@DeerSlayer i guess i never replied to this thread even though i was mentioned! Sorry about that!
Glad things are turning out great! Just an FYI you could probably just stuff right away into casings, it will make it much eaiser for you then after 6 hours then resting again! Also im a huge supporter of sodium erthorbate as an accelerator. It will make your snack sticks look better and last longer!
Just wanted to give an update … I switched up to a meat mix of 50% deer 50% pork butt . Eliminated the liquid smoke
now grinding twice , mixing spices and sure cure.
refrigerate for approx. 6 hrs
then stuff in casings and refrigerate overnight
in the morning smoke according to waltons schedule
last 2 batches have come out awesome
@PapaSop …not to say the A-MAZE-N isn’t amazing! I’m planning on buying one for one of my other setups at the very least
