My actual first attempt was before I recieved the grinder and stuffer. I tried stuffing with a disposable pastry bag
I kept popping the metal tip off and having to fish it out of the casing
This sausage stuffer makes it simple. I found some videos on youtube and got tips off those. It really not as hard as I had always thought it would be. One thing I learned this time was to clamp my grinder down. I fought with it last week but this time when I was done I kept thinking "Heck, I could keep going... next time we'll do 10 or 15 pounds."
Since I am close to what I am wanting on this, I might decide now to try other sausages that I have had. I though about starting with bratwurst or polish sausage. Maybe I'll buy some pre-made at a store and try it before I go through a lot of work.
