I would like t make a BBB Roll, and can't seem to find the technical name for "Meat Glue"
Also where do I buy it?
Is it harmful?
I remember part of a discussion about this in class. The teacher said that there were natural enzymes in meat that would “Glue” it back together…..Like hams….when we removed the bone……But we did discuss that there were plant based products that were available too… They are used in food production every day……. I will look back in my notes to see if I can find out what they are for you……If no one else knows…
Hi Todd, I was thinking about your question about meat glue and it occured to me that Len Poli used GELATIN to glue two halves of a turkey breast together to make a turkey roll for smoking. He used a tablespoon of gelatin on each half and then put them together and netted it before smoking. I would think that KNOX gelatin is the product he used. I also think that this would work for BBB just as well and it is absolutely safe. If you desire, you might also check out SAUSAGEMAKER.COM for products. I hope this helps and "HAPPY NEW YEAR".
Here you go.....
I make a rolled BBB that stays together very well without any glue.
I dry cure, not letting the meat sit in the liquid that drains off during curing.
The meat becomes very tacky...don't rinse!!!!
Roll very tight and tie well with butcher twine.
That looks interesting. Do you have a step by step for it. I'd like to try this
Very Interesting stuff
That bacon roll looks awesome!
We need a Step-By-Step on this one!!!
How much ActiveRM do you actually use?
I just can't find any instructions.
I've read a few posts, that they "Dust the meat with Activa"
Could I mix Gelatin with Activa to make it go farther?
I have been wanting to try some too Todd. I dont think its harmful. they use it in the reastuarant industry....
I remember too
heres some video
Here ya go Todd, Activa RM is typically used at 0.75-1.0% of formula weight.
And here's a link too the directions,
It has a short shelf life once opened, they say a month, but mine is still good after about a year, or at least it was a couple months ago last time I used it.
