How can you use other seasonings for jerky or summer sausage/ snack sticks ?? Can you use regular brat ( fresh ) sausage seasoning with cure to make jerky ??? And can you use , maybe , German or polish sausage for snack sticks / summer sausage recipe???
@angel4us Great question! You can use any seasoning like a Bratwurst Seasoning that is designed for a fresh product for a cured product like Jerky or Snack Stick Seasonings as long as you add the cure. The same is true vice versa as long as you do NOT add the cure. This is part of the reason that we do not have the cure mixed into the seasonings and instead have it in a separate package. Just go into it knowing that often if you use a Brat, Summer Sausage or Snack Stick seasoning as a jerky seasoning it is going to have a stronger taste, which isn’t necessarily an issue depending on your preferences!
@joduff cool thanx. Did you add any binders? Curious if it would affect the drying. Also what temp did you put the dehydrator at?
I used the 16mm casings from Walton’s. The only thing that I experienced was that the collagen didn’t bond to the meat quite as well as it does for the snack sticks. I’ll have to keep working on it.
The flavor was great and the texture was good too.
@Jonathon Pics sent. Thanks!
