8 Oz. Bag will season 100 lbs. of meat.  [1 oz. (2 tablespoons) will season 12½ lbs. of meat]
Add to water/seasoning mix to add a smoke flavor.  No MSG  When used in a ground product or pumped into a brined product the hickory flavor is dispersed through out the meat, not just on the surface.  This allows you to have the option of smoking your product for added flavor or just cooking it and still getting the delicate smoke flavor of Pure Hickory!
There is NO mess or staining like you get when using liquid smoke.

 

(The AC Legg Dry Smoke Flavor Seasoning has a tendency to cake and get hard.  It is still good.  Just tap the bag a few times on a hard surface to break it up. 
Or you can empty the bag into a bowl and break up the hard pieces by hand)

From Newly Weds Foods (Formerly F.W. Witt Seasonings).
4 oz. Bag does 100 lbs. of meat.  Must be used exactly as specified.  1 oz. per 25 lbs. of meat.

Ingredients:  Salt, Sodium Nitrite (6.25%), Dextrose, Red 3 (0.0018%) and less than 1% glycerine added to prevent caking
This is NOT a 4 oz. bag of pure sodium nitrite!
We do not carry pure sodium nitrite.

The primary and most important reason that meat is cured is to prevent BOTULISM POISONING. In simpler terms, food poisoning. It is of extreme importance that any kinds of meat or sausage that will be cooked and smoked at low temperature MUST be cured. To trigger botulism poisoning, the requirements are quite simple - lack of oxygen, moisture, and temperatures in range of 40-140° F. When smoking meats, the heat and smoke eliminates the oxygen. The meats have moisture and are traditionally smoked and cooked in the low ranges of 90 to 160° F.
As you can see, these are ideal conditions for food poisoning if you don't use cures.

 To be used with Beef and Deer Jerky and any Smoked Sausage!

Encapsulated Citric Acid
3 oz. Bag Correctly Seasons 25 Lbs. of Meat - ONLY $12.97 -
Shipped FREE via USPS Mail

Add 3 oz. Citric Acid per 25 lbs. of Snack Stick Meat Mixture AFTER your final ground.  Adds that "tangy" flavor to your Snack Sticks.  (Do not run Citric through your grinder!)

This is a must if you like the flavor of Slim Jims for your Snack Sticks®!

This citric acid is coated with hydrogenated vegetable oil which will melt and release into the meat product at 135 degrees F.

Used to give certain products such as summer sausage and snack sticks their distinctive tang without going through a lengthy fermentation cycle.

Suggested usage for this purpose is 3 oz. for 25 lb. of meat. Encapsulated citric acid should be added near the end of the processing cycle as not to rupture the capsules during the mixing cycle. During processing the encapsulated citric acid is inactive until the temperature reaches 135 degrees F. and then the capsule is melted releasing the citric acid into the product.

Once released a decrease in pH is achieved resulting in the distinctive "tang" associated with reduced pH products.

How To Use Marinades Guide

A marinade is a seasoned mixture that adds flavor and in some cases tenderizes. Marinades are commonly used with thin cuts, such as steaks.

A flavoring marinade is used with tender beef cuts for a short time - 15 minutes to 2 hours.

A tenderizing marinade is used with less tender beef cuts - usually from the chuck, round, flank and skirt.

A tenderizing marinade contains a food acid or a tenderizing enzyme.

Acidic ingredients include lemon or lime juice, vinegar, Italian dressing, salsa, yogurt and wine.

Tenderizing enzymes are present in fresh ginger, pineapple, papaya, kiwi and figs.

Less tender steaks should be marinated at least 6 hours, by no more than 24 hours. Longer than 24 hours will result in a mushy texture.

Tenderizing marinades penetrate about  ¼ inch into the meat.

Marinate in a food-safe plastic bag or a non-reactive glass or stainless steel container.

Turn steaks or stir beef strips occasionally to allow even exposure to to the marinade.

Allow  ¼ to  ½ cup of marinade for each 1 to 2 pounds of beef.

ALWAYS marinate in the refrigerator. NEVER at room temperature.

If a marinade will be used later for basting, or served as a sauce, reserve a portion of it before adding the raw beef. Marinade that has been in contact with uncooked meat  MUST be brought to a full rolling boil before it can be used as a sauce.

NEVER save and reuse a marinade.

Which Cuts to Choose?

Tender beef cuts can be marinated for only 15 minutes or up to 2 hours to add flavor. These include:

 Porterhouse/T-Bone steaks, top loin steaks , tenderloin steaks (filet mignon), ribeye steaks, rib steaks, top sirloin steaks, chuck eye  steaks and chuck top blade steaks.


Less tender cuts should be marinated for at least 6 hours or as long as overnight in a mixture containing a food acid or tenderizing enzyme.  These include:

 Flank steaks, skirt steak, sirloin tip steak, round steaks and chuck shoulder steaks.
