Pros: Easy for one person
Cons: Jerky attachment
I just received my Dakota Stuffer today and used it to stuff 100 pounds for deer sticks. I didn't want to use water so I set it up to run off a air compressor. I set compressor output to about 30-40 psi. The shutoff valves that they provide with the stuffer did not hold air so I went to Menard's and purchased a better valve. I ran the stuffer off of a little pancake compressor. Stuffing tubes with the air worked awesome. After I did 100 pounds of cased deer sticks I tried the Jerky attachment.. That did not work out that well. I turned the compressor down more and still could not get the jerky to come out slow enough to work properly. I don't know if I need to put the meat in the fridge awhile to stiffen the meat back up or if I have to use the water to make jerky. I will figure out the jerky attachment soon so I don't have to use my jerky shooter. Other than that this works awesome. I wish I would of bought this sooner. I could of used it about a month ago when I made 200 pounds of deer summer sausage that I stuffed through my grinder. I recommend this stuffer to anyone. It is worth the money.
