Coffee meat sticks?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I got a 3 chili java seasoning from a friend. Yea, sounds to complated for me. I like simple but I was out of sticks anyway.

Picked up some 85/15 beef and mixed. In the fridge for 36 hours.

Yup, looks the same after 36 hours.

Soaked some sheep casings for 3 days.

My stuffing skills still need work.

Into the smoker at 100 to dry. Took 1.5 hours then added pecan smoke in the expandable tube.

Very interesting!

 

I love coffee so the taste may be to my liking!

 

It is a little weird though.

Thanks guys. The first taste test the next morning was ok.

After drying in the fridge for two days, big flavor change. Just a hint of coffee flavor, I am not a coffee drinker. Has nice heat from the peppers, mild and doesn't last.

Got some nice wrinkles.

Cross section cut, looks good to me.

Very pleased with these sticks. The 85/15 works better than 80/20 for my taste.

Now to get the recipe from him??????

Thanks Justin. Don't know why people are scared of sheep casings. I have a custom made tube with a cheap stuffer with plastic gears, stuffed many pounds in to sheep with it.

Strange you should mention coffee in snack sticks.  After I made my last batch of Smoking Gun jerky rounds, I was wondering about putting some instant expresso in a batch to try.  I love coffee as do my co-workers who also love it when I bring in jerky.

 

So, thanks for reminding me of this - and your sticks are looking pretty good!

Thanks. All I know is he said it was some high end imported coffee.

Post up what you come up with.
