Plans are set for the 2014 Aggie Processed Meat Technology School. By attending the Aggie Processed Meat Technology School, you will discover both the science and the art of making processed meat products. The first day will focus on what you should consider when choosing the meat products and other ingredients to include in the processed meat item. That afternoon, participants will learn the art of making sausage and cured and whole muscle products. Then, the next day experts will demonstrate cooking, smoking, and thermal processing considerations. Finally, participants will learn about ways to evaluate the finished product for quality and safety. Anyone who wants to learn the basic science and art of making processed meat products would benefit from attending this workshop. This would include people who are directly involved in processed meat products as well as others in your company (such as quality control, business management, public relations and marketing personnel) who need a good overview of how processed meat products are made and the how’s and why’s of the process.
