November Giveaway & Sales and Octopus!
Weekly Blog Post - November Giveaway & Sales and Octopus!
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?
Will it BBQ? Octopus! - This should be ready for release in just a few days, just like our Squid Video we will have a short and long version of it as close to 10 minutes of Austin and I trying Octopus might not be what everyone wants to see but there are some funny/interesting moments in what ended up on the cutting room floor.
November Giveaway & Sales - We have the November Giveaway & Sales shot and ready to go live on the first of the month. November is our big sale month, we have the normal November Sales, then we have the Pre-Thanksgiving Sale and then our Huge “ThanksBlackMonday” Sale Video where we announce our Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. This video is almost always a “funny” one from us and I think we have some great ideas for this years so keep an eye out for that!
What Projects are we looking ahead at?
We are working on finishing up the introductory Specialty Sausage section of Meaygistics University. It will be a 101 - What Is Specialty Sausage and then we will be making Lebanon Bologna, Landjaeger and Blood Sausage! The Blood Sausage might be a little later than the others as we are having a little trouble with sourcing what we want for ingredients but it shouldn’t be too long!
What’s on our Mind?
Thanksgiving is right around the corner and that means remembering everything we are thankful for and one thing I am always thankful for is our awesome servicemen and woman. Steak for Troops is a program that the All-American Beef Battalion organizes that provides troops, who are going to and coming back from a deployment, with a tasty steak dinner. Check out their website HERE or you can help support them by buying some of their awesome Superior Steak Seasoning, when you buy a bottle of this we donate a portion of the proceeds to this worthy cause!
Pro-Cut #12 KG-12-SS Meat Grinder is a brand new grinder from Pro-cut that features a stainless steel construction, a 3/4 hp motor, an oil-bathed steel gear transmission uses no belts or pulley. This is a great grinder for anyone looking for a home processing grinder that will last long enough to pass down to your children. Don’t let the fact that this is a #12 fool you either, Pro-Cut specializes in commercial level equipment so this thing will grind through your deer, hog, elk or anything in no time!
@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.
