    Summary

    We have 2 brand new items to showcase this week. First off, we have what is called a Pork Puller. This handy little gadget attaches to most 3/8in drills and allow you to quickly and completely shred a pork butt into pulled pork in under 6 seconds. It’s a simply, yet must-have tool for anyone making lots of pulled pork, but not enough to justify the increased cost of a bowl cutter. Our second new item is the Stark 5 Gallon Bucket Liners for Marinating-Brining. These fit perfectly in most 5 gallon bucket and pails, plus our Food Storage Containers. It makes brining and marinating simple, easy, and reduces cleanup time. The Stark Bucket Liners are also great because you can easily tie the liner to remove all air and cover your meat.

    If you haven’t seen our Walton’s Flexible Cutting Mats before, these are an extremely inexpensive cutting board that is still super durable and a great asses to have in the kitchen. The larger 24x30 mats are also perfect for all your larger cutting jobs or for boning out larger pieces of meat.

    In our recipe section, we made Man Mix! In order to qualify as Man Mix, we needed to use our smoker to add some extra flare to a standard trail mix. We smoked pretzels and unsalted almonds with a touch of olive oil and then coated in seasonings like Smoked Seal Salt Seasoning Shaker, Cheddar Ranch Wing Shake, and Garlic Romano Wing Shake. The pretzels were a totally new idea we’ve never done before, but it was fantastic! We smoked them all at 200F for 1.5 hours and allowed to cool before adding to our Man Mix. Lastly, we of course had to add jerky to the Man Mix, and we used our Excalibur Pepper and Garlic Jerky Seasoning. The Man Mix was amazing and quite the delicious treat!

    Finally, for this week’s Meat Hacks, we quickly discussed fat content in sausages. We prefer to use a 70% lean to 30% fat ratio for best results. Some sausages you can get away with something higher in fat like 60/40, or lower at 80/20, but when we are asked we always start with 70/30. Some people like to make a leaner sausage, even 90/10 or less fat, and while you can make extremely lean sausage, you will have a harder time maintaining a flavorful, moist, and appealing product without enough fat. Sausage stuffing is also much more difficult if you don’t use enough fat (and water) in your sausage. Remember, fat equals flavor!

  • @KSHusker First, yes they should be safe to eat. You cooked them to 160° which will kill anything harmful. Now, obviously use common sense and your senses, if it smells bad don’t eat it!

    The first thing to know is if you used sure cure (or another version) or not? From the sounds of it, you did but I just want to make sure we are looking at all possibilities. Were the butts untrimmed? If they had a nice fat cap on them then you should have been okay, I still like to use a little more fat than that but you should have been in the realm. How did you mix it, was it by hand? If you mixed for 30 minutes in a meat mixer that is a long time to be mixing it (I don’t think this was your issue, just pointing it out). Starting at 200 is a little high but it also sounds like it came down to 180° pretty quickly but this would be my thought on why the casing stuck, cooking too high can cause this.

    For the color, the only thing I can think of (if you used a cure) is that it looks pinker around the edges because you got a nice smoke ring around it? How deep does the nice pink color go and what type of casing did you use? With wild game, I always use some sort of cure accelerator, either Encapsulated Citric Acid, Smoked Meat Stabilizer or something, it helps burn the color more and then you can skip holding it overnight and go right from stuffing to the smokehouse.

    Anyone else have thoughts?
