tube. Is that a smoke vault i see glowing.

 

When i worked at Cabelas in the camping dept i bought one for $80 after my discount. Used it 3 times and a friend said hey i will give you $200 for it....SURE

Looking good NEPAS !

 

I'm waiting for the final pics too.

 

This week (in Macungie) we have 73/27 for $2.29, and 80/20 for $2.49. I just got 25 pounds of the 80/20 today---hoping to smoke on Saturday.
