Sticks are a lot of work to mix.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
When mixing a ten pound batch, by hand, of Nepas snack sticks the meat gets so stiff and sticky after a minute or two that it's really hard on my hands and wrists. There's a cup of water in the recipe. I added two more cups as I was mixing to make it a little easier to mix. Does that dilute the mixture or have any negative affects on the finished product? I know, I know! Buy a mixer! That's my next purchase.

No I do it all the time. A little extra water won't hurt at all. 

 

It will make it easier to stuff.

 

Especially if you are using the small stuffing tube.

Thanks Al. Gonna make these sticks skinless, so I basically use the stuffer to extrude the meat. So no problem with getting them to go thru the stuffing tube. Do some of you guys do it that way too?

I use a jerky gun for caseless. Since the stuffer doesn't move it's difficult to do caseless.

My way of using the stuffer for skinless snack sticks.
