4 Tbl Cayenne
6 Tbl uniodized/canning salt
2 Tbl Dextrose/Karo clear corn syrup
6 Tbl Minced Garlic
2 Tbl Minced Onions

Yep great little meat mixers. Madison ain't no yuppie girl! Just fired up smoker 2:05.
Let the qview begin.
Starting at 120 for 1hr no smoke need to dry casing.

5 hrs in with 3 hrs smoke, got some air pockets. Smells great.

Whooooohooo they r all done. Final qview

Tastes great. Soury twang followed by heat only real problem is crumbly with air pockets/loose casings in spots.

The crumbly texture is probably due to too much vinegar in the mix. It prevents a good bind and thus a crumbly texture.
