    It arrived early, in great shape and ready for me when I need it.

    I expect to use this more for cheese making.

    I ordered this product as an ingredient for “Taylor Ham” (aka Jersey Pork Roll). The product mixed well, with the desired “tangy” profile. First time to use this product and was more than pleased.

    good product. easy to use. makes my snack sticks taste like the store brand. Only change is i cut back to 3/4 tsp per pound of meat.

    To me, encapsulated citric acid is a must when making snack sticks or summer sausage. It adds that tangy flavor that simulates cured meat from a mom and pop old world butcher. If you haven’t tried adding it to your snack sticks before, you gotta give it a shot!
    I wish there was more in the package. Other places sell 4 ounces for cheaper, while this is 3 ounces for more expensive.

    Following Eric at 2 Guys and a cooler and will add this product to my sausage making journey.

  25. Andrew Hamel (verified owner)

    Ordered a half dozen items and all were delivered in great time, except package was missing one item. Called the company and the customer service was excellent. The 1 item must’ve shipped out that evening because I received it two days later.

    Ended up making 25 pounds of summer sausage. The hickory skins, hi temp cheese, and a few other spices were all excellent products! Kudos to Sausagemaker.com, will definitely order from the company again.
