What Is Deer & Wild Game Rinse?
This special blend of additives from Excalibur Seasoning is designed to protect and assist in limiting bacteria growth on your wild game before you can get your meat processed either at home or by your local butcher. It is used as a carcass spray, mixed at a ratio of 8 oz per 1 gallon of water. Simply mix and dissolve the additive in water and spray on the carcass both inside and outside, especially concentrating on the wound area.
How Does Deer & Wild Game Rinse Work?
It works by lowering the pH of the meat, stopping bacteria reproduction, and inhibiting mold growth. It also prevents browning caused by oxidation. Since this product is a very low cost item and it helps produce a much safer and higher quality meat product, every hunter ought to have this in their hunting gear for all their wild game processing.

That’s a great question but a difficult one to answer! Usually, Worcestershire Sauce will have a pH of 3.6 - 4.1 while Soy Sauce has 4.4 - 5.4. Negative pH (below 7) can cause denaturing in your meat and if you have something like the 3.6 (low range of the Worcestershire Sauce) it can cause issues even when added in smaller amounts.
If you look at the ingredients in Mandarin Teriyaki Snack Stick or Sweet Teriyaki Jerky (you can do this by scrolling down and then clicking on “Additional Info” button) you will see Soy Sauce as an ingredient, so it can absolutely be added, it just needs to be in the correct amount. This is a major reason that we recommend prepackaged seasonings, your at home recipe can be wonderful but it also has the potential to destroy your products.
So, if you are going to experiment with Sauces with a negative pH then my advice is to start at very low concentrations and work your way up till you find a good amount that provides the taste you are looking for and does not negatively affect your finished product.
Anyone else have any suggestions?
Does soy sauce denature the meat like worcestershire sauce or is it ok to use in a meat stick?
Try it on just smoke. That should work fine.
I have tried a TF 34MM processed casing I got from Quality Casings. A 32MM HF and a 30MM TF, both clear processed, I got from Mar-Co Sales. Devro Is the brand I have now. I have been hanging them. the 30MM has been the best but still tougher than I want. Ideally I want a 32MM processed casing for my brats. Does Walton’s send out samples? I do have to order some other items.
Thank you for your suggestions. I will try a couple of ideas your suggestions have given me.
