I usually mix my spices in with the water & add about 1/4 of it to the meat at a time & keep mixing to ensure an even distribution. Once all the spices are mixed in keep going. You want the meat to be very, very sticky. Once you reach that point & think it's good, keep mixing for a while longer then it's ready to stuff
