I have an ambition to make some caseless turkey snack sticks based on Bearcarver's recipe here: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/95395/unstuffed-smoked-beef-pepperoni-sticks-with-qview
The ground turkey I'm eyeing at Costco is just 7 percent fat. I don't want to add beef or pork into the mix, but I'm afraid going with the lean turkey will result in crumbly sticks. Is there anything I could add as a substitute for the pork fat or something that would work as a binder? I'm new to the smoking world and have an MES 30 with an AMNPS, if that makes any difference. Advice is much appreciated!
