    Hey buddy.

    Glad to see ya here on this forum to. Like the other forum there are lots of good members here and a wide range of smokers, grills, pits.

    I am going to do some Elk sticks this week sometime.
     
  6. Thanks, The recipe I am using for Slim Jims I have all the ingrediants except Amesphos and citric acid which I plan on just leaving out, I think I remember you said you can use "Tang" for a citric acid substitute once, is that right?

    MMMmmmm Elk sticks sound great!!

    The Amesphos will keep the Jims moist. The CA in regular powder form is very difficult to work with because it starts to work right away and can make the meat dry, turn white and crumbly. You have to know the exact amount to use. ECA is much easier or if you want some tang just use buttermilk in place of the water. I have that on the other forum.
