I am getting ready to make some snack stix using these
1 package Mandarin Teriyaki snack stick
1 oz Sure Cure
4 oz of Carrot Fiber
4oz Encapsulated Citric Acid
19mm Collagen Casings
2 Quarts Ice Cold Water
Would I use more water since i’m using carrot fiber?
Would I mix the sure cure and carrot fiber with the water?
@harpo79 No, mix both the cure and the carrot fiber in with the meat and add the water, doing it the other way wont really hurt anything there is just no need and the carrot fiber might bind up the cure too efficiently. For water just use the 2 qts, that is more than enough. Using more won’t help your bind and it will increase your cook time. Remember if you are using encapsulated citric acid to go right to the smoker!
I hope this wasn’t too late to help!
I bought a chamber vacmaster vp 120 from waltons over a year ago, and it works great. just don’t get nothing inside the bag where it seals the bag.
We’ll that was the first thing that came to mind the first batch i ever made. had a cold beer in hand and was sampling one and closed my eyes to savor the moment and the smoke aroma smelled just like i had a lit cigar in my mouth thus the term [meat cigars]
@Jonathon Was there another thread or topic that addressed glycerine and using a vacuum tumbler?
