My last few snack stick batches have not turned out as well as hoped. I had a bad fat out on one and the few just not the flavor I was looking for. I'm still a novice at sticks and have had great success and some really tragic events. So, this time, I'm going for just a straight premixed kit and nothing fancy like cheese or jalapeños in it. Yesterday afternoon, we mixed up a batch of Hi Mountain Cracked Perrer and Garlic Snack Stick mix with 5lbs of 80/20 beef. Then stuffed them and put them in the beer fridge overnight. This morning, i put them in the smoker. It'll be a good day to tend to these while I putter around the house on some projects. Time to winterized the boat and rake the leaves.
