This is not a fermented recipe. It is just baked and smoked.

I was just reading the thread about the northern tool vertical stuffer.

It reminds me i must make a comment about the texture of my peperoni.

I used my cabellas 1 hp grinder to stuff the casings. I noticed the meat looked very white and fatty compared to the original mix which was very red and meaty in textire
The color came back when i baked the peperoni but it has a grainy texture rather than a meay texture that we all are used to tasting.

I call them peperoni snack sticks.

I will purchase the 15 pound vertical stuffer before i do any more sausages of any kind.

Common issue with using grinders as stuffers Scotty. Stuffer is hands down the way to go.

Hey Scotty, Im a newbie at pepperoni and I just used my meat grinder for stuffing pepperoni yesterday, and I got the same results as you. The meat was so pale looking, I would have sworn it was sick.

A short while in my smoker and the great look of pepperoni was right back. The flavor that I had hoped to achieve is there, but like you mentioned, the texture of the meat isn't what I want.


I have 10 # of pepperonie meat all mixed and its been in the fridge for 2 days, I will go ahead and stuff it now with the meat grinder / stuffer, but I don't plan to do anymore stuffing with the grinder.


I have a Dakota watere stuffer ordered and will wait for it to get here before I do anymore stuffing.


BTW Yours look awesome. I'm sure they taste as good as they look.
