Is there a way to copy OS X Snow Leopard straight off the system to a flash drive?

Your title DOESN'T "say it all"

Let's examine your question more closely.

Do you want the entire contents of your present drive on the flash drive?

Or, do you just want a "basic installation" of Snow Leopard? (that you can then just "dupe" onto any blank drive?)

Or, do you want a bootable USB drive version of the Installer itself?

There are several ways to go here...

Well I want the full thing to clean install on a Hackintosh Mini

You can duplicate a drive with Disk Utility.
A full copy?

Have you checked into Carbon Copy Cloner?
Yes but I'm not 100% if I could use that on an OS'less Hackintosh Mini I'm going to build
