Over all, a very good product. The spice blend contains the exact amount of both Cayenne pepper and white pepper giving the precise amount of fore-burn from the red pepper and the afterburn from the white pepper. I personally would use about 4 ounces more salt per hundred weight while blending as it seems to lack salt; also, most would dare NOT complain about a meat product being too lean, but, l would add a tad more beef fat or beef with more fat, about 5 more pounds per hundred weight, to heightened the flavor, as fat is flavor. Just my opinion, and yes, l will buy it again, as these stycks are a quality product!!
