Got a half batch of pepperoni mixed up & stuffed, little over six pounds !
And a half batch of seven pepper blend mixed up & stuffed, same amount as the pepperoni !
They went in the fridge til this morning, then put in the MES at 130* for a hour & a half ! After that, bumped the temp up to 150* & added the AMNPS with some Pitmaster blend dust !
After another hour & each hour after that, bumped the temp up bout 10* til smoker was running between 170-175* ! Took the sticks to 158* IT, overshot my target temp a bit.... was going for 155* ! I'm sure they'll be fine, but I kick myself when I do stuff like that !
Anyway I just turned the smoker off, opened the door for a bit to let the heat out... I will just let them stay in there tonite & pull them out tomorrow ! I'll post up a money shot then !
