Ya, I thought about changing it also which is the correct way you should do it., but I didn't and I am not dead yet LOL I think the extra mixing takes care of that.
I have done this recipe many many times and no one has ever been sick or anything this is mixed for 4 days I mix on the 4th day also.
5 lbs. ground beef
5 tsp. tender quick this should be 7.5tsp
5 tsp. mustard seeds
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/2 tsp. anise seed
5 tsp. coarse pepper
2 tsp. smoked salt
4 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. fennel seed
1 tsp. paprika
Mix all ingredients well; refrigerate overnight. Mix each day for 2 more days and refrigerate.
On fourth day, shape as pepperoni sticks, lay on cookie sheets and bake at 140 degrees for 6 hours or more depending on thickness of sticks. I smoke or bake 170 to a IT of 152*
I think I will do 7 next time just to be on the safe and sane side LOL I made the correction for the above recipe if anyone is wanting to use this. I will give this one a go this weekend since they just shut the forests down due to Forest fires, does not look like we are going to have a good Archery season this yr. will have wait for Muzzleloader season.
Try the above one it is really good also. just a different flavor.
A full smoker is a happy smoker
I changed mine to the way I did the 2 day mix,and noted it was modified. Just picked up some London Broil will be thinking of the other recipe.where do you get your casings?
