So, Will it BBQ?
Absolutely this will BBQ, as Ali said, 10 out of 10, would do again! The Bacon in the batter really took this over the top and made it wonderful, it might not have had as much of a smoky flavor as we were hoping but it was all around delicious!

@joduff cool thanx. Did you add any binders? Curious if it would affect the drying. Also what temp did you put the dehydrator at?
I used the 16mm casings from Walton’s. The only thing that I experienced was that the collagen didn’t bond to the meat quite as well as it does for the snack sticks. I’ll have to keep working on it.
The flavor was great and the texture was good too.
@Jonathon Pics sent. Thanks!
