I can’t comment directly on snack sticks, but I’ve had to hold other cured sausage for close to 48 hours because life got in the way of smoking. That batch did have a cure accelerator in it (ascorbic acid). It came out alright. At the very least, fat out was not a problem.
Using jerky seasoning for Snack Stick question
I Bought your sweet Chipotle jerky seasoning and it was a big hit with everyone. I would like to use this seasoning to make snack sticks instead of jerky. Have you ever used jerky seasons to make snack sticks? If you have do you need to increase the amount you use per pound of meat? The amount of cure #1 I’ll use will be based on the amount of ground meat I use. Thanks.
@retired-railroader Yes, you can absolutely use Jerky Seasoning to make Snack Sticks and vice versa, many people do this! If you use a seasoning that is made for snack sticks, summer sausage or brats it might give a slightly stronger taste in jerky so if you want to back it off a little that’s fine. I wouldn’t back it off too much though, perhaps 5% or so. Personally I just add the regular amount and enjoy the slightly strong taste. Enjoy!
