Snack Stick Question

  • Team Orange

    I’ve been making fresh brats and other sausage for a while and want to up my game and do some snack sticks. My question is do I need to use sure gel or carrot fiber when mixing or can I just use the meat, seasoning and sure cure? Also do I need to incorporate water into the mix for better stuffing.

    Thanks for the help.

    Phil Layfield No, you don’t need to add sure gel or carrot fiber, it will help but you can do it without it. Just make sure you mix it very well and get lots of protein extraction. I’d add about a quart of water per 25 lb of meat, if you arent using a binder I wouldn’t add more than that.
