I started using this to make little pepperoni snack sticks for my kids. They love them. They have pretty much taken the place of store bought snacks at my house. the kids would rather eat the hog pepperoni. Awesome deer stand snacks, by the way.
This is the best pepperoni mix I have ever used

im a longtime lem product owner and user..allways been very pleased with your products but.....I just tried your peperoni seasoning for the 1st time and what a let down...not sure what happened but I certainly wouldn't call it spicey it seems more like a summer sausage and im most certain there was no paprika at all in the mix..no color change what so ever..love your products and equipment but ill not buy this one again
The pork shoulder comes on sale once in a while. I bought 25 pounds to try this seasoning. I measured 5 pounds and added the cure and seasoning to the water, mixed and combined thoroughly. I also added some chilli flakes and some fennel seeds. With the oven at 180, the meat was stuffed in 2 1/2" collagen casings. It took about 4 hours, you have to turn the sausage once in a while or the color will not be even. I then let it cool on the counter for 30 minutes and then in the fridge for 2 hours. Tasting the sausage that day, I thought it was a bit harsh, very salty but good. The next day I took it out, cut myself a few slices and it was much better, it had mellowed out, a good pepperoni taste and the texture was perfect.
