Weekly Blog Post - October Giveaway,Country Brown Sugar Cure & Vegan Burgers
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?
All of the Meatgistics University Videos initial classes. We are calling these our 10(x) classes, so Meat Processing Equipment 101 - Meat Grinders, will be a class. All of these should be done and ready for release by next Friday, October 12th. We are really hoping you guys like these and get some use out of them, we have been working on them to a greater or lesser extent all year!
What Projects are we looking ahead at?
We have some interesting, or nasty depending on your point of view, Will it BBQs coming up. I don’t want to spoil it but this has taken a turn for the exotic here so there should be some cool ones coming up.
What’s on our Mind?
I was in Vancouver BC this past weekend with my wife and first of all, let me say what a beautiful city that is. If you haven’t been and enjoy nature (especially enormous trees and the ocean) I highly recommend it. Anyway, while I am proud to say my wife is no longer fully vegetarian I knew we weren’t going to get out of there without eating at some “nonsense” trendy vegetarian eatery. So, I jumped on the grenade chose a place that specialized in Vegan and Vegetarian “Burgers”. Somewhat surprisingly, it was probably the best meal we have while we were up there! This place (MeeT in Gastown) was a credit to creative cooking, they used interesting ingredients and everything from our burgers & fries to our salads were delicious. Plus, they were incredibly friendly
MW102 Temp and pH Meter with MA920B pH Electrode allows you to measure the pH (potential of Hydrogen) in your meat for a relatively reasonable price for even the heavy home user (looking at you @parksider ! ) Changes in pH can be a major factor in shelf stability and life of your meat snacks like Summer Sausage or Snack Sticks.
Wow! That sounds pretty cool! I’ve never really relied on our product being shelf stable we’ve always refrigerated it other than throwing some sticks in a bag for a hunt or tailgate party. This may launch us into retail! Getting ready to install the walkin cooler, concrete gets poured tomorrow
@tarp it tastes pretty good, for a newbie to sausage making & blending my own spice blends.
Just thinking about the social media thing. I do follow your Facebook page. ( I think my family took a collective gasp when I finally signed into that). I’m still trying to figure out how the pound symbol(#) ended up being a hashtag!?
@ihang10 So then I would say that protein extraction is probably what is causing your issue. The fat renders out of the product and gets trapped between the outside of the sausage and the inside of the casing. Then when the product cools the fat congeals and you can’t get it to adhere. Mixing for a few more minutes will probably help resolve your issue. The other thing is when do you add your fat? Sometimes if you just mix in your fat with your lean the lean can coat the fat chunks but never really bind with it, so I would suggest you add it during the second grind.
