Did you use the quick/insta cure in the mix??(the pink powder stuff)

Mine gets so tacky you can't get it off your own hands without scraping or washing them under warm water.

When using a mix with cure in it they say to put a little water in it 1/4 cup for most I also add soy or teriyaki sauce .The moisture helps hold it together.

We normally mix it with some beef burger and it stays together

The recommended mix ratio for ground meat is as follows:
1/4 t cure
1 1/2 T seasoning mix
2 T water

Per lb of ground meat.

I have never had a problem with this ratio.

I've always used the seasoning packed and cure packet. Sticks together just fine.

If you will cram it in to the gun and press it full (I use a big spoon to put it in there) it comes out just fine.
