Taste Testing


  • Power User

    We did some experimenting yesterday with a few of the Walton’s spice mixes to get ready for deer season. We wanted to expand our selection. We have sticks and ring bologna down, perfected Waltons hot dog/chili dog last year and now on to the bratwurst!
    So here is our review:
    Beer Brat-definitely a keeper good overall flavor, has a hint of an ale smell to it
    Hot buffalo- good flavor but being from Western NY, buffalo has a whole different meaning, needs some heat, thinking ghost pepper cheese will do the trick there and maybe some cayenne or or habanero
    Inferno- great taste and heat, perfect stock mix for the fellas
    #1504 pork seasoning-great flavor, nice taste of sage for breakfast sausage, if you like sage this is for you.
    #10 pork sausage seasoning-good general pork breakfast mix
    Philly cheese steak-GAME CHANGER!!! this is for real, really tastes like a philly steak. Never thought about adding dehydrated red/green pepper and onion to a mix…genius! Better stock up we’ll be ordering a lot of this! I’m going to grill some rolls and melt some harvarti cheese on them.
    reduced salt blue ribbon-another hit, great all around flavor, add it to the cart, we’ll be ordering that too
    parmesan garlic and onion/garlic-not our favorites, just an okay flavor but after the others with bold flavors it was a bit of a letdown.

    No judgement, just our opinions… Do have to say i used pre-tubed 32mm casing that were leftover from last fall, kept well packed in salt in the fridge and they were very good, no tears or holes. They are on the list too!!! Stuffed on the Weston #22 grinder i got last fall from Walton’s with the stuffer auger-love that thing! Just right for running 5# test batches.
    Thanks for supporting the weekend warriors as much as the big processors, we appreciate it!!

    @parksider I’d agree with pretty much everything, the Parm Garlic is a more basic taste then what I was hoping for but I guess Parmesan might be a hard flavor to make really stand out in meat?

    I am making more and more Inferno and adding Ghost Pepper or Sriracha Cheese to them. Philly Cheese Steak is an awesome one, play around with adding different cheeses to this, huge difference if you add Swiss or Mozz or Cheddar and all are good! I like the Medium #1 Best Seller (we call it Holly Regular in house) more than either 1504 or #10 but thats all just personal preference. The Supreme Pizza and the Habanero Mango are two that I love that yoi didn’t mention!

    @mcmillenbr Need some more details. 5 pound batch? How much water are you using? I have never had water run out.

    I tried making snack sticks for the second time. This time I added citric acid for some tang. The mix never got sticky and when I stuffed the casing it was not smooth and the water seperated and ran out on the counter top. The meat was like little seperated lumps in the casings. After cooking, they tasted good, but the texture was like compressed saw dust.
