How to mix seasoning
I am a newbie to making my own smoked cured link sausage. I just got my seasoning packets in the mail today from Walton’s . I was hoping there would be some specific instructions included with packets like you see on other seasoning such as ‘back country’.
My concern is on how to mix the cure and spices into the meat. I am comfortable with figuring out the correct amount of spices and cure per/lb. but I am confused on where the water comes in?
To make things simple I will tell you what I have. I have 1 pack of (1.4375 lb. pack of Roasted Garlic Smoked Sausage) and 1 pack of ( 1 oz. sure cure) which together should be enough for 25 lb of meat. I will be mixing 12.5 lb of venison and 12.5 lb of pork butt. My plan is to grind the venison and pork together and then in a meat mixer combine my spices and mix well. But no where can I find the best method for mixing it together and where the water comes in? Do I mix the spices and cure together and then add to water before adding to meat in the meat mixer? More specifically how much water for this ratio?
Do I add the spices cure and water together and then add to ground meat? Any suggestions are welcome.
