    So been awhile since I did sticks so here it goes

    10lbs of 82/20beef Long horn we just had butchered

    Mitchlitch seasoning from Spokane Wa. with their Hi temp Ja[p cheese

    starting the mix (this mix had cure 1 in it)



    and into the smoker these were about 24" long so one full one is 4ft smoker is full starting on cheese next

    These are in at 120* for about one hour then I will add the ampts with Hickory and bump up 10* every hr till smoker

    gets to 170 and keep it there till IT gets 152*

    stuffed into smoked collegen casings 19mm WHAT A PITA with the small casings I have a bunch to use up never had one of the 22mm break and most of these broke no matter how slow I went


    Thanks For looking more pics to follow

  2. Looking good! I used the 22mm "HiCountry" brand with my Kitchenaid sausage stuffer attachment...just did a basic beef stick. Next time I'll do the Jalapeno Cheese stick!

    I haven't made any yet, but I'm closing in though [​IMG]  I've been looking for another source to get more casings..... think I'll place an order for sticks also. I have a feeling these will last about as long as the jerky does around here. The jerky fumes from the process can't even completely dissipate and they're all gone.

  11. Yes, basically the auger doesn't have enough to "push/pull" it thru so you're left with the plunger pressing it in. The plunger is too small and creates a vacuum when you push, which allows the meat to push by and load up the back side of the plunger...it's a process for sure. I'm looking at building a water stuffer out of PVC and other readily available parts from Lowe's/Home Depot.

    Here's my sticks: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/136910/cooker-warmer-mods#post_941635

  12. Also, get some exhaust clamps...get rid of u-bolt and nuts...use the cradle to hold your tube smoker.
