    What is Kielbasa?

    Kielbasa is polish for sausage. It is typically stuffed into a non-edible collagen casing that is removed after smoking or a large diameter hog casing. The seasoning and flavor normally has a stronger than average garlic flavor and is shaped into a ring. It can be eaten whole or sliced and cut into smaller chunks to serve as part of a larger dish or casserole. Kielbasa is typically made from pork, but may also contain beef, poultry, or even wild game.

    Meat Block

    7.5 lb 85/15 Lean Beef
    8.75 lb 80/20 Lean Pork
    8.75 lb 50/50 Pork Trim

    Additives

    1 package Signature Smoked Kielbasa Seasoning #4550393220
    1oz Sure Cure (packet included with the seasoning)
    2oz Smoked Meat Stabilizer
    6oz Sure Gel Meat Binder
    1 Quart Ice Cold Water

    Process

    Grind pork trim through 3/16in grinder plate, twice
    Grind lean beef and pork through 1/8in grinder plate

    Mix

    Begin mixing lean meats first. While mixing add Seasoning, Sure Gel Meat Binder (or Soy Protein Blend), Sure Cure, and Ice Cold Water. Mix for 5 minutes. Add ground pork trim and mix for an additional 3 minutes, for a total of 8 minutes of mixing time

    Stuff

    Stuff into 40mm Collagen Casings or large diameter Natural Hog Casings

    Notes

    You may substitute other meats besides pork and beef and if you cannot keep the lean and fat separated during mixing you can still mix everything together at one time. Try to keep your lean to fat ratio around 70/30.

    If you do not use a cure accelerator like Smoked Meat Stabilizer, then hold in a refrigerator for approximately 12 hours or overnight

    Smokehouse Schedule

    120F for 30 minutes
    130F for 30 minutes (start adding smoke now and throughout entire cook cycle)
    140F for 30 minutes
    150F for 30 minutes
    160F for 30 minutes
    170F until internal meat temperature of 160F
    Shower final product or place in a ice water bath for 10-20 minutes to set the casings and cool the product

    Other Notes

    Place a small pan of water in the bottom of smokehouse during entire cooking cycle to help increase humidity
    If your smoker, smokehouse, or oven cannot reach temperatures as low as 120F, just start as low as possible and slowly increase the temperature over time

    Hello from Alpine, Texas.

    Hello Everyone,
    Gary T. From Branford CT, I’ve been making jerky for some 30 years now, not sure how I missed Waltons site but I’m glad I found it, great to see all the videos tips and forums.

    Trying the Waltons BOLD Jerky seasoning today in a restructured mix, I normally try a mix as is the 1st time then alter to my taste later on, I needs TONS of flavor so I’m hoping this one does the trick. I also bought the Teriyaki & Cajun to try.

    Thanks for the invite. Gary T.

    Hi Guys,
    Quick question? Why is it NOT recommended to mix your cure and seasoning until it’s ready to be used??

    Because the Excalibur Jerky Seasoning comes in bags suited to use 25# of meat I wanted to break it down into smaller mixing batches, I know I don’t mix 25# of meat at a time, I usually cut it in half for 12.5# each. Anyway I’d really like to mix all the cure and seasoning once then break in down for smaller batches of meat for later use, also when I say later I only mean like 1-3 months.
    Thanks Gary T.

    This is my tounge recipe. I get the tounge usually from people I work with that buy freezer beef from a farmer. They usually throw them out or feed them to the dog. NO WAY. Here is how I process the tounge.

    Rinse the tounge well as it is dipped in a antiseptic. State law I think. Lay it out on your cutting board. Cut the tounge into at just back from where it tarts to narrow as the narrow part of the tounge has very little meat . Now take your sharp fillet knife and skin the little well marbled roast. Now lets make the juice. I like to use Mrs. Smiths dill pickle / Jalapeno mix follow the directions on the mix.
    Then smoke it with your favorite wood till the internal temp for beef reaches 160 degrees . I then remove from the smoker and let cool for 20 minutes. I then cut the tounge into chunks about the size of sugar cubes and pack into a qt. jar. I then slice a Vidallia onion into rings and add to the qt. jar. I pour the pickling spice over it covering all of the tounge and onion. Install a lid and refrigerate for 2 days and enjoy. I take this to work and always bring home a empty jar. Another version is brad and butter pickle mix.

  • Most recipes I’ve researched suggest an IT of 152° - 155°. My question is, what’s the most efficient method of taking the IT of a snack stick. Should I use a probe and slide it into the center of one of the snack sticks hanging in the smoker? Is it better to slide the probe into the top of a snack stick as it hangs or up from the bottom? Thanks in advance for your help!
