    Meatgistics: Chicken Cook off Competition

    See who wins in this head to head battle of Austin and Jon! We both took chicken breast, followed our own recipe and let the employees at Walton's decide the winner! Watch the video, read the guide, and then post your questions or comments below.

    Chicken Cook-off Competition

    This was round two of the cooking competitions between Austin and myself, I was able to convince him to put the Walton’s BBQ Championship Belt, which he won during our National BBQ Day Competition back on the line to see if I could wrestle it from him. This time we decided to go with Chicken breast and see who could grill up the tastier meal for the employees. We let (or made) them try both then rate them 1-3 and pick which they liked best. We had another employee look at the votes and total them so that we wouldn’t know until we were shooting the video!

    For Austin’s chicken he went with a high end chicken nugget like approach. He cut them up into bite size pieces and marinated them over night in Excalibur’s Chipotle Ranch Marinade and then he tossed them in Terrapin Ridge Farms Spicy Chipotle Garnish Squeeze and cooked them for about 45 minutes at 375. These things were loaded with taste when they came off the grill!

    For my recipe, I decided to steal a page from Austin’s book and stuff my chicken breast! I took a huge swing and stuffed it with Mozzarella cheese and Pineapple slices! I then coated it with Kosmo’s Spicy Killer Bee seasoning and added some MSG to that to really kick the whole thing up a few levels! The question is, did this put to many people off or did I hit the sweet spot?

    To make sure things were as even as possible we both used the same grill and the same pellets as well as chicken from the same source. Check out the video to see who won!

  • Squid and Octopus Weekly Blog Post - Octopus and Squid, Vacuum Packing

    Find out what's going on at Walton's and Meatgistics this week. We will have a loose schedule for soon to be released videos, what we are working on long-term and maybe a few quick tips and tricks that are on our mind!

    What Videos are being released soon?

    Depending on what you see as soon we will have the almost complete first round of Meatgistics University Classes released. We have broken everything down into these categories; Meat Processing Equipment, Seasoning and Additives, Fresh Sausage, Cured Sausage, Jerky, Sausage Casings, Deli Meats, Smoked Meats, Cured Whole Muscle Meats, and Specialty Sausages. Each of these topics will have multiple entry-level classes covering topics like the type of casing to use, equipment needed and a basic processing class where appropriate.

    What Projects are we looking ahead at?

    We are going to be doing two new Will it BBQ’s, hopefully, this week where we try BBQ’ing Squid and Octopus! The squid was a suggestion by Bob Zambutto through Walton’s Inc Facebook account! I had been wanting to do both of these for a while and when I went to our local Asian Grocery Store (Tai Binh for anyone local to Wichita, KS) and they had lots of options for both, they have almost anything and I got a few more weird ideas while I was there! Anyway, I picked up some baby octopus and a full size one, some small squid and two large ones as well. I am excited and nervous to see how this goes if nothing else it should be fun to watch!

    What’s on our Mind?

    Did you know that you shouldn’t vacuum pack Mushrooms or Garlic? I was reading a Vacmaster VP120 instruction manual the other day and I saw an interesting note that said not to vacuum pack Garlic or Mushrooms! I had no idea that you shouldn’t do this so I thought I would share that with meatgistics readers to let you know not to do it as well. Apparently, they both are prone to bacteria that will continue to grow in oxygen-free environments. I was hoping it was something more impressive than that but it is good information to have.

    New Products

    22" X 24" Collagen Sheets This are typically used for larger whole muscle cuts of meat, like when you are making prosciutto, capocollo, or other dried hams. This is an item that we have had lots of requests for over the years so we were happy to finally find a reliable and reputable source for it.

    @jonathon
    Thanks for the response!

    I think a video on processed celery would be incredible. The only place I have been able to find celery powder as a cure was from “The Sausage Maker”, they have a Facebook page. It was expensive, designed only for sausages, and wasn’t packaged well.

    As for the tackiness, good idea with the cornstarch! There are a bunch of big brands with zero additives that were able to achieve the soft texture with no tackiness, so I’m thinking it has to be in the processing. I read an article where someone at KRAVE mentioned a couple details about how they process their jerky. He said they first inject the meat, then cook the whole pieces, then slice, then marinate, then dry. I have messed around with the idea behind this process a lot. Injecting with brine, sous-viding at a variety of temperatures and times, slicing, marinating, and drying. Decent results, but to be honest the high sugar method you introduced to me has seemed to have better results.

    Anyway, I will keep trying to figure this out and will definitely keep you guys posted if I make any headway. In the meantime, if there is anything else you think might be worth testing, please let me know! It would be great to try and perfect this process together.

    @bob-s-meatgistics I moved one of my first pork butts into the oven and my whole house smelled like smoke. My wife did not stop complaining for a week until the smell was gone from both the house and the oven. I finish all my cooks outside. If you wrap it to speed up the cook you may want to unwrap it for the last hour to put the bark back on it.
