    The importance of properly packaging your Snack Sticks
    When made correctly Snack Sticks can be a near shelf stable product. One important factor in how long your snack sticks will keep is making sure they are dry when they get packaged. Any moisture that is trapped inside the bags can cause mold to grow which will destroy your product, so make sure that your snack sticks have been dried before you package them.

    Another thing you want to make sure of before packaging your snack sticks is that they are cool, a warm snack stick, even if the outside is dry, will cause moisture to build up on the inside of the bag which will end up causing the same issue as packaging a wet snack stick.

    Has anyone else ever tried an electric handheld double paddle mortar mixer to mix meat. Just got one and tried it out on a small 9 lb. Batch of pepperoni meat Cigars. Worked great and got good protien extraction. I have
    one of those 20 lb. Hand mixers. Its better than mixing by hand but is a pain to unload product with this double paddle i use a big stainless stock pot. Wish I’d thought of this years ago but better late than never.

    I have the cool pack on my carnivore grinder. The purpose is to keep the neck super cool and allow the meat/fat to flow through it easily. I’ve used it on and then taken it off. What I noticed is the fat will cling to the walls with it off. If I start with a cold neck and cold meat, it runs much cleaner.
    I like it well enough that I bought a spare to cycle them and keep frozen. P

  • @Screamin I would not mix one day and stuff the next. Once you add the cure and mix, it will start working as you hold the product overnight. You can mix, stuff, and then hold overnight (if not using an additive like ascorbic acid or encapsulated citric acid). With the cure in there, the product will start to firm up and when you stuff the next day, it will become next to impossible to get it out of most any stuffer. Once you start and add cure, you need to get it into casings that same day.
