Jonathon I bought your 7lb stuffer that I love dearly but have the same problem 19mm casings won’t slip on the tube without unraveling them first.
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.
