The first try at these came out pretty good. 15 lbs lasted 2 months, guess everybody liked them even with the tough casings. So after researching on this site I decided to try again.
Started with 36 lbs of ground pork butt and beef round steak. Added High mountain season, some extra fresh ground black pepper, and one clove of garlic for each 12 lb batch.
Had three of these pans full.
Covered and let rest overnight in the fridge. Did second grind and stuffed the casings. Here is the first load in the MES 40 with AMNPS loaded with Apple.
When they reached internal temp. of 156 placed them in ice bath overnight now they are ready to be packaged.
All packaged up and ready for my Grandson's to enjoy. Enough here I hope to last me at least thru part of the summer. Ended up with 38 packages.
We did a test taste yesterday these came out great, nice flavor and the casings came perfect. Nice snap to them. Didn't have much time to take pictures.
