glen I would second this. We make several no sugar products in our plant and i would say this should be fine.
Andrew B. I would run with the current salt content. If its good 5lbs will be gone quick and if its not well its only 5lbs and the next batch can be tweaked!
Small batch cure/eca amounts
Austin, I found the seasoning chart for 1 & 5lb. But what about the other ingredients such as cure and eca for a 5lb batch. Any help is appreciated.
We will work on getting an additives chart made soon…
The cure and seasoning charts exist in the section: Walton’s Learning Center > Seasonings…
Hopefully that helps some! Let me know if you need anything else!
I was just up at the store. Wish you guys stayed open on the west side. So my next question is for 5lbs does 12.8 oz of water sound correct.
What product are you making?
snack sticks-- buffalo bleu cheese. 5lbs First time
Yes, that would be correct.
Typically we recommend 1 or 2 quarts of water per 25 lb of meat for snack sticks.
Thus, 6.4 to 12.8 ounces of water for a 5 lb batch would be perfect!
