    Thanks for the recipe Bear!  Made these a couple of times now, but I really need to get myself an amazn smoker!  Going for my first shot with a little wine instead of water and about a 50/50 mix of pork shoulder and lean beef, got it all sitting in the fridge right now, will be shaping those bad boys in the morning!

    This was one of the first recipes that I made back when I was a lurker before I joined up! It's probably my boys most requested smoked food that I make. It sure is great!
  10. Good Evening Bear, I will be using your recipe in the very near future. Yours sound and look awesome.

    Kinda funny, I have been working at developing my own recipe from my off the shelf seasonings. In doing this, I have been planning to use my jerky canon and extrude the stix into casingless snack stix. So far I have made pretty close to 400 pounds of pepperoni snack stix but I have always used coligon casings, I use a Dakotah water stuffer and the meat that is left after the stuffer stuffs all it will stuff, I usually do what you have done, I take the left over meat, roll it into a roll and then smoke it on a rack when I hang and smoke my stuffed stix.

    I certainly will give your recipe a try.

    Thank You Sailor!!!

    Gotta keep them boys Happy!!!  Glad they like them.

    Hi Rich!!! You'll love this recipe!!

    However these are very mild. If you like a little heat, use the ingredient amounts in my "Bear Loaf", instead of this one. I'm not big on a lot of heat, but the heat of the Bear Loaf is just right. The "Smoked Bear Loaf" is also in my signature.

  12. Morning Bear, Just a thought and a question, How do you think this recipe would be with just adding a little cayenne pepper to give it a tad bit of heat?

    I'm away from home untill tomorrow for grand daughters graduation, but do plan to give ypour recipe a shot next week, I think I will do 2 small batch's and make 1 just as your recipe is and 1 with just a little cayenne.

    I will post my results and efferts at that time.

    This one (below) is perfect---flavor & heat------Not too hot & not too mild.

    Made for 7 pounds of Ground Beef, but that can easily be adjusted.

    This can be turned into sticks or logs too.



  14. Now wouldn't my 5 x 8 AMNPS work? [​IMG] Just wondering [​IMG]

    bearcarver Smoking Guru OTBS Member

    Sure would !!

    I made this before there was such a thing as an AMNPS.

    The AMNS was Todd's first little miracle!!

  17. T Q stands for Morton Tender Quick.
    Its a cure & Salt all in the bag.

    Sorry I wasn't here, but Rich got you.

    TQ is a cure mix, made to be easy for people who cure & smoke at home.

    I used this and another posts of Bearcarver to make snack sticks. They were terrific. The reason I combined the two posts is I liked the idea of a hotter snack stick but liked the slow smoking of this thread for texture. Thanks for the help, Bear.
