I did a batch of jalapeno snack sticks. Used about 50/50 pork and beef. This is my second stick run, so still learning. Smoked with a couple fills of hickory for about 4.5 hours. Turned out great, only regret was that I didn't get some high temp cheese to put into these things!!!! 5 lbs of 50/50 pork and beef, seasoned and cured with LEM hot stick package. 8 peppers miced into 5 lbs of meat. My wife helped me stuff- she fed the meat in, while I controlled the casings, which helped a lot! Hung in the smoker. I need to get some hooks or something, string works but not quick. Finished product, and tasted great! Thanks for looking!
