Its a beautiful smokin kind of day, first time using the tubed natural hog casings and making brats. Im liking em. 50% venison 40% beef 10% pork fat
From a poor given smoke schedule from a different company resulted in alot of fatout to finished cooked product. Great garlic flavor with a peppery bite. Moisture is great!! 75% venison 25% pork fat. Finer grind than expected so next time i will just coarse grind.
Anyone else get anxiety when processing or smoking. You want everything to go smooth and perfect but yet run into snags in the process? Cant find this or cant find that, other family members in your way, didnt have what you needed that you thought you did, smoking schedule going faster or slower than what you had planned, doesnt taste like you expected, here is a big one, cooking for a wedding, graduation, or other public party? Will you get it done on time? Will they like it or is it too salty? The stress we put on ourselves are endless
Jonathon well as i thought it was a good idea i ordered and shipped tuesday in the cooler with ice gel packs and arrived at my house today and low and behold these casing smell just as bad. This was my 3rd set. 1st set was not that strong in oder. Not sure if these casing are not selling off the shelf as fast as the 32-35mm or other sizes or what the issue could be. I am nervous to use them. Maybe they are not getting flushed well enough before putting them on the pretubing. Not sure who does this for your company.
So i just ordered another batch of the 35mm-38mm natural hog casings. I then called customer service and asked if they could possibly ship them in the styrofoam coolers with ice packs like they do for high temp cheese. They were able to do my request with a small fee. It will be well worth it if they stay stable throughout the shipping process. Perhaps they could possibly put it on the shopping cart menu as an option for shipping such items? Austin Jonathon
Mschmidt i dont want to get you in a state of confusion on what flavors to get, however the flavors i haven’t seen that my buyers are raving about are apple with hi temp cheddar cheese added and philly cheesesteak that i have diced up onion, green pepper, red pepper then sauteed them and added to my meat block.
