Wow, don't know how I missed this one. Those are some fine looking sticks and thanks for the tutorial and recipe.

Thanks everyone. These are by far my best sticks to date. My wife LOVES these. I only wish my 19mm stuffing tube wasn't on backorder from LEM. I really want to make smaller sticks and experiment.
Local Bass Pro Shop in Savannah has 8 of the ELM tubes.
I find it creates a better seal while stuffing and it glides up with little to no resistance after it pushed all the meat out. I'm not taking a chance of having the rubber tear. That's all.
