@Austin Thanks Austin!
It would have to be manually calculated for every seasoning blend, and it isn’t very feasible for us to keep track and maintain that info on every item. Volumetric just isn’t as accurate as by weight and volume can vary a bit. One could come up with an approximation for many items though. For example, for cure, we say that Sure Cure has 6 teaspoons in 1 ounce.
If you have a specific request on calculating the amount for a specific seasoning blend, let us know and we’ll see what we can come up with.
@Austin Is there a way to use volume measurements rather than weighing the spices?
ie. a Tablespoon of cure equals one ounce?
WaltonsTV: Creativity In Using Seasonings Meat Hacks: Creativity In Using Seasonings Outside Their Intended Purpose
Can I use a seasoning for a use besides what it says on the label? Watch the full video, read the highlights here, and then post your comments or questions below.Using Seasonings Outside Their Intended Purpose - Be Creative
Just because a seasoning is a labeled as a snack stick seasoning, doesn’t mean that you cannot use it for something else like summer sausage or jerky. Be creative and don’t be afraid to use a seasoning for something other than what is was originally developed for. For example, if you really like the Sriracha Flavored Snack Stick Seasoning, but you would prefer making summer sausage or jerky, there is nothing wrong with using the snack stick seasoning in a different product like summer sausage or jerky.
So if you like the sound of a certain seasoning flavor, but it’s not labeled for the meat snack you wanted to make, don’t be afraid to still try it out and use it in any type of meat snack!Shop waltonsinc.com for Excalibur Seasonings

Supreme Pizza Bratwurst Seasoning comes in a package that is meant to season 25 lb of meat, but what if you only want to make 5 lb of bratwursts?Take the weight of the seasoning and divide it by the number of pounds it is meant to season - 1.125 / 25 = 0.045 Take the result from step 1 and multiply it by the number of pounds you want to make - 0.045 x 5 = 0.225 The result from step 2 is your weight of seasoning to use, so simply weigh out 0.225 lb using a scale Or, convert your weight to ounces by multiplying it by 16 (0.225 x 16 = 3.6 oz) and weigh out 3.6 oz using a scale What Kind of Scales are Available?
Simply follow a couple simple calculations and use a scale to weigh out exactly how much seasoning to use.
In our example below, we used the Supreme Pizza Bratwurst Seasoning which contains 1.125 lb of seasoning and is meant to be used with 25 lb of meat, but we’ll divide it out to make only a 5 lb batch of sausage.
