Another Livestream and ThanksBlackMonday!
Weekly Blog Post - Another Livestream and ThanksBlackMonday!
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?
ThanksBlackMonday Livestream! - Jon and I will be doing a very long Livestream this Monday (Monday the 26th at 12pm CST), also known as Cyber Monday! We will be answering questions from users and announcing some special sales that are not in our ThanksBlackMonday video. A lot of these sales will be “Flash Sales” so we will either announce how many we are putting on sale and once that quantity has been sold it will end, or we will be putting items on sale for a certain amount of time! Some of these sales will be significant so make sure you tune in on Monday! We will have a link to the video on the waltonsinc.com main page to make it easy to navigate to.
What Projects are we looking ahead at?
We will be working on the more advanced videos of the Meatgistics University section after Thanksgiving. We are going to try to start releasing these at a rate of at least once a week so we can keep new information up there for you guys!
What’s on our Mind?
We hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you get to visit with family, friends and loved ones and enjoy the day!
While the Chocolate Chili Bratwurst Seasoning is not exactly new it is a newer seasoning and it does not get the attention it deserves! With pork has a taste that is very similar to a Mexican Mole Sauce! If you are looking to try something new around the Holidays give this stuff a chance!

@papasop I have a response from the manufacturer…
They said that they designed the mixer in a way that it would not need to run in reverse for a long time. It should mix efficiently enough in one direction and it was designed to mix in just 1 direction. So, using the grinder in any scenario (grinding or mixing) you should limit the reverse time to approximately 5 seconds at one time.
My own opinion on the mixing is that I wouldn’t mix in just 1 direction though. I think there is still a benefit to going in reverse, even if temporarily, so I think my course of action for the future will probably be to mix 90% of the time in 1 direction, but still do the reverse in the 5 second interval. Probably something like 30 to 60 seconds forward, 5 seconds backward, then another 30 to 60 forward, etc… I think that would get enough benefit of a direction mix cycle, but still limit the reverse action as much as possible.
@jonathon Moscow Mules!! I’m sold. Will It BBQ is on the way soon for sure!
@alan Lol, I’m an idiot, just the other day I said that I am fully capable of thinking one thing and typing something else! Getting information from an old timer is usually a great way to go! Glad you got it worked out though! Send pictures of them!
@Danbow Back when I was in customer service I know I talked to someone who either said his wife did it exactly how you are explaining it or I talked to the woman who did it, I wonder if I was talking to either you or your wife?!
Wrapping it in foil would keep more moisture in the product, same basic process that some people do when they are smoking ribs. I can absolutely see how this would work and I think the way she is doing it, without a casing, would be more effective when wrapping it in foil. I don’t think you’ll ever convert me from using a casing but we might be making some updates here and when we do I might have access to an oven and will give this a try!
Lol, no rice in Andoullie. You are thinking of Boudin.
I spoke to an Old Timer Cajun down here and he said, after you cure your meat for 24 hours, spray and moisten the meat just before stuffing it. If the stuffing is too dry, the meat will shrink when smoked and it will make voids between the stuffing and casing.
The recipe I use is hundred plus years ago and I added some modern safeguards and seasonings. By the way, I use Boston Butt & Cushion Meat, in lieu of the hogs head and neck.
The Smoke Houses are selling it for over $10 a pound here and I can make it for $1.30.
LaPlace, LA is, The Andoullie Capital of the World!
@jonathon Thank you for your quick and detailed response. It is greatly appreciated. Just another reason why Walton’s is the best. For some reason, I thought that you needed to soak the collagen before loading it on the stuffing horn. Thanks for the correction there.
