    I have tried making pepperoni sticks in the past and every time the darn things are to salty. I have tried Hi-mountain and a couple recipies off the net.

    I am looking for some help with some homemade recipies for sticks and summer sausage

    Thanks in advance

    How much are you set up to make per batch?

    If you can tell me I can make a batch mix formula for you that should solve the problem.

    1 to 5 lbs

    I hate feeding the dogs the stuff when it goes wrong. First batch was 5 lbs then I cut it down to 2 lb batches. I think some it was that I was starting out with to high a temp.

    Thanks for the help

    So you are using a bagged mix until now?

    Its the salt/cure thing...just salty
