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.

Beautiful sausages. I've never had the ambition to put my sausage into casings, you make it look easy!

very nice, wt!!!

lol, i was gonna say wtg wt.

i was taught by an old italian pork sausage maker (both he and the sausage were italian, but only the guy was old, lol) that the hallmark of a good italian style sausage was that it should be chunky, not finely ground. the idea is that you can grind a lot of fillers into the finely ground stuff, but you can't hide fillers in chunky ground for obvious reasons.

btw, bolas, you've spent far too much time thinking about your sausage...

Thanks for the advice Tom mate, I do find thinking of my sausage beats rubbing my brisket hands down.

I concur with your first point, to undress your second. No as in Hans and Lotte Hass, did you know Tom that the Hass avocado was named after the nubile Lotte, their underwater adventures fired my imagination as a teenager they were so much more sedate than Baywatch.
Ps it is your fault, you start the double entendre fest.

I would be very surprised if anyone apart from those with equally fetid minds will understand our innuendo laced missives.
Ps I do enjoy a good giggle in the morning.
