    Roughly 2hrs at around 200-220. usually stick a temp probe in one about 1hr into it to keep an eye on it. Been ussing my reverse flow but going to have to build a smoke house i think!!!!

    Ok, so this may be a dumb question, but I'd like to try to make my own sticks and have no clue how to do it.

    How do you stuff the casings? Where do you buy casings, cures, seasoning, etc.? I've seen a few websites where they sell a complete kit with everything a person would need. Are those good?

    Help a rookie out! Thanks so much!

    Did you grind once

    Did you use the #8 plates are they considered fine or coarse?


    A friend of mine did a batch and they were really bumpy I thought his meat might have not been lean or he used coarse plates but the #8 looks about what he used.
    I hope he didn't use the 14mm plates
