Inferno bratwurst seasoning for ground meat jerky

  • Does anyone know if the inferno bratwurst seasoning can be used for ground beef jerky and if so how much seasoning and cure would you use for 5 lbs of meat?

    @laurie612 Yes, you can use the Inferno Brat to make jerky, you just have to make sure that you add cure as the inferno brat will not come with a cure package. You can buy individual 1 oz packages of Sure Cure and that would do 25 lb of meat so if you are doing 5 lb batches you would use 1/5 of an oze which comes out to just under 1 teaspoon of the cure. For the Inferno you would use 0.1125 lb of seasoning which is 1.8 oz for a 5 lb batch. Make sure you shake the bag up before measuring that out to evenly distribute the seasoning throughout the bag.

    Now, using a Bratwurst seasoning for a jerky might give a stronger taste in jerky than it would in a Bratwurst and since this is the hottest Bratwurst Seasoning we sell I’d guess you might end up with some seriously hot Jerky, which is probably what you are looking for!

  • @jonathon Thanks jonathon. I bought the cure from you a while back and will definitely try this. Would this be the same measurements for 5 lbs of snack sticks? The hotter the better for me

    @laurie612 Yes, if you are making 5 lb of Inferno Snack Sticks it would be the same 1.8 oz for 5 lb batch. Inferno is a great taste as well as being hot so either way you go I think you will be happy with the results!

    Oh… I ground the pork fat and the venison at the same time. 2 chunks of venison, 1 chunk of pork, back and forth…

    Yes… sure cure and sure gel binder. The venison and pork fat were both still partially frozen when I ground them. First through the large course plate, then again through the small plate. (Not sure of sizes, but these are the plates i normally use for summer sausage). I probably should have put the meat back in the freezer before seasoning but i was pressed for time. I mixed by hand for 14 or 15 minutes. I also think I might have added to much water. The video said 2 quarts for wild game 2 pints for fatty pork. I put in 1 quart and about another cup. I mixed until it got tacky and then mixed some more. The meat seemed soupy to me but the video said that would be ok.
    The shriveling occurred before I bumped the temp up. I was using a digital thermometer with a probe, when the temp stalled for a couple hours, I suspected the temp might be reading inaccurately so I opened the door to confirm with a dial thermometer. The digital was accurate but the sausage was already shriveling.
    Another thing that bothered me was the casings… these had perforations for some reason. I e never used perforated casings before and seemed like I was losing a pot of moisture through them. Did I have the wrong casings? The other fibrous casings in the catalog said you were supposed to poke them anyway.
