Fried Onion Rings, Walton's Steak Cookoff & Car Show
Weekly Blog Post - Fried Onion Rings, Walton's Steak Cookoff & Car Show
Find out what's going on at Walton's and Meatgistics this week. We will have a loose schedule for soon to be released videos, what we are working on long-term and maybe a few quick tips and tricks that are on our mind!
What Videos are being released soon?
We just released Dill Pickle Flavored Almonds! We took this recipe from @Joe-Hell and made up a batch and they turned out awesome! I know I have said it many times, and it certainly seems like people are listening, but this seasoning is awesome and versatile! We might have to have some of it put in a shaker so it will be more easily available for people.
What Projects are we looking ahead at?
Talking about the Dill Pickle Seasoning Joe sent us some awesome looking sweet onions and what better to do with them than make some onion rings!? We recently started using the Bloody Mary Wing Shake with some regular flour and made an awesome batter for fried food, well we are going to see what other ones make a great batter, so far we are planning on trying Potato Seasoning and Garnish, Smokehouse BBQ Wing Shake, Gigawatt Hot Jerky and the Dill Pickle Jerky Seasoning. We will then let the employees here taste them and vote on which is best! I am sure we will find a few other cool things to do with the onions though!
What’s on our Mind?
A lot of our focus and effort right now is on the Walton’s Steak Cookoff & Car Show. If anyone is going to be in the area on August 10th come see us! $10 ticket gets you a complimentary beer, all sorts of samples from us and from JPs Custom Smoke, access to the car show and steak cookoff and all proceeds will be going to the Air Capital Flyers Special Olympics which is a great cause! Plus the winner of the SCA Cookoff will walk away with $2,000, 2nd will win $1,000, even the 10th place finisher is going to walk away with something!

@Parksider pulled the trigger on a PK 100 smoker and showed it off in More Equipment Hoarding Please Help but I don’t think we will help, I think we are a community of enablers and we are going to continue to push him to buy more awesome stuff!

They aren’t 100% set up yet but we are going to be carrying the PK Original and the PK 360 grills! These are durable little grill smoker combos that do a great job holding heat and have all sorts of attachments available to them, maybe someday I will get to take on out of stock and play with it!
@Joe-Hell Did you get your Power User invite from Walton’s yet to the steak cook off and car show? I heard they are flying us in as celebrity co-hosts to demo some products and teach @Jonathon and @Austin how to cook steaks… I’m waiting by my mailbox for mine…
@Parksider I’m down! Maybe my invite was lost in the mail?
Looking for a little help. Just made my firs batch of snack sticks and the texture was chalky. I made a 10 lb batch using 6 lbs of untrimmed tri tip beef and 4 pounds of pork shoulder. I ran it through the 3/8 grinder first and then added all my seasoning and cheese. I then mixed all ingredients including 45 grams of carrot fiber and then ran through the 1/8 grinding plate. I then hand mixed for 8 minutes and added my water and 45 grams of citric acid and mixed for an additional 12 minutes. I noticed that as soon as i mixed the citric acid in, the texture changed from sticky to chalky. I then stuffed into a 19mm collagen casings and hun in the smoker for 1 hr at 125, 1hr at 140, 2 hours at 155, then turned it up to 175, added smoke and cooked until internal temperature of 160. I then removed and placed in an ice bath for 10 minutes. Let them come to room temperature for 1 hour. The flavor was good but the texture was chalky. I know that I messed up and should have only mixed the citric acid in the ladd minute but was that my only mistake. Did i use tooo much citric acid or carrot fiber?
Thanks @Joe-Hell ! Good to be back. I hope to be making alot more stuff this year and keep connected with y’all!
@deplorablenc1 Welcome back man! It looks like you’ve been busy. Glad to hear from you!
