Smoking Venison snack sticks
« on: January 19, 2017, 08:18:23 PM »
I have never smoked venison snack sticks and was curious if anyone has suggestions on what type of wood chips work best? Thanks Rick!

Check the venison section here.  I am sure you will find your answer:

Rick, I prefer to use hickory when I smoke venison snack sticks. If you do a search in this forum for "Snack Sticks" you will find a wide variety of information on this topic. Pay attention to anything posted by NDKoze (aka Gregg) or Porkbelly (aka Brian) both of these guys have a lot of experience and knowledge on how to make snack sticks.

Sticks can handle a pretty good load of smoke. I usually use 4-5 ounces of wood and have used Hickory, Cherry, White and Red Oak, and Maple.

Hickory is probably my favorite and is my go to wood if I had to only pick one wood to use.

I think most of the recent Snack Sticks posts are in the Sausage section, not the Venison one although you may find some in there too.

I would read through a few of those threads and if you still have questions, post a new thread with your questions and we'll get you on the right track. Feel free to PM me too if you prefer.

Thanks again for the info. I'm going to give hickory a shot 1st. I have a bunch to smoke so I may experiment with some others as well.
