Good idea.  My Costco sells it for $1.90 / lb.  What about beef?

I haven't made any beef sausage so I can't help with that.

I'm sure someone else will give you some suggestions.

 

Good luck!

Beef is to high for me to make sausage,Pork shoulder $0.99 lb or butt $? Chicken also cheap.

I use Chuck or seven bone for making hamburger. I trim the fat and grind it seperatly then mix the two to get the fat content I want. We use this for sausage making and hamburger for other meals. Usually do a 90/10 or 4.5 pounds meat & .5 pounds fat for every 5 total pounds.

We do a bunch of chicken sausages for that I like to use thigh meat. Remove the skin and grind. Sometimes I'll add some of the skin back in but have found its not really needed.

Ground beef......80/20.....is on sale here right now for $2.55 lb. Sometimes chuck roll or beef shoulder clod will go on sale for less than that. Last Feb I got a packer for $1.99 lb for a 14 lber.....should have bought a case of them. Most of the time beef is $3.50 and up for a good grind-able meet.
