Snack Sticks- Water-

  • I’m going to be trying a few 5lb batches of snack sticks this weekend (Willies w/ cheese and Tex Mex w/ cheese). I didn’t buy a binder. Do I still use 2 qts of water per 25lbs (approx 12.8 oz per 5lb) with my seasoning/cure/cheese?- Thanks

    @nickh2185 I wouldnt use 2 qts of water to 25 lb unless you were using a binder and/or stuffing into very small casings. The 2 qts is to help making the stuffing easier in small batches and while it cooks off during the cooking process there is no need to add that time to your smoke cycle if you don’t need to. For a 5 lb batch I would use 1 qt per 25 lb and that would be just about 7.5 oz.

  • Thanks for the quick response! I appreciate the help.

  • Unless your grinding frozen chunks or large pieces of meat their really is no reason to do that. Its not going to really hurt anything if you do though. But for a small grind with a smaller grinder just cut the pieces smaller so they feed through better.

  • Try sticking them in your fridge for a few days to dry out a bit more. Uncovered.
