Recovering denatured meat …

  • after reading here several times about denatured meat … and how it has ruined a batch of meat the question comes to mind
    if when mixing you realize that its just not getting good protein extraction ( not getting at sticky product) what steps can you take to recover the batch ?
    probably different answers depending on fat content but lets see

  • @DeerSlayer add more water and keep on mixing!

    I’m kind of glad I don’t know any better. LOL!
    Since I do more “Shotgun” cooking, I tend to adjust on the fly.
    If I get too much water on the front end, it always dries out on the tail end. Or more accurately, it stays in the smoker until I’m happy with it.
    (IE: Wrinkled enough, smoked enough, tastes OK.)
    I’m a simple man, with simple ways.
    But like Lamurscrappy sez, I just dribble in a bit more water, and keep mixing until I get what I think is gooey and sticky enough to push into casings (Collagen).
    I course grind. Season and Mix. Grind again finer. Then that second grind is discharged into my Stuffer tank to be mashed into sticks. I seem to wind up with a Hot Dog appearing stuffing mixture, with some appearance of peppercorn and mustard seed.
    I prefer as simple an approach as I can. So far it must be working out, I’m still here. LOL! (Much to some’s dismay…)
    (And if my ways knock me off, I promise not to tell anybody.)
    Water tends to dry up, with enough heat and patience.

  • @Ernie I don’t have a particular recipe but I did make brats with ‘The Sausage King of Walla Walla’ using Walla Walla Sweet Onion juice. He was a notorious sausage maker in my area and only made one type…Sweet Onion. For small batches he would grate or mince the onions fine and squeeze out the excess water and use that for flavoring. Larger batches he would source the liquid from processors.

    I would suggest using one of the Excalibur brat seasonings as a base and play around with the juice.
