First time snack sticks. Made them out of 100% venison nothing else but the seasoning and the cure. Mixed up and let cure 2 days. Stuffed them and let dry overnight. Did a test batch in the oven last night at 200* till they reached 160* no ice bath just let cool down in the oven. Took 8 hours to reach 160*. They turned out great. Used 19mm casings and my tube was to short so it took awhile to get them all stuffed..The batch was 5lbs. I will do the rest in the smoker using hickory chips.
