Started with this.


And I had some 80/20 GB hanging around in freezer doin nothin..
Sooo..

So I whipped up a quick batch with the meat I had using Cure #1 and water.
In the frig for an overnight rest.


Stuffed this the next morning into 21mm Collagen casings.
Then went into the Bradley OBS using the Auber PID. I used hickory for this smoke.
It took a little less than 6 hours to reach an IT of 152. Hung them for a bit to bloom and then into the frig overnight.
Next day.


Closer look.


Some going into the freezer and a container for snacking during the week.


Normally I would have used a little more fat in a mix like this, but I was anxious to try this out. I will definitely add pork to it next time. The mix has a great flavor and it takes a moment for the heat to make it's presence. Very balanced and not salty at all.
I'll be making more of these once the weather breaks.

Thanks for looking.

Looks realy great!!.  Also looks like you did less than the 25 pounds for the seasoning bag.  What portions did you use for the amount made?  Thanks. Reinhard

If my calculations are correct, it came out to 7/8oz per 1 lb of meat. I don't have my notes in front of me.

I made 5 lbs total. So I added the mix as per the measurements above, 1 tsp Cure 1 and @1/3 cup cold water.

The mix I used also has detailed instructions inside of the package as well.

Hope that helps!

Nice work on the sticks Sam, they look perfect!
The Chipotle Wildfire seasoning in my opinion is a fairly mellow heat, kind of a please all flavor that most people should enjoy. Our Seven Pepper seasoning for sticks has more of a heat that sneaks up from behind with a little more heat... more of a good beer drinking meat stick!
