Hot Buffalo Wing seasoning with Blue Cheese!
We ran 25 lbs of chicken breast through a 3/16th plate (once) and added the Hot Buffalo Wing Seasoning and 2 lbs of the Blue Cheese to the mix. We then stuffed them in collagen casings and they are currently in the freezer awaiting vacuum packing. However I took two brats that were misshapen and the left overs from the stuffer home last night.
I tossed them on my green mountain daniel boone grill (currently using Cherry pellets) at 390 until they were cooked. The taste was amazing! The Hot Buffalo Seasoning did not have as much heat as I was expecting but the overall taste was outstanding! For chicken brats I highly recommend the combination of the Hot Buffalo Wing Seasoning with the Blue Cheese!

I am going to try this. My wife would love these!
One other thing we did on this was use a binder to help with the consistency as the last time we did chicken brats we thought they were a little crumbly.

I love the buffalo wing seasoning!! I just make pork brats but I only do 20 pounds of meat and add some franks to my ice water
@jeff cutting down on the lb of meat you use but still using the entire package of seasoning is a great way to increase flavor! I usually do this when I am making something like Habanero Mango where I really want a very strong taste. Another possible option would be to add MSG as long as you don’t have an issue with MSG, MSG gets a bad name but I love it, kicks up the flavor of whatever you put it in!

I believe the recommended curing time is 12 hours but can I go less than that? I was expecting my order to be here tonight and it won’t be here till tomorrow morning now.
I was going to mix up my batch of jerky tonight but will have to do it tomorrow on my lunch break. Just wondering if tomorrow evening would be long enough to let the meat cure.
Your recipe calls for 1. Sure Cure, 2. Sure Gel Meat Binder, and 3. Smoked Meat Stabilizer. I have all but the Sure Gel Meat Binder. Can I get by without using this? Second question- Is Excalibur’s Cure Excellerator the same as Sure Cure?
@andyman Great question, Carrot Fiber holds up to 26 times its weight in water, and while the 80 oz is still well inside that I have never done that before. I max out (even with Carrot Fiber) at 64 oz which is 2 qts. My only fear with doing 80 is that it might take a lot longer to cook as it will have more water content that will be trying to evaporate. Most of that water should be bound up in the carrot fiber though so it wouldn’t really be available to be cooked out. Hmmm, my recommendation, to be safe is to stick with 64 oz of water.
Now, as to should you add more seasoning, some people will taste the difference if you did not add additional seasonings and some (most) will not. Your water and your seasoning is technically part of your meat block (anyone who is reading this who doesn’t consider this don’t worry!) so adjusting your meat block to include your water is sometimes done. If you do decide to add more spices or seasonings I would add aromatics and things like Rosemary and Basil, don’t add more salt as that is formulated specifically for the meat block.
Hope this helps and if you do decide to go with 80 oz of water then I would be very interested in the results!
i use denuded round. higher cost, less waste, cleaner eating
@jonathon I enjoyed this line of questions and comments, it made me think. Here is my related question: Assume I use 25 lbs. of meat to make summer sausage and add one package, 4 oz., of Carrot Fiber and 80 oz. of water. The ratio is 20 times the weight of water to the weight of CF. In other words, I am adding 5 lbs. 4 oz. of water/CF paste to my meat dough. Should I adjust the amount of salt and spices, I add to the dough? I am concerned that the flavor will be weaker if I don’t add spices for the new total, 30 lbs. curious as to what y’all thinking.
