    That looks great!  Did you use just straight pork loin or did you add fat?  Im always messing around with lower fat sausages!
  7. Straight pork loin+ 1 cup NFDM and mix it by hand like crazy. If I don't mix it enough it turns out crumbly. I do use cure and try not to let the cooker get much over 180° even if it means cracking the cover or door,plenty moist. I grind once and went approximately half medium,half coarse.

    That's awesome! I know what you mean about the mix. If you undermix, the texture is terrible, especially with lean meats it seems. I usually use the "Does it stick to the palm of my hand when it's facing down? " test to see if its mixed enough.
