Summer Sausage and Snack Sticks
 
Decided to give Summer Sausage a try figuring the Sausage would be good for appetizers during Christmas and the Sticks would be nice to munch on while driving.
Summer Sausage was a 50/50 blend of lean beef and pork shoulder. The Sticks ended up about 60/40, just how it worked out.
10# batches of each which were further split into 4 batches,
5# Sausage straight seasoning
5# Sausage seasoning plus hi temp cheese and dried jalapeņo
5# Sticks straight seasoning
5# Sticks seasoning plus dried jalapeņo and a TBLS of Smitty's
Gives me a nice baseline for future batches.
Fibrous casings for the Summer Sausage, collagen for the Sticks. Sausage got smoke and heat in the MES40 for 4 hours then took an hour bath in the SV at 152. Sticks went full term in the MES40 until IT of 152 was hit.
Necessity is the mother of all invention and with only 4 racks, I had to get creative and add 2 additional racks. And it gave me an excuse to drink a few beers. During the initial grind and stuffing session, I cold smoked some cheese to go along with the Sausage and Sticks. Multitasking at its finest.

When you do you can place an comment in the reputation box.. You have to click on the scales http://www.smoked-meat.com/forum/ima...reputation.gif that are in the gray tool bar of each post.. We you get points or reputation your green pips add up and then turn to different color stars on the right side of your posts..

Thanks, I'm usually on Tapatalk and don't see it on here. I'll have to pull my laptop out and look at it on there.

One of the cans I used to make the second tier was from a double IPA. Beer went into a glass and can into the smoker. Everybody wins
