This can be done by sprinkling the powder directly onto the meat pieces, alternatively, mix the powder with a small amount of water and brush onto the meat. After applying the Meat Glue remove any air pockets between the bonding surfaces and tightly push the meat together, using a vacuum pack is ideal to ensure a tight fit, or, roll the products in a plastic wrap, or put a weight on top of the pieces to be glued. Then allow the product to stand in the fridge undisturbed for 4 hours.
