Hey everyone. Looking for some support on what to do about my casings on my snack sticks. I've been working on a basic recipe and technique for awhile. After many MANY failed atempts I'm getting very close to an awesome finished product. I'm following the basic steps for smoking the sticks. I let them in my smoker at 120 for 1.5 hours to let the casings dry out then bump up the temp about 10 degrees each hour until I reach the desired internal temp. This batch I did half with an ice bath directly out of the smoker the other half I let sit out until completely cooled. After that I placed them all in a brown paper bag over night. This is as close to perfect as I have gotten however the casings are sort of like tearing very thin paper. The snap is good but it seems to more rip than anything. Did I dry out the casings at 120 for too long? Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
