What is the best way to breakdown the amount of seasoning per pound needed in your packets for home use.
@BigJohn72 The best way it to break it down by pound and then multiply that by the number of pounds you will be using. So if you have a 1.5 lb bag of seasoning that will season 25 lb of meat you divide 1.5 / 25 and get .06. So that is .06 lb of seasoning to 1 lb of meat. If you are doing 5 lb then you would use .3 lb of seasoning. For more information check out Austin’s post here https://meatgistics.waltonsinc.com/topic/174/using-a-scale-to-measure-seasoning-for-smaller-batches.
Two quick tips, if you are making a cured product don’t forget to portion out the cure the same way and shake the bag before you divide out the seasoning so the different spices are as mixed as possible.
Let us know if you need anything else!
@rodneycaudill ok ok, y’all are convincing me. I will look more at the vacuum chamber. Thanks for y’alls input!
I bought a chamber vacmaster vp 120 from waltons over a year ago, and it works great. just don’t get nothing inside the bag where it seals the bag.
We’ll that was the first thing that came to mind the first batch i ever made. had a cold beer in hand and was sampling one and closed my eyes to savor the moment and the smoke aroma smelled just like i had a lit cigar in my mouth thus the term [meat cigars]
