bratwurst question

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Ii have to stuff with my grinder. How do I get all of the meat out mof the grinder. I probably have enough meat leeft for 2 brats so I feel like I am wasting.

Also I had a lot of blow outs while stuffing. I was using Syracuse Casing hog 29/32 mm. Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated

make a patty and eat it ...  lol

you can use the stuffing tube and force the meat down by hand also with a piece of dowel. it was explained by an old timer that is the way he learned to stuff sausage, and when i have made some home made portuguese chorizo  with him that is how we finished the last little bit, and of course a couple patties ...(traditional portuguese chorizo is all cubed, NOT ground) he is happy he now has a stuffer :0)

I end up with a few patties after stuffing. I enjoy eating them. If it is sausage that has cure in it, I save it until I have enough to make some pork shots.

You can put some bread in the grinder to help push the remaining meat out... or as the others said.. just patty it and fry it up

A slice of bread works, but so does a paper towel.  Just turn the grinder off when the towel reaches the plate.

Sounds like your in need of a vertical stuffer................Thumbs Up

Culinary Schools teach the students to run in about 3' of Plastic Wrap. It stops at the plate, no risk of shredding and comes out easily...JJ

I take the meat out of the stuffer and load up my jerky shooter with the round tip and push the remaining meat mixture into the casings.  Doesn't take too long but I don't like wasting meat after I have spent that much time preparing it!!!

With a stuffer like this 5Lb Kitchener, the only meat is in the tube....




This style of Weston 5lb Stuffer and this dual speed stuffer leave a few ounces in the elbow between the base and tube...JJ

Also I had a lot of blow outs while stuffing.

Blowouts are usually cause by overfilling the casing; not allowing the filled casing to freely slide off the tube or there are weak spots in the casing.
