mtnjim I’ve made two 10lb batches of venison/pork snack sticks. I used 2:1 ratio of lean venison and port butt. I smoked using a Cook Shack model 55 smoker and started low (120F) without smoke and door ajar. I added smoke the 2nd hour and ramped up the heat every hour x 3 until the batch reached approx 160F in 4 hours. They taste and look great.

Using Seasonings Outside Their Intended Purpose - Be Creative
Just because a seasoning is a labeled as a snack stick seasoning, doesn’t mean that you cannot use it for something else like summer sausage or jerky. Be creative and don’t be afraid to use a seasoning for something other than what is was originally developed for. For example, if you really like the Sriracha Flavored Snack Stick Seasoning, but you would prefer making summer sausage or jerky, there is nothing wrong with using the snack stick seasoning in a different product like summer sausage or jerky.
So if you like the sound of a certain seasoning flavor, but it’s not labeled for the meat snack you wanted to make, don’t be afraid to still try it out and use it in any type of meat snack!
