So decided to give them a try... Used the basic recipe on this post... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/154695/finally-got-a-snack-stick-recipe-that-i-love Purchased ground chuck, unfortunately not on sale, and got everything mixed up... Things I changed... Used 2/3 or so of anice and fennel seeds and didn't use any liquid smoke... Here's a pic of it mixed (small portion as most was in stuffer already)... And here's a pic once stuffed... Into the fridge overnight and will be smoked slowly in the morning... Likely an hour without smoke, then 4 at 130, and bump it up 10 per hour till it of 152... Any recommendations on smoke? Any changes I should make to smoke plan? More pictures to come tomorrow.
