I love the brat seasonings. Great brats. But
… I’m a hard core jerky guy. Has anyone made jerky from the pizza brat seasoning? Or the new Hawaiian brat seasoning? I’m gonna try this, but any feed back on added salt or any other additives would be much appreciated.

I’ve been trying to cut back on sodium, so a lot of times I don’t add the cure to the mix. I always put my jerky in the fridge and a 5-10 pound batch is lucky to still be there after a week. One thing I do is take some of the meat, ground or whole muscle, and either cook it in the microwave or in a frying pan to get am idea of how it’s going to taste.
We’ll that was the first thing that came to mind the first batch i ever made. had a cold beer in hand and was sampling one and closed my eyes to savor the moment and the smoke aroma smelled just like i had a lit cigar in my mouth thus the term [meat cigars]
@Jonathon Was there another thread or topic that addressed glycerine and using a vacuum tumbler?
@doug7777 142 degrees is a stalling point where the fat starts to render. I used to get very impatient and start cranking up the heat to get the INT to go up. That usually results in burning all the fat out of the snack sticks. Be patient. The temp will eventually start to rise again. Once it does, it will continue to do so at a steady pace. I have had snack sticks in the smoker for 24 hours or better due to having 25lbs hanging at one time. I have also had 4-5 lbs at a time in the smoker only take 4-5 hours total.
