I want to make - eat - snack sticks. A little background... I will be the only one to eat the sticks. Rest of family will object because they're not store bought and smoked. Their loss!
I'm trying to figure out how to utilize what I have for equipment. I don't want to invest in big equipment such as grinders and stuffers. I want to stay with my Kitchenaid grinder and stuffer until I see how I like homemade sausage and then consider if I need better equipment.
In reading here I don't see what I need to make (stuff) the sticks. How to obtain the right filler tube to fit my machine and also what size hog casings to buy. It sounds like I can also buy pre-blended seasoning to start with. I have Cure1.
Does anyone know where I should turn to get the right parts for my KA?
Suggestions on seasoning?
I have read how to deal with drying, slow smoking, ice baths and handling the stuffed sticks. But haven't seen how to use the KA and the stuffing tube and casings needed. I'll bet I'll get the help to get started.
Many thanks in advance..
