I have been cutting my snack strands double the length I can hang in my smoker with out the ends being too close to the heat source and always keeping the length divisible by 4" or 5". When finished smoking I then cut them in either 4" or 5" length then my Dear Wife vacuum seals them in pint size Pre-cut VACMASTER vacuum sealer bags in our home sealer as we do not have a commercial sealer. She has had tremendous luck with these bags and gets almost 100% seals that last. With a home sealer we have never had much luck going over a Quart bag for dependable seals regardless of the brand of bags. Can’t wait till I can get a commercial sealer. I also love using scissors for trimming my smoked products
Making jerky with snack stick or brat seasoning
Can you make jerky with snack stick or summer sausage or brat seasonings by adding cure ???
angel4us Absolutely you can…I need to find a way to make this a well-known thing as we get this question very often and seems to be coming up more and more recently.
Yes, you can absolutely use Jerky Seasoning to make Snack Sticks and vice versa. If you use a seasoning that is made for snack sticks, summer sausage or brats it might give a slightly stronger taste in jerky so if you want to back it off a little that’s fine. I wouldn’t back it off too much though, perhaps 5% or so. Personally I just add the regular amount and enjoy the slightly strong taste.
