Best Way to Cook Wagyu Steak
Weekly Blog Post - Best Way to Cook Wagyu Steak
Find out what's going on at Walton's and Meatgistics this week. We will have a loose schedule for soon to be released videos, what we are working on long-term and maybe a few quick tips and tricks that are on our mind!
What Videos are being released soon?
Wagyu Steak Cooking Test - We took two relatively inexpensive Wagyu Flank Steaks and Sous Vide one and Reverse Seared the other. We weighed them both before and after cooking to see which one retained more of its moisture, I was surprised and pleased with the results of that. In the video, I go over taste, appearance, and texture and declare a winner, the decision is final and no appeals will be heard!
It’s going to be a little while until we release any new videos aside from the Wagyu and a few Will it BBQs that we have stored up. All of our efforts are aimed at getting Meatgistics University ready before the busy season. Ideally, we will release the entire run of beginner classes for all categories at the same time.
What Projects are we looking ahead at?
It is all Meatgistic University all the time right now, aside from a commercial we are shooting for Walton’s Inc all of our time has been spent planning, writing scripts and shooting these videos. We REALLY hope you guys like this reorganization, the early classes might be a little overly simplified for some of our more experienced users but we have some really cool ideas for later episodes!
What’s on our Mind?
This is one of our last weeks with Ali at waltonsinc.com. If you guys have looked at a certain shot on meatgistics, or any of our social media accounts and thought it was neat or well done there is a 90% chance she took it, she is going to continue helping us remotely but it will be different without her in the office. She will be greatly missed but will certainly go on to do excellent things in the near future!
Cooked a batch of summmer in PK 100 casings are 1 7/8 by 12 cooked at 120 for one hour then 140 two hours then 180 tell internal of 152 but when I went to pull them the fat had liquefied any ideas

Oh… I ground the pork fat and the venison at the same time. 2 chunks of venison, 1 chunk of pork, back and forth…
Yes… sure cure and sure gel binder. The venison and pork fat were both still partially frozen when I ground them. First through the large course plate, then again through the small plate. (Not sure of sizes, but these are the plates i normally use for summer sausage). I probably should have put the meat back in the freezer before seasoning but i was pressed for time. I mixed by hand for 14 or 15 minutes. I also think I might have added to much water. The video said 2 quarts for wild game 2 pints for fatty pork. I put in 1 quart and about another cup. I mixed until it got tacky and then mixed some more. The meat seemed soupy to me but the video said that would be ok.
The shriveling occurred before I bumped the temp up. I was using a digital thermometer with a probe, when the temp stalled for a couple hours, I suspected the temp might be reading inaccurately so I opened the door to confirm with a dial thermometer. The digital was accurate but the sausage was already shriveling.
Another thing that bothered me was the casings… these had perforations for some reason. I e never used perforated casings before and seemed like I was losing a pot of moisture through them. Did I have the wrong casings? The other fibrous casings in the catalog said you were supposed to poke them anyway.
