    Looking to try a new mix and a few folks said to try Leggs #116. Just looking to see if it's good bad or otherwise before I try it. Thanks for any info.

    Meat ready for seasonings...


    Leggs #116 with 1/2 cup of Octoberfest mixed in


    Stuffed and ready to hang out in the fridge overnight


    Hanging out in the ice bath after pulling them at 152 degrees, with hickory smoke...


    Out of the ice bath & hung to bloom....


    Here's the money shot.......

    I have used it many times. It is one of my "go to" mixes for sticks.

    Do you use it as is or do you add anything else to it? I usually always add black pepper to pre-mixes.

    When the local smoke house closed up about 8 years ago, the owner (after a few beers) gave up some of his secrets.......one being the Leggs #116. He would ask his customers if they wanted extra goodies added......peppers, garlic, mustard seed, cheese......and a few other things I don't remember right now. But he always used that spice blend and I like it a lot. I even use it like a summer sausage and stuff in 38mm casings (right size for a Ritz Cracker). I have added all kinds of "extras" to the mix and it is always good.

    I have used it with a venison/pork blend........beef/pork........or just pork. May I suggest just a small batch with just the #116 and see what you would like to add.

    Hope this helps.....

    Haven't tried the Leggs #116 yet but have heard good things about that blend. I've recently gotten some mixes from PS Seasoning that are outstanding as well.
