DennyO check out the Meatgisitics University videos for the products you want to make, they will tell you what to use. There are also multiple Meatgistics University posts about the different types of additives and their uses.
A beginner here who needs some help… I want to make some Summer Sausage using the Jalapeno Seasoning mix. I don’t want to do 25lbs but start with say 10lbs. so, I opened the conversion chart up and saw for 5lb conversion it listed three(3) separate amounts; 1/2 cup … 4tbsp … 1tsp . Here’s that dumb question no one wants to ask; A 1/2 cup of ? … 4tbsps of ? … 1tsp of ? I am thinking these ‘amounts’ must have something to do with (1) the Jalapeno seasoning, (2) the Sure Cure, and (3) the Encapsulated Citric Acid?
Retired157 Those measurements of 1/2 cup, 4 tbspn, and 1 tsp is for the summer sausage seasoning, everything on that page is just the seasoning. The cure would be on the Cure Conversion and that would be 2.5 tspn for a 10 lb batch of meat. Any additives would be on the Additive Conversion Chart. Hope this helped!
So, to be more clear, to do 5 lb of the Jalapeno Summer Sausage you add 1/2 cup, plus 4 tbspn and 1 tsp of the seasoning.
OH… I think the light just went on! If I take 1/2 cup of seasoning, PLUS 4tbsps of seasoning PLUS 1tsp of seasoning, it would add up to a total of 4.8oz of seasoning per 5lbs of meat… Thank You!
