    Well to be honest my snack sticks are a packaged mix. I get them from Eldons jerky and sausage. Then I do some doctoring if I think it needs it. I added Garlic. white and ceyenne pepper to the spicy. They were a bit on the mild side for me to call them spicy. Got-em in the MES now smokin. Will have pics and updates later. Waitin on the sausage meat to chill before grinding and makin the Brats and Itailian.

    The snack sticks are in 19mm collagen.The Brats and Italian are in hog. My hogs were of different sizes. Some seemed to be 30mm some seemed to be up to 38mm.
