Clarko I use my regular Summer Sausage mixes when making sticks for the little tykes, adding about half the recommended amount of cheddar cheese. As they get more adventurous, add more spice. Trust is what we develop
bckarl Yes you can almost (i can’t thing of one where you couldn’t but I am being careful) use a jerky seasoning to make snack sticks or vice versa. There is a caveat however, and that is that Jerky seasoning will almost always require less seasoning per lb of meat than snack stick because it is topical and not ground in. For example the Jalapeno Jerky is .625 to do 25 lb batch and the Jalapeno Snack Stick is 1.5 lb . Not all of them are twice as much for snack sticks but most of them are going to be in that range. I would start at 10-20% (depending on how strong you like things) MORE seasoning per lb and then adjust from there.
cykobowtech Ah okay, the pepper stick is good, not a ton going on but a good basic snack stick. I’ve never tried the hunters blend but it looks pretty close but it might not have the same level of kick. If you are looking to add heat, I’d recommend you add Ghost pepper Cheese or 60K red pepper
