Cutting snack sticks



  • Anyone come up with a idea to cut snack sticks, instead of individually.

    @dubsmeats A knife that would cut across multiple rows is the easiest way that I have found. Set them up in rows of 5, get your longest sharp knife and just cut them across the entire row of 5.

    Anyone have a better idea? Looking at our big processors like @raider2119 and @Parksider



  • @dubsmeats We make our our sticks in approx 100# batches. Kitchen shears! We set up a jig, kind of.

    First we cut the curley ends off. Make two lines on packing paper of the desired length and shear away. We are experimenting with something like a paper cutter this year but haven’t perfected it yet. When we get going this year I’ll post some pictures.

    I was thinking about a paper cutter…let us know how that works. We cut the ends off and package them up, the guys love the small bites-we call them nubs. I usually just use blue tape on a cutting board and line them up. Key is to have lots of help! We use the 6"x10" bags for 6 sticks. I like using the zip lock chamber vac bags but they can get pricey compared to regular bags.

    I’d say 30-45 days still isn’t too long. I wouldn’t go much past 45 though.
    As long as it is still in the original vacuum packaging, and the packaging doesn’t start to expand (gas released from the meat), you should be fine wet aging for quite some time. When you open the package, you should notice pretty quickly if it sat too long and spoiled. The odor will be quite foul and noticeable. So, I’d shoot for the 30-45 day mark, and you should be good with that.
