    Well, I have not posted here for awhile and my buddy and his family shot a couple of deer this last yr and called me Friday Morning said he had a bunch of venison and ground pork thawed and wanted to make some Sticks and Summer sausage, OK How much he said 50lbs!!!!!! OKAY Long night Fri night stuffing - I had 5lbs of beef in the fridge I was mixing for the last 3 days and was going to do some case less Meat loaves,

    So here we go.

    12 1/2lbs of Jalapeno Summer Sausage in Fiborous casings

    12 1/2lbs of Jalapeno Pepper snack sticks

    12 1/2lbs of Chipole Wildfire snack sticks

    12 1/2lbs of Habanero Snack sticks with Lava Jack Hi temp cheese

    5 lbs of Pepperoni case less Meat loaves

    All the snack sticks were 21MM Collagen casings just bought a caddie of them






    Had to take a break and shoot some darts and drink a few cold ones - just a few thou


    Those are all 4ft long total first rack is Jalapeno, next is Chipole, next is Habanaro, and last is Jap summer sausage


    Next morning hanging at room temp for 2hrs before hitting the smoker at 130*




    case less Pepperoni logs - these went in the MES at 130*

    Took us just over 4hrs to mix and stuff - not too bad

    When I put the sticks and s/s in fridge smoker there was so much meat (not cold) took 2 1/2hrs to recover to get back up to temp

    More pics to come

    A full Smoker is a happy smoker and Mine is Very Happy

    Thanks everyone, they turned out great have not got a chance to taste them all but the Habanero with the Lava jack was spectacular and so were the Pepperoni logs 

    I started smoker out at 130* and let sticks hang at room temp for 2hrs before putting them in and the smoker still took about 3hrs to recover to 130, and the steam was pouring out, I put smoke on after there was no more steam and these turned out great. 

    My smoker was a very full smoker, had to put the logs in the mes 30.  Each stick was 4ft total length. 2ft on each side of the dowel. 

    Thanks for looking

    I think it was a little much for my fridge smoker, bottom of a couple of the sticks dried out, I guess too close to burner, I have done this before but not this amount, same length, never had a problem, need to try to put a small CPU Fan in there to circulate the heat a little better, They all had great taste, will do these flavors again in the future. 

    A full smoker is a happy smoker
