So this part always kicks my ass... Making snack sticks and when it comes to seasonings... Trying to figure out how much is needed...

Directions on the bag (Owens) says 2 lbs seasoning .... which is the whole bag... For 25 lbs of meat... So to break it down for 15lbs of meat...

I'm going by ounces as it doesn't need to be that accurate...

2lbs (32oz) divided by 25lbs (400oz) multiplied by 15lbs (240oz) = 19.2 ozs... correct ??


PS... If you have spicey (7 pepper) seasonings on your finger.... DON'T rub your eye with said finger... Don't ask me how I know...BURNNNNN..... and BURNNN some more

try taking out your contacts after getting some Dave's insanity sauce on your hands....ask me how I know
 
The stuff I have from Owen’s has per pound amounts on it .
Per pound is always easier. The first thing I do when I have a new recipe is convert it.

Then you can write 1.28oz/lb on the bag and not have to re-do the calculation next time you dip into that seasoning.
 
Doing 15lbs of Chipotle Wildfire... 15 lbs of 7-pepper ... 10lbs of Philly Cheese Steaks... and 10 pounds of teriyaki...

All through a 3/8" tube... Wanna come help ??

Mixing is the part I hate most...
 
I just took 15 lbs divided by 25 lbs = 60%, 60% of the 2 lbs is 1.2 lbs x 16 for oz = 19.2 oz. Lots of ways to get at it.
 
chipotle wildfire & 7 pepper 4 Tbsp per pound of meat
Teriyaki is 2 Tbsp+1/4tsp per pound of meat and using their sugar cure stuff is 1 3/4tsp per lb

Is the Philly the brat or stick seasoning

2lbs per 25lbs meat.
2/25=.08lbs of spice per lb of meat.
15lbs of meat x .08lbs spice =1.2lbs of spice needed.
The .08 is what you need and can use it to calculate no matter how much meat you have.
 
I do the math a little different for those numbers since they are both multiples of 5.
15 is 60% of 25 (15/25 is same as 3/5 = .6)
Then just multiply 2 x .6 = 1.2lbs.

No pencil and paper needed.

clifish clifish - I've had Dave's Insanity Sauce, some bas a$$ stuff.

I prefer metric. 8% on that mix. Easier to figure out seasoning for uneven meat weights.

15#=6,810 grams.

6810 x .08=544.8 grams of seasoning

25lbs of meat * (percent mix by weight) = 2lbs of seasoning, so
0.08season-to-meat ratio = 2lbs seasoning/25lbs meat

So if you want to know how much seasoning for #15lbs. You have:

1lb of meat * (0.08) = .08lbs of seasoning
15lb of meat * (0.08) = 1.2lbs seasoning = 544.3g of seasoning

Definitely agree with metric, since you can standardize all measurements (I even weigh my water in grams)

Crazy how many ways you can do it. I just do 15/25 = .6 (60%). .6 X 2 = 1.2 lbs X 16 oz = 19.2 oz.
