Been reading how a lot of you make your own sausage so went out bought meat grinder yesterday.
and got me a pork butt.Made some breakfast sausage. I made it easy first time. Got some premix
breakfast seasoning from " Lem, backwoods" . I used Collagen 21MM casings. Second round I used
Natural Hog casings 32-35mm.
here starting grinding the meat
got it ready to mix the seasoning
little taste test before stuffing . Not bad , Wife like it the way it is. I think I would like more seasoning
got the Collagen casing loaded and started the stuffing
first one stuffed , had trouble trying to make it to links, think i stuff them to tight. didn't leave enough room to twist them
this morning breakfast. Eggs, toast , and first homemade sausage
They didn't fry up pretty but they tasted good.
Now on to round Two. Natural hog casings 32mm
wife thinks they look like worms. Should I tell her what they really are ??
cleaning them out
didn't get any pictures of them being filled on the grinder/stuffer. Wife was feeding the machine and I was
helping the casing be filled. Had one blowout right at the beginning. casing wasn't sliding off the horn right.
fix that and smooth sailing after that . Turn out pretty good for the first time.
Braided up nice and pretty
Well that was fun. I have a lot to learn so any tips, "how to" would greatly be appreciated.
using the Grinder as a stuffer is ok but I think I will invest in a stuffer. Well next is some summer sausage and
snack sticks. bought the kits for my first time doing them. Need to do some reading up on how to do them.
do believe a A-MAZE-N-SMOKER is next on my "to buy" list.
Sunday they go on the smoker.
