Do you use water when smoking snack sticks?
Personally, I have never used water while smoking any meats. I have not found it necessary. Get the correct ratio of fat in the sausage and add a little moisture to the spice/cure mix to get it to flow into the casing and you are good to go.
How do you keep snack sticks moist?
Sailor’s recommendation to use some non fat dry milk will help hold some moisture. But bear in mind that Sailor is using ground beef that has a 20% fat content. Checking other sticks recipes, most of them seem to target a fat content of around 15%.
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.

Smoke for about 30 minutes or until snacks sticks reach at least 165° internal temperature with a digital thermometer.

Should I use a water pan when smoking sausage?
The water pan seems to work against the goal of “drying” out the sausages for the first hour. All depends on how you like it. I use water pan when smoking sticks so the collagen casings dont get dry and brittle.but thats me.
What temperature should snack sticks be?
I start out low, around 145 to 150 degrees for an hour, then turn the temperature up to 170 degrees and continue to cook until the snack sticks reach an internal temperature of 150 degrees.
Are Slim Jims bad for you?
Slim Jims are a really unhealthy snack Basically, Slim Jims are not even a little bit healthy. The high sodium content and chemical preservatives make the meat sticks a pretty unhealthy snack.
Do venison snack sticks need to be refrigerated?
The slim Jims in the store are not refrigerated. If your going to use the LEM snack stick seasoning they will be moist. The cure in the LEM mix will allow them to be counter safe for 3 to 4 days. Dont store them in a zip lock bag, the sticks need to breath.
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 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.
How long do you dehydrate venison snack sticks?
Dehydrate snack sticks for 2 hours. Do not let snack sticks internal temperature rise above 160℉. Fill you sink with ice water, and then add snack sticks to ice water bath for 10 minutes. Pull out of water and let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes to allow them to dry off.
