    Weekly Blog Post - LiveStreaming & Meatgistics University!

    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?

    Austin and I are going to be doing a little mid-month giveaway on a Livestream! We are aiming for Monday, October 22nd right now, this Livestream will include a giveaway, some steep discount codes for a few lucky customers, some free merchandise for everyone and a coupon code for everyone who watches! We will also be using this video to introduce Meatgistics University and to answer any of your questions and talk about a few recent customer questions on the community section of Meatgistics.

    What Projects are we looking ahead at?

    The introductory classes for Meatgistics University are all shot and being edited now, so we are going to start in on the more advanced videos. These videos will focus more on the science behind meat processing as well as some advanced techniques and tips for making the best homemade products!

    What’s on our Mind?

    Has anyone tried retired dairy cow? I saw something a few weeks ago that said that retired dairy cows had a similar flavor and even texture to Wagyu beef. They had to be cooked a little differently and it was dependant on the Dairy Cows being grass-fed only for the last 6 months but this is incredibly interesting to me! I am going to try to source some retired dairy cow meat and compare it to some Wagyu.

    New Products

    Tubed Hog Casings 35-38mm and Tubed Hog Casings 38-42mm will be back in stock shortly! This is great for anyone wanting to make larger diameter sausages out of natural casings. Tubed Casings can be a big time saver as they are easier to clean and load onto your stuffer.

    I believe the recommended curing time is 12 hours but can I go less than that? I was expecting my order to be here tonight and it won’t be here till tomorrow morning now.

    I was going to mix up my batch of jerky tonight but will have to do it tomorrow on my lunch break. Just wondering if tomorrow evening would be long enough to let the meat cure.

    Thanks,

    Weston

    Your recipe calls for 1. Sure Cure, 2. Sure Gel Meat Binder, and 3. Smoked Meat Stabilizer. I have all but the Sure Gel Meat Binder. Can I get by without using this? Second question- Is Excalibur’s Cure Excellerator the same as Sure Cure?

  • @andyman Great question, Carrot Fiber holds up to 26 times its weight in water, and while the 80 oz is still well inside that I have never done that before. I max out (even with Carrot Fiber) at 64 oz which is 2 qts. My only fear with doing 80 is that it might take a lot longer to cook as it will have more water content that will be trying to evaporate. Most of that water should be bound up in the carrot fiber though so it wouldn’t really be available to be cooked out. Hmmm, my recommendation, to be safe is to stick with 64 oz of water.

    Now, as to should you add more seasoning, some people will taste the difference if you did not add additional seasonings and some (most) will not. Your water and your seasoning is technically part of your meat block (anyone who is reading this who doesn’t consider this don’t worry!) so adjusting your meat block to include your water is sometimes done. If you do decide to add more spices or seasonings I would add aromatics and things like Rosemary and Basil, don’t add more salt as that is formulated specifically for the meat block.

    Hope this helps and if you do decide to go with 80 oz of water then I would be very interested in the results!

    @jonathon I enjoyed this line of questions and comments, it made me think. Here is my related question: Assume I use 25 lbs. of meat to make summer sausage and add one package, 4 oz., of Carrot Fiber and 80 oz. of water. The ratio is 20 times the weight of water to the weight of CF. In other words, I am adding 5 lbs. 4 oz. of water/CF paste to my meat dough. Should I adjust the amount of salt and spices, I add to the dough? I am concerned that the flavor will be weaker if I don’t add spices for the new total, 30 lbs. curious as to what y’all thinking.
