Venison Snack Sticks

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Cleaning out some old venison to make room for the new stuff..
I decided to make the Snack sticks..
Leggs Brand Snack stick seasons and some cure added to about 6lbs venison and 5lbs pork shoulder meat.. Ground up and mixed well with the seasoning. I fried up a couple patties to taste to make sure I had enough seasoning, tasted goodPDT_Armataz_01_34.gif

Can anyone guess what I'm doing tomorrow icon_biggrin.gif

I could guess that you won't be mowing lawn or raking leaves! Great snak sticks, I just did some with the Hi Mountain cure, they are great. What I really like is your grinder. PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif Good lord, thats a dandy. icon_smile.gif What is it and where do you get one? It must be pretty expensive?

Guide Series 250w from Gander Mnt. I don't think they sell this on anymore.
I told the wife last year which one to get (the cheapest one) and when she went it was marked 250 and at check out it rang up 125.
I bought one on ebay for my friend for $40. They have a leak in the gear box so oil comes out and thats why it was cheap on ebay. And I'm sure thats why they stopped selling this one. I will be a easy fix when I feel enough oil came out to open it up for repairs.
The cork gaskets are crap on these things..
As fast as I toss chunks of meat in, it spits it out... Its a great grinder.
I have a couple Hi Mnt kits in the house also.. I like the summer salami..

your not kidding about the sheep casings.. I tried them once and I will never use them again, what a PIA they are.
I use the fiber casings they sell at GM for the smaller size. Thats what I used this time..

Just getting around to posting pics of the finished product. It came out real good. But taking the temp of each stick was a PIA.

I have a German Sausage kit from Hi Mountain for my first sausage making event. Then it's gonna be snack sticks.

I'm new to the sausage and snack stick making process but am learning. I noticed that you have the same smoker as I, Silver Smoker. It works great for brisket, ribs and roasts but how well does it work for smoking sausage and snack sticks. If you have any tips I'd be grateful. Thanks
