Hello everyone. I'm looking to make something different out of my next batch of snack sticks. I wanted to go more sweet and spicy with them, but I can't seem to find a suitable recipe. I don't want to add maple syrup to the ingredient list. I was thinking these ingredients to start. .25 % Cure #1 2% Salt .3 % Pepper .15 % Garlic Powder 1% Turbinado Sugar .2 % Cayenne .1 % Red Pepper Flakes The heat percentages are taken from my Andouille recipe so I know they'll workout. I might go a little lower initially and fry a taste test though. The 1 % sugar is what I use in my bacon to balance out the salt and I always like the salty sweetness of my bacon. Although that is used in a dry cure method, I'm not sure how much would be used in a sausage type setting.
