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!
