Made up a batch of 12 1/2 pounds, half with pepper jack cheese half with out.  Sorry not a ton of picks, was so rushed for time. put these on yesterday at like 3 PM and they finally all finished at 6 AM today.

Good flavor, kids and neighbor thumbs up approval.   Will vacuum seal later today.
Those look awesome!! 
Looks great nice job,,,, have have to restock my supply of sticks also

A full smoker is a happy smoker

I started out at 110 for 2 or 3 hours to dry then bump to 140 and bump up 10 degrees every hour till it was at 180.  I have read others completing their smoke in like 8 hours or so. Every time I smoke sticks or summer sausage it takes like 16 hours or so. I have checked my smoker temps and it is accurate .   So guessing volume of meat?

Nice looking sticks, is the Seven pepper flavor a kit or is it a recipe you would like to share, it sounds really good... thanks
Hi,  I am using a kit from Owens Bbq.  Have made 7 pepper mix twice so far and have had many request to make more so far.  I love their meat rub called Tatonka Dust allot too.
This is the other 12.5 pound batch I made for my dad. This one is 7 pepper again.

I did find out my one probe was bad. Switched it out and see my MES40 is off by about 15-20 degrees.  So now I know why my smokes were taking so long. 
Sticks look good. Thats a long time for them to be in the smoker. MES is bad for off temps. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
