Beef stick(slim jim)

I tried my hand at making some beef stick today. Everything was going good tell I start to get the stuffer set up I cleaned it and was trying to put on the 19mm collagen casing and found I did not have the right size stuffing tube so I went to plan B and I use my jerk gun and the small size stuffing tube use to make beef stick with out casing. The collagen fit on but I could only get about 3 or 4 feet of casing on. The work was slow going but it work. I made 5 pound of beef stick I will be smoking them tomorrow.

This is what used to make the beef stick.


This a 6lb chuck roast.


Hear it is all cut up for the grinder.


Hear they are ready for the smokehouse.

Hear it is all is almost done and it taste very hot I can’t wait tell they cool down and see if the sausage taste any better. The taste was good I would add a little bit of heat next time.

I ran in to a little bit of rain Smoker handled it very well.


Hear they are done and laid out to air dry and come to room temp before I package them up.
