Made snack stix today like I always do, same mix and everything. Used small sheep casing, everything stuffed ok. Started out at 120 for an hour then added smoke with the AMPS raising the temp10 or so every hour. When the first probe got to 152 I pulled them out and hit the ice bath. It was then I noticed some of the casings werestill white, so I pu them back in again adding more smoke and cranked the temp up to 170. I am at 145 now and watching close so I dont go over the threshold...
What the heck is going on? To much moisture? I did add a little extra water in the mix to ease stuffing the small casing this time. Top half of the casing looks fine.. its the bottom part thats the problem.
opinions please..Thanks in advance.
