going to make a "few " smoked sausage this weekend
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
i figured out how to attach my cordless 18 volt drill to my stuffer . can do 15 lbs in a few seconds ...lol
i control the speed , the wife controls the tube , it goes pretty fast
a BIG part of it is going to freinds , i told them i would make it for them at cost , i am keeping 30 lbs of hot and spicy for me and not sure how much
of the mild the wife is keeping for her , but she told me tonight all but 5 lbs was spoken for .
right off the bat i made a rookie mistake , we deboned and ground 6 butts last night and seasoned them to marry the flavor overnight
then 1st thing this morning we started stuffing , the meat was waaaay to cold and that made it to hard for the cordless to handle so
i had to do the 1st 50 lbs by hand and it was still hard , today we have roughly 100 lbs done but not smoked , just plain ran out of room
so the 1st thing i have to do Sunday morning is put a load on the smoker in order to get room to debone , grind and season the last 7 butts
so far the deboning has been the worst of it
i'm losing a tad over 2 lbs per 50 after deboning , so not bad there
i have no idea what size the grinder is , its just a cheap one we bought from harbor freight , but it works great , no complaints here
i don't cube the meat,i cut it into long strips and the grinder pretty much feeds itself
That says a LOT about your dedication to this hobby! Carry on friend, I look forward to some plated results.
out of 147.74 lbs of Boston BUTTS the bones weighed 7.93 lbs .
i think its time to sharpen the grinder blade's but i have no idea how ...lol
we have ground probably north of 300 lbs of meat since we bought the grinder . so i figure its time to sharpen them
