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!
@rodneycaudill ok ok, y’all are convincing me. I will look more at the vacuum chamber. Thanks for y’alls input!
I bought a chamber vacmaster vp 120 from waltons over a year ago, and it works great. just don’t get nothing inside the bag where it seals the bag.
We’ll that was the first thing that came to mind the first batch i ever made. had a cold beer in hand and was sampling one and closed my eyes to savor the moment and the smoke aroma smelled just like i had a lit cigar in my mouth thus the term [meat cigars]
