Clarko said in MILD snack sticks:
Has anyone increased the amount of meat to seasoning with the Willies to tone them down?
To your question about just using less spice (adding more meat) to tone down the heat.
Yes, it is possible to do that, but remember, there will be relatively less salt and other seasonings if you do that. The stick will have less heat, but it may also taste kind of bland without as much salt.
IF you happen to find a seasoning that is too salty AND too spicy for your taste, then go for it and add less.
Remember to still use the recommend quantity of Cure #1 for the weight of your meat block.
As the guys mentioned , you may find another seasoning you like better and eliminate the need to make adjustments.
