So I seen Reinhards post the last week on Willies hot links and thought them would be good as a snack stick so here it goes,, I doubled his recipe and made 10lbs of 80/20beef from the freezer.... These will be going to Hunting camp next week.

5 pounds pork butt

12 oz of good beer

2 T black pepper

2 T crushed red pepper

2 T cayenne

2 T papricka

3 T kosher salt

2 T mustard seeds

1/4 cup diced garlic

1 tsp cure #1

1 cup dry'd powdered milk

here are the players 


Powdered milk and Mustard seeds laid out on the beef 


Beer before cure was added 


 Beer after Cure # 1 was added look at that foam!!! 


The rest of the players getting all funky 


all mixed in and let set for a few minutes before adding to the meat 


All mixed in 


Next 10lb batch - I love this flavor 


added beer to this one also, I usually do water but thought what the heck,, I added 10oz drank the other 2 LOL then had to go find more cause they tasted SO GOOD 
cheers.gif



All mixed up, this sat in the fridge while we were stuffing the first batch and boy was it mixed good when we mixed it into the meat.


Stuffing into 21MM Mahogany casings 


Did not want to start another strand so Found a piece of 19mm but it was brittle and blew out, then I made a caseless log out of the bottom of the LEM Stuffer 


The above pic you can see I only had two blow outs on the Mahogany casing 


In the smoker at 130 for 2hrs then I will bump 10* each hour till Smoker temp gets to 170 and IT gets to 152*  That Probe I am using just to double check smoker temp 

FULL SMOKER TODAY ON LABOR DAY 

Thanks for Looking

WHB I have done the Jap sticks many times, this one has a hint of some Mex/taco seasoning in it and man is it ever good 

Yep going to mow the yard  and kick back and watch Mariners today and have a cold one(s) as I wait for the sticks to get done.

Was it a successful hunt? Will we be seeing Elk sticks soon?
Nope,,,, Had one bugling right behind camper from 7:30 at night till 3 in the morning, he would bugle every 15 - 30mins or so, So being the tired hunter that morning, I went right out at dawn and do you think he would talk?? Dang them man,,,,

Dinner time

Plated up 


Dinner is done - kicked back enjoying the night air.

Those snack sticks look great.  Trying these next time, with maybe a little less kick.  I don't want them so hot you can't eat them, but want some kick.  Thanks
 
Btw, where do you buy your casings at?  What kind are they?  

I've just bought the LEM collagen casings, but they don't have the strings at the ends.
