How long do you cook snack sticks in the oven?
Preheat oven to 200°F. Place sticks in oven and dry for 1 hour and 15 minutes on each side or until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
Do deer snack sticks need to be cooked?
Cook or smoke the sticks at 200 degrees until they reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Overheating will cause the fat to render out and leave the sticks with a dry texture. Smoke the sticks at 200 until they reach 165 degrees in the center.
Can you make snack sticks without casings?
For snack sticks without casings, use little or no fat trim. The cook process is identical to making jerky, hence much of the fat will render out. ** Cure Instructions: Dissolve cure into cool water per chart above prior to mixing into meat. Cured sausage will have a pinkish color after cooking.

Can I use jerky seasoning for snack sticks?
@retired-railroader Yes, you can absolutely use Jerky Seasoning to make Snack Sticks and vice versa, many people do this! If you use a seasoning that is made for snack sticks, summer sausage or brats it might give a slightly stronger taste in jerky so if you want to back it off a little that’s fine.
Can you dehydrate snack sticks?
The snack sticks need to stay in the dehydrator until the internal temperature is at least 155 degrees Fahrenheit. For them to reach the texture of a snack stick instead of a sausage, they really need to be left in for a long time. I leave mine in for at least 8-10 hours, sometimes as many as 12.
How much fat do you put in venison snack sticks?
30% x 20% = 6% of the total sausage + 70% venison that is ~5% is 3.5% so you will have 9.5% fat. a lot of people swear by 70/30 venison to pork butt and some people like 90/10 ratio for snack sticks so this might be subjective, but i like a minimum of 20% fat.
Can you twist collagen casings?
Collagen casings can be twist linked, but it is more difficult than natural casings. If you twist less than twice, it may not be enough to hold the link in place, and if you twist more, the increased pressure in the meat and on the casing can cause breakage.
