Just did a batch of sticks with my "go to" seasoning. My post isn't as nice as the one Winter Rider just posted, sorry ! I weighed out seasoning for 5 pounds of pork butt and used PS speed cure :

Mixed well and let it sit in the fridge for a day to meld the flavors:

I stuffed in 23 mm collagen casings and put in the smoker for about 7 and a half hours using cherry and hickory chips .The usual 110 *, no smoke dampers open and then bump temps to 170 routine. Not checking temp but looking at shrinkage to know when to remove from the smoker. Hung in the cool cellar for a few hours to cool before heading to the fridge.

I then left in a paper bag in the fridge for a day to dry(thanks for the tip Rick) and cut and packaged. Nice seasoning mix with moderate heat but not too hot. Thanks for looking ! CM

Great looking sticks. I like PS seasonings for several of their products.
Question for you.....after putting in the fridge after mixing for a day, is it hard to stuff in the small casings? Thanks

Looks good to me! Are the sticks dry enough to be considered shelf stable? Or do you need to refrigerate them?

WIS, I have to add more water and mix right before stuffing or my stuffer would explode, takes longer in the smoker to dry but it is worth it !

IDS, I leave in the fridge and don't believe they would be shelf stable? I just like a drier stick to gnaw.

Those look great to me. Winter Riders did look very good. Cannot taste the look though, lol. These look tasty and looks like good flavor on em. Kinda like shooting a buck vs doe, ya can't eat the horns! Never tried the paper bag trick, unless it involved beer or women! 🤦‍♂️ Love the little vac packs to just throw on the dash fishing or backpack hunting. Looks like a solid cook to me sir!

That's a different paper bag, usually only used late at night.
