Since I had to make elk jerky for the grandkids, I figured why not have a go at some pepperoni sticks for them.
No pics of the grinding and mixing but here's the rest. I used the Hi Country Pepperoni Snack Stick seasoning and mixed in the ECA just prior to stuffing 21mm casings (because the smaller stuffing tube is on back ordered until mid April). This is only 3 lbs smoked today and I have 3 lbs to smoke tomorrow. This is only the second time I've made them and the first 2 lb batch didn't last long at all with hubby!
All mixed up
In the stuffer
Fresh off the smoker
Started smoking them at 120-125* with no smoke for 2 hrs, bumped to 140-145* and added hickory and cherry for 3 hrs, then bumped to 160-165* for 3 hrs to IT of 155*.
I'm so proud of myself and I owe it all to the great people here at SMF and everything I have learned from them!!!! Thank you all so much!!
Thanks for looking!
