Beef Snack Sticks

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
It's been a while, but Mom camp me into town and wanted some Snack Sticks. I had a Hi-Mountain Cracked Pepper and Garlic kit we had not tried yet.
We mixed up the spices and cure in the kit with 5lbs 80/20 along with some Kraft Krumbles and Jalapeños

I forgot to get pictures yesterday, pre-stuffing, but snapped some pre smoke today.
Here they are after sitting in the fridge overnight.


and hung on my little sausage rack in the Masterforge 30 electric.

Just put it in the smoker and currently at 100deg for the first 2 hours to dry off and then bump it 10 ever hour with hickory smoke until it hits an It of 154deg.

More pics to come...sausage.gif

Hmmm... Well, I watched internal and smoker temps like a hawk, so I don't think I had a fat out, I think we had too much cheese. Maybe not stuffed tight enough.

Tastes fine... We'll probably try again this weekend.

Butts were on sale today, so one's going in the smoker early in the morning and some got ground for breakfast sausage.

Here's some horror Q-view.



And breakfast sausage...

Ok... Round 2 of these. This time, stuffed tighter (last time they were not full enough IMO) and 1/2 the cheese.

And pictures of the before stick creation... I'll admit, I'm a bit gun shy to post before smoking.

The kit


Jalapeños

Up to an IT of 152 and now they are on my high tech system to hang and bloom.

I have to get up in 4 hours, so I'll leave them to bloom until then.
