Can you make snack sticks in a dehydrator?
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.
What kind of meat do you use for snack sticks?
Snack sticks can be made from just about any type of meat, from beef, pork, chicken, other poultry, wild game, or a combination of meats. Walton’s recommends using a lean to fat ratio of at least 80/20, and many times a 30% fat ratio, with a maximum of 40% fat.
What is the best way to make venison snack sticks?

What is the best casing for snack sticks?

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!
