I was at the local grocery store this week and while waiting to check out I saw something in the Impulse section that sparked my attention. It was something called a Chub and it was in with the beef sticks and jerky. As curious as I am I bought one to try. Basically it looks like a beef stick mixture stuffed into a pork casing (kind used in Brats). The thing was they were twisted off at a length of about 2 inches and then smoked. Taste was ok just cause it was a mass produced items but it got me wanting to make them. So I have a couple pounds of deer and some pork sitting around so I was going to give them a try this weekend. Was going to do a sample batch of 3 lbs which I am guessing will yield me somewhere around 36 to 40 of these Chubs. I figure while I am experimenting I might as well go all out with a Cajun stick recipe I found on the internet. Anyway thought it was a neat way to make something different. I'll let you know on Monday how they go.
