Helpful Hint#1 When to stuff casings....Snack sticks, pepper sticks, slim jims
Many of our customers have been experiencing difficulty stuffing smaller size casings, slim jims, snack sticks etc.
A few of you have destroyed your smaller stuffers by bending the frame or or ripping up the gears.
Most of you folks are mixing the seasonings and letting the product set for 12 to 36 hours for the seasonings to set. The longer it sets, the stronger the bind and it's very hard to stuff.
Another way, stuff your casings immediately after mixing all components and then let it set in the casings for your desired length of time in a cool place. Your seasonings will still set up nicely. Now ready for the smoker or oven.
Your stuffer will love it and you will too!!!!! It will be much easier to do the task...
