Snack stick questions

  • I am making my first attempt on snack sticks this weekend. I am wanting to make a 10 lb batch first just to make sure it turns out ok. I am using carrot fiber for my binder but wasn’t sure if I need to still add water (as is states for the sure gel). My last question is do I cut them to length before or after I smoke them? Thanks in advance

    mrod you’ll still need to add water with carrot fiber. About 1 pint. Then smoke your sticks in as long of lengths as you can. Cut to length after smoking.

    mrod Carrot fiber is going to keep more moisture in the product and snack sticks are a semi-dried product, so you might have a little issue with the texture but it should still be okay but in the future use sure gel, soy protein, or super bind when making a cured sausage. Yes, cut them to length for the smoker, you will be able to fit more of them on a stick then if you loop them at the top and the bottom.
