Homemade Snack Sticks with Weston Jerky Tonic

Our Sweet & Spicy Jerky Tonic also just so happens to make for a mean Snack Stick! With a Weston Grinder, Stuffer, and Smoker we made homemade Slim Jims unlike any other we've ever tasted.
- Ingredients - 
2 lbs beef, trimmed completely of fat and cubed
1/2 cup Weston Sweet & Spicy Jerky Tonic
2 tablespoons non-fat dry milk powder

- Tools - 
Weston Meat Grinder
Weston Sausage Stuffer
Weston 19mm Collagen Casings
Weston Smoker with sausage hooks
Hickory Wood Chips

Use a Weston Meat Grinder to grind beef once through a coarse grinding plate, then a second time through a finer plate.

Mix Jerky Tonic and milk powder into the ground beef.

Preheat your Weston Smoker to 200 degrees F. Soak wood chips for at least a half hour prior to smoking.

Attach a 19mm funnel to your Weston Sausage Stuffer.  Thread your casing onto the funnel and fill the canister with meat. Turn the handle just until the meat begins to exit the funnel. Push the air out of the casing and tie a knot in the end. Turn the handle, filling the casing, until you have used all of the ground meat.

Fill the water bowl of your smoker and pour the wood chips into the smoke box. String your snack stick link across the Smoker's sausage hooks. Smoke for about 5 hours, or until the internal temperature of the meat is 155 and the meat sticks are dry and firm.

Remove from the smoker, allow to cool, then refrigerate overnight. Cut your link into snack sticks and enjoy!
