    @kstrantz No. Seasonings meant for cured sausage will include a package of Sure Cure, but it does not include any other additives. If you want to use a binder, taste booster, ECA, or something else, those then need to be purchased separately.

    @kstrantz If you look at our meatgistics articles for a specific product we usually have links to all the additives we used in that video. Let us know if you have any questions on how to use an additive or when to use one!

    One of the reasons it is not added in is that it would then need to be used and you would not have the option of using something else, or nothing at all. It is the same reason the cure is not added directly to the seasoning before packaging. This way you can make a bratwurst out of a seasoning that is designed to be used to make a summer sausage!

  • @PapaSop these look very tasty. Ever tried wet brining for a few hours for more moisture? Sure, blame it on the adult beverages.

    I just finished 25 lbs of Jalapeño Summer Sausage and snack sticks. I used my new 44lb meat mixer from Weston. The mixer worked great. The only downside to it is that it is not easy to clean. The mixer is only welded on the outside, so strands of meat tend to get stuck in the corners.
    I also tried sodium phosphate for the first time instead of protein powder. Only needed 1/4 cup vs. 2-1/2 cups of protein powder. Flavor and texture was still excellent.
