    More snack sticks, this time Honey BBQ flavor 12.5 pounds sitting on the smoker since 6 AM.  Also made up a 12.5 pound batch of 7 pepper snack sticks for my dad. Those will be going on in the morning. 

    Just at the 16 hour mark and almost done.

    I started out at 110 for 2 or 3 hours to dry then bump to 140 and bump up 10 degrees every hour till it was at 180.  I have read others completing their smoke in like 8 hours or so. Every time I smoke sticks or summer sausage it takes like 16 hours or so. I have checked my smoker temps and it is accurate .   So guessing volume of meat?

    Hi,  I am using a kit from Owens Bbq.  Have made 7 pepper mix twice so far and have had many request to make more so far.  I love their meat rub called Tatonka Dust allot too.

    This is the other 12.5 pound batch I made for my dad. This one is 7 pepper again.

    I did find out my one probe was bad. Switched it out and see my MES40 is off by about 15-20 degrees.  So now I know why my smokes were taking so long.

    Sticks look good. Thats a long time for them to be in the smoker. MES is bad for off temps.
