Doing some test runs on hot dogs changing some recipes around.... I wanted to change from table salt to kosher salt. Found this http://www.smoking-meat.com/kosher-salt.html and doubled the salt.......... well I just stuffed 2-2lb batches and did a fry test and both were waaaayyyyy to salty.... Looks like its not even worth smoking.... More food for the neighborhood dogs.... I am confused. I went to mortons web site and found this
I also was doing a snack stick test and it was a bust..... Dont use pre frozen ground beef... the mixture cured overnight with the seasoning. when I mixed it with water to soften it for the stuffer it would not mix together. It was an awefull mess of beef clumps and water... I just gave up and threw it out.......
I do have some good news, I am working on a super secret hot dog recipe... I am not copying off another recipe just doing my own thing and the fry test was very good.....
Some pics of the failures
The NOT dog set up......
Heres the super secret.. they will get smoked
The dog food is on the right
You say "WHERES THE BEEF"..
thanks for lookin..
