Not So Slim Jim Jackpot

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Scored a 93/7 3 # ground beef chub for $10 (normally $15) and added 2 pounds of ground pork. Using a blend of two recipes, mostly Nepas one, created my own with the addition of more crushed red pepper and ground chipotles stuffed into 30 MM red collagen casings. The casings looked a bit large starting out but after 25 hours in the smoker they looked just the right size. Started out at 150 in the Smokin' It #3 at noon with cherry wood and let it ride overnight. Checked it at 6 AM and the IT was about 128. Bumped the smoker to 175. They hit 152 IT at 1 PM and I pulled them out. They did not appear overly wrinkled so I chose not to do a water bath, just letting them bloom on the stove top. They smell fantastic and I must have a taste before posting this. WOW.....still a tad warm but a nice heat level, good texture and xlnt flavor with a nice tang from the buttermilk and long smoke. I'm thinking fantastic after a couple days bloom....I see more of these in my immediate future as I doubt they will last long.....Willie

Those look great chef. Do you use the James jerky dryer on your smoker or anything else to help draw the moisture out?

Nope...nothing special. just 150 from noon till 6 AM next morning then a bump to 175 and let them finish. I've used 80/20 GB before and wasn't thrilled with results....this 93/7 was worth it
