    I was just reading a couple different recipes for snack sticks, and seen they were using pickling salt in their snack sticks - has anyone used this and does it give some kind of a tang or what? recipes looks good and I was going to give it a try. 

    here is the recipe

    Red Hot Snack Sticks
     

    4 1/2 lbs beef chuck (2.1 kg)
    1/2 lb fresh beef fat (227 g)
    2 1/2 tbsp pickling salt (48.7 g)
    1 tsp Prague Powder #1 (5.7 g)
    1 tsp dry mustard powder (2.3 g)
    1 tsp liquid smoke, optional (5 ml)
    1 1/4 tsp garlic powder (3.88 g)
    1 1/2 tsp coriander, ground (2.55 g)
    1 1/2 tbsp Ancho chili, ground (12.6 g)
    1 1/2 tbsp red pepper flakes (9.45 g)
    2 tbsp corn syrup solids (27.6 g)
    1 cup non-fat dry milk (94.6 g)*
    1 cup ice cold water (236 ml)
    22-24mm prepared sheep casing or 21mm smoked collagen casing

    A full smoker is a happy smoker

    Put kosher salt in food processor. Run food processor for 90 seconds. You now have pickling salt.

    Thanks Richie
