Made some sticks today.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I had some ground beef left over from some other things I was doing and since it was 5# I pulled out a pack of Lem summer sausage mix and did it up this morning, pics below. I made them in my Dehydrator as I can not get the desired results in my Cookshack with out a lot of messing around.

Had a pack of this, usually have seasoning mixes in the cupboard.

Started with 5# of ground beef 84/16 is how it was labeled used the above kit per directions, I keep different size peanut butter jars cleaned to mix the seasoning/cure with the water in I used 4oz of water to mix and the last ounce to rinse the jar out, (was to lazy to look for a can of beef broth to use in place of the water) Hand mixed until tacky and got out the Cabelas Jerky Canon, only used the one tube since I only had 5# to work with, put on the snackstick end and piped them onto the racks of the Cabelas Dehydrator ( I love that thing, should have bought the bigger 160 liter model, Take note hear folks, don't make the same mistakes I did) Set the temp at max 160 and the time at 8 hours, checked them at 3 hours and temp was in the 130's from what I could tell, checked again at the 4,5 hour mark and they were in the 140's hard to stick the centers.

 

Left them set a few minutes while I started my dinner and then took them out and wiped the rendered grease from them and put in the fridge to cool completely, until I can package them tomorrow after work.

 

I did not use a casing, I normally do, but they give me issues as in they separate and do nit keep that snap we all like, they turn rubbery.
