    What Is The Difference Between Cleaning & Sanitizing?

    A lot of people don’t realize that cleaning and sanitizing are actually two separate steps. Cleaning is where you first remove any dirt, grime, or fat residue or meat particles leftover on your equipment or work surfaces. Then, you sanitize by killing bacteria and disinfecting your work surfaces and equipment. Cleaning and sanitizing is very important because maintaining a clean environment will help you make a safer product, and then safer products will lead to a longer shelf-life.

    What Kind of Cleaners and Sanitizers Are Available for Meat Processing?

    What we recommend and use are some of these products…
    Cleaning larger areas - Neutra Sol Cleaner
    Cleaning smaller areas - Power Foam Cleaner
    Sanitizing larger areas - Bi-Quat
    Sanitizing smaller areas - Hard Surface 60 Second Sanitizer
    Both of the cleaners listed above are degreasers so they will help breakdown any leftover fat particles or meat leftover on your equipment or other working surfaces and make them easy to rinse off completely. And then the Hard Surface Sanitizer is Walton’s favorite option for a sanitizer because it works in 60 seconds, and is a no-rinse sanitizer so it doesn’t need to be rinsed off and can just be left on the product to dry until your ready to use your equipment or working surfaces next time.

    So always remember that cleaning and sanitizing are two different steps and by doing both properly, you’ll keep your equipment, work surfaces, and environment safer, you’ll make a safer product, and that will ultimately lead to a longer shelf-life in your meat products.

  • @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.
