JohninPa Ok, Just wanted to make sure. An overnight hold with ECA could cause the lack of snap with a mushy product.
Making snack sticks
i was wanting to be sure, that i maix everything ,stuff,and then let rest in fride for 12 hrs.? Or mix seasoning and cure rest 12 hrs. then add corrot fiber water and stuff?
h8fulhilbily You are correct, you will want to mix everything and then stuff before holding your product overnight. Trying to hold it before stuffing is going to make it very difficult (if not impossible) for your stuffer to get it into the casings.
In the future, another option would be to use a cure accelerator like Encapsulated Citric Acid, then you could go right from stuffing to the smokehouse.
Let us know if you need anything else!
Thanks, i will do that.
