Guys, I am wanting to get into doing my own sausage, and am looking for a solid machine, under $200.
Can you help me out? There are way too many choices.
I was hoping to buy a LEM grinder today, cyber Monday, but Cabella's prices have a larger discount today. I have used LEM but not Cabella's but I have never had a bad product from Cabella's. Much like LLBean's QA.
Gonna think on it today...... Like to keep all to one manufacturer, but ........
Found this one... Thoughts? Really tempted, for the price, and a 1/2 hp motor, dont think I can loose.
Will likely pair it with this
You will not regret getting a dedicated stuffer. I always recommend to people to go ahead and get one. Makes it enjoyable and not a chore. The plastic gears on that stuffer have been known to fail but I can't see that happening unless popeye had too much spinach and ran out of meat to stuff.
You will be happy with those two purchases.
Much better than messing with the Kitchen Aid attachments or trying to grind and stuff from a grinder.
Welcome to your new addiction!
Good luck and good smoking.
You are smarter than me. I just recently bought a dedicated stuffer. Now I wonder why it took me so long. There is a HUGE difference in texture of your sausage, time to do other things, and inappropriate language.
Check Academy if you have one close by. Where I live you can't swing a dead cat without hitting one. I checked a few and found this for $60 bucks. I don't process whole deer or dinosaurs or anything like that so this is great for my needs.
I got this at a local Academy too:
It does have that large horn in the bottom, but it didn't leave as much as I thought. I like the idea of metal gears for that price.
I didn't buy an LEM yesterday, 10% just wasn't enough for me to get excited about. Maybe after Christmas, but who knows. LEM did have some decent sales just nothing I wanted to purchase yet.
