    Newbie here so please forgive my ignorance. I first posted my snack stick adventure today in the MES forum. A SmokingMeat forum member was kind enough to mention I would get more views if it was posted in the sausage forum. So not knowing how to move my original post I figured I would just post the below link to it. I hope you find it enjoyable. Thanks

    Gary thanks for looking. While this was my 1st time using the MES I have been cooking on Big Green Eggs for the last 11 years. I bought the MES just so I can make my sausage, jerky and bacon year round instead of just in the colder months. Trying to keep a Big Green Egg between 140-180 degrees is a real pain. It's possible but a rain pain.
     
  7. Yeah, I see the watt burners have a lot easier time, but so for on my bacon,Canadian bacon, and Butt bacon I have been able to maintain low temps pretty easy with my RF,  I'll no more when I start doing sausage

  12. awesome looking sticks... i need to get the smaller tube i think to do those. what mm was the colagen cases? I'm wondering if the 11/16" OD tube I have would support that or should I get the smaller tube.

    Thanks for the compliment on the snack sticks. The collegen casings were 21mm and the stuffing tube I used was a 3/8 ID diameter. This is the tube I use.
