Using brat seasoning for jerky?

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!
@sakepower acidity in the fruit can cause problems waltons dose have a pineapple seasoning
After more thought on yesterdays cook, I think I had the cooker over packed with sticks restricting the air flow around the product causing some case hardening. Time to build that cedar smokehouse I’ve been drawing plans for
@craigrice For sure. I do that with about everything anymore. Memory isn’t what it used to be. lol
