Finally got around to doing a batch of slim jims, which I'd been wanting to do all year. Gave me an opportunity to try out my meat mixer and stuffer, both of which worked like a champ. Mixed, stuffed, and linked on Fri.. Smoked on Sat. and cut and bagged yest. I took them out of the smoker at about midnight, and it was pouring so didn't get a shot of that. When I took them out I could of sworn my digital was reading 153, but when I checked in the house the warmest reading I got was 107 so I put them in the oven to finish. Turned out very good. I think my digital probe wasn't inserted far enough into a link, and I was getting internal smoker temp more so than meat. My daughter helped me with every step, otherwise it wasn't happening.
