I'm not sure if I should post this here or in the smoking equipment area. Please forgive me if I screwed up. I want to begin making sausage and snack sticks. However I'm looking at "entry level" equipment for now. If I get hooked I'll invest more later. That being said I want equipment that is functional and will be acceptable for small batch work and built well enough for maybe 6 to 12 times year use.
Can anyone here recommend the LEM #8 grinder? A sporting goods chain here in Texas has it on sale this weekend for $70. I looked at reviews on this site for the same model and it looks different. The unit on our site is appears all stainless 5 stars.
I was also recommended the Kitchener #12. On at Northern for $99.
I also want an entry grade press. Ive been reading that using the grinder to stuff may not be the way to go.
Any help would be great!
