did a 12 lb batch of snack stix today turned out awsome.i used a mix from curlys sausage called codyssnack sticks .they were a little plain for my taste but they had an option with the directions of adding garlic and red pepper flakes did that and 1/4 cup tabasco turned out perfect. just the way i like a bead of sweat after 2 sticks. the pics are as follows,my right meat mixer,the stuffer,and in the smoke vault. notice the thin blue smoke in the last one. hint hint . the bummer part is the pics of the finished product didnt store on my phone cant wait till the wife opens her new digital at x mas .lol. later bill. p.s it was only 14 deg today and had to blow 8'' snow this morn, but the smoke vault worked great!
