Labradorbob I have posted this a few times but the Honey BBQ is one I don’t actually care for but everyone else really liked. I used ECA both times I made it (2nd time just to see if I was crazy) I felt the same both times but everyone else liked it again, so I am the odd one. I’d be interested in your thoughts though
Snack stick question!
I am going to be making a 10 pound batch of pepper stick snack sticks how much water do I add for easier stuffing. or is the water that I mix the sure gel in enough for the batch is there a ratio for sure jell to water?
I have only made about three batches of snack sticks so far but, I have found that adding an extra ounce of water ( per 5lb batch) over what is called for in the recipe, makes the meat “flow just a little easier when stuffing into casings.
So far, the texture of the finished product has been great and I have had no problem with casings breaking etc. from the excess moisture.
MikesMeats A ratio of 2 qts to 25 lb of meat will make stuffing a lot easier. The first time I used that much water I was concerned that I had measured something incorrectly because it was almost soupy but in the end, it stuffed wonderfully and the finished product had a good consistency!
