Hi all. Haven't been on in a while but want to report on my latest snack stick batch.
I got a new smoker last week. An Mes 30 1st gen and seasoned it up right away.
I work two jobs now and only have day off on Monday and Thursdays. Weird huh?
I used recipes from hounds51 and Couger78 threads titles 50lbs of Lebanon bologna and 25 bs of Lebanon bologna.
I cut it down to 12.5 lbs and used venison(9lbs) and 80/20 ground beef(3.5lbs)
Only difference was my liquid smoke was a combo of hickory flavored and mesquite flavored.
12.5 lbs was almost too much for just laying on the racks but I got it done.
Next time I'm only doing 6 lbs. and I'm going to hang it on dowels.
I used a Lem jerky gun and it worked ok but what a chore to load after every 3 sticks.
Got it all vacuum sealed today. Thanks for looking. AJ
