made some snack sticks from a butcher packer kit and they were extremely bland, that being said i have used this kit in the past with good results, however, this time i did 2 things differant that may have resulted in my product not being as falvorful as in the past.The last batch was a bit dry so this time i added about 3% non fat dry milk and put them in a hot water bath when the temp was at 130. The texture was perfect, but it tasted more like a cold hot dog than a snack stick. Do you think it was the non fat dry milk or the hot water bath that caused the problem. Thx in advance.
