I have some ground serloin. About 6 pounds. I put that with about 2 pounds of bacon. I plan to use the cheese burger cheddar wurst seasoning and some carrot fiber. I will also be putting about a pound of high temp cheddar cheese. I plan on putting that in casing and calling it bacon cheese burder cheddar wurst. Hoping the beef doesn’t make it dry, the carrot fiber and the bacon should help with moisture.
@gerygaub The carrot fiber will help for sure and as long as you are near or above 20% fat you should be okay. The issue with that is that Ground Sirloin is sometimes 90% or more lean. You might want to try adding some Cold Phosphate for moisture retention? Maybe hold off on adding that for your first batch and just add it if it comes out dry?
The Cheeseburger Cheddarwurst comes with sure cure so it can be smoked or you can leave out the cure and make it fresh. If you add the cure and smoke it just make sure you get REALLY good protein extraction to help prevent the fat from rendering out during the smoking process. If you are not curing and smoking and are making a fresh product let it cook at lower temperatures initially on the grill or in the pan, same goal here we don’t want any fat to render out.
Your creation sounds amazing and I don’t know if you knew it or not but we have declared this the Month of Bacon at Walton’s so when you make these please post pictures of them to Meatgistics and if you want either the Meatgistics or Waltons Facebook or twitter or wherever!
@Parksider Congrats! I can’t wait to get my coolbot meat cave up and running!
@Parksider heck yeah!! Fresh backstraps And I really like your cooler setup!!!
The only time I do a water bath is with cold water and Ice or throw them in snow when they reach 156 to stop the sausage from cooking any more. I have added a pan of water on top of the burner to make steam and raise the humidity but I have not found that to decrease cooking time much but will try it again with the smaller diameter stuff and see if it helps
