Zoobilee and Tips for Stuffing Collagen
Weekly Blog Post - Zoobilee and Tips for Stuffing Collagen
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 Tips to Stuff Collagen Casings where we go over how to tell when a casing is properly stuffed and more.
We will be releasing tips for stuffing natural and fibrous casings as well over the next few weeks to get everyone ready for HUNTING SEASON!
Speaking of hunting season if you didn’t get our email check out this raffle to win a 4-man Helicopter Hunt! It is in Texas, you get a 2 hour helicopter hunt where they provide an AR-15 and all the ammunition you could want to hunt wild hogs! First, we have talked about this in the past but wild hogs are an insanely invasive species that need to be hunted to try to control their numbers so there is NO LIMIT! You will also be supporting Outdoor Mentors, an organization with the goal of getting children to experience the outdoors in ways that they wouldn’t ordinarily be able to. Tickets are $20 a piece or 3 for $50 or 7 for $100! If you win feel free to invite me!
What Projects are we looking ahead at?
We have been trying to create a troubleshooting document where we will have answers to common problems and links to videos that can help you figure out those issues. When this goes live it will be linked on waltonsinc.com and it will live somewhere on meatgistics.
What’s on our Mind?
So, you probably only hear us mention this 2,000 more times in the next year but Walton’s went to the Wichita Zoobilee this year, which is an event where local restaurants and other businesses provide free drinks and/or food for customers. We made Apple Brats with Cheddar, Hatch Chili (will be available online soon) with Hot Pepper Cheese, Walton’s Bold Jerky with extra brown sugar, Dill Pickle Jerky, Bloody Mary Jerky and Teriyaki Jerky. We weren’t even aware it was a competition but we WON! We came in first place as 2019’s best vendor! We were judged on appearance, knowledge and enthusiasm and food quality, we beat all sorts of BBQ Shops, Restaurants and Bars. So, when you guys are making recipes off of our instructions, just know it is AWARD WINNING advice! Just kidding, but we are proud of this accomplishment, especially since we think one of our winning points was knowledge and enthusiasm!

Kosmo’s OP X-1 is an awesome new BBQ sauce that is amazing on grilled chicken and it is made right here in the USA! Also, it is on sale this month!
@Jonathon Rock & Roll guys! Keep up the good work! I’ve never seen a community so willing to share information and so willing to help each other produce the best product as possible. Well done.
@Jonathon I have not tried WD-40 yet, the brass piece on the knob end seems to move freely, and seems to have full range of travel… just not far enough to allow the mixer paddle to slip free… There is no rust, in fact, this appears to be brand new… don’t even see any scratches on the plastic lid…
I have removed the handle / crank, but the brass piece on that side is still in the mixer… It appears this inserts from the inside, and to remove it the paddle must be removed first… am I somehow wrong about this?
If weston or anyone else ever makes a slider press that hooks up to the stuffers or grinders you can be sure we will sell them!
Okay, Im sure you’ve already done this but in the one on the left the knob is screwed in and somewhat loose, on the left it is screwed in all the way AND I am pulling back on it, it drags the thicker part back into the recess. Also, I assume you have removed the screw and the handle from the other side and pulled out the brass piece over there as well?
I assume you have tried that as you attempted to spread out the sides. I’d try shooting some blaster or wd40 from both the inside and around the knob area and let it sit on its side a little. I think it is most likely going to be a rusty spring or rust on the threads and that blaster stuff is pretty amazing at dealing with rust.
