Kit was $30 at local cabelas , only purchased because This is my first true stuffed sticks and wanted to make it easier. Going to be making the above this weekend , kit comes with 2 very large bags of seasoning, 2 large bags of cure ( the 2 table spoons/ pound stuff). And 4 logs of casings. Kit says it will do 20#. Going to start with 5 # , reason for that is my stuffer holds 5# an each log of casings should do 5#. I am going to be using backwoods cure( 1/4 teaspoon per pound) instead of the stuff that comes with it. What ratio beef/pork would you recommend for these sticks? going to be buying the meat pre ground.
