Habanaro and Mango seasoning.

Hi guys, question: I saw on a Facebook post someone made the Walton’s habanero and mango brats and they looked good. I bought a couple packs of the seasoning and was wondering if anyone ever smoked them? I would add some Prague and assuming some water. Just curious
@guido69 There is no reason that you should not be able to smoke your bratwursts as long as you add the correct amount of sure cure, which is 1 oz to every 25 lb of meat. Since you are smoking them your process is going to have to change a little. You are going to need to get some protein extraction during the mixing stage or you run the risk of fatting out during the slow smoking process. Fatting out is when the fat separates from the meat and renders out of your sausage leaving you with a dry less tasty sausage. Fatting out happens when you are cooking your product at low temps for a long time like you do when smoking. So, make sure you get enough protein extraction and consider adding a binder like carrot fiber or sure gel.

Let us know how they turn out.
@PapaSop these look very tasty. Ever tried wet brining for a few hours for more moisture? Sure, blame it on the adult beverages.

I just finished 25 lbs of Jalapeño Summer Sausage and snack sticks. I used my new 44lb meat mixer from Weston. The mixer worked great. The only downside to it is that it is not easy to clean. The mixer is only welded on the outside, so strands of meat tend to get stuck in the corners.
I also tried sodium phosphate for the first time instead of protein powder. Only needed 1/4 cup vs. 2-1/2 cups of protein powder. Flavor and texture was still excellent.
@PapaSop I don’t buy too many packaged sausages these days (thanks to Walton’s!) but these were very good. They were on sale for $3.99 so I figured I couldn’t go wrong!
I used the above seasoning on the pork along with an extra dusting of cayenne. The ‘Chicken Red’ works really when used liberally on chicken or pork. I don’t normally use premixed seasonings but this one is good and work fast to infuse flavor. It gives everything a great color. It’s salty and garlicky with a little heat. I stumbled upon it by chance and have only seen it at a grocer an hour from me. I stock up any time I get that way.
