Ended up being 100 lbs 50/50, 60 lbs 60/40, and 25 lbs of just pork because ran out of deer after trimming.
Tried each batch patty form, was good, so hope that transfers over. Kids loved it, and wife even said it was good.
Going to smoke some tomorrow, anyone want to give me some advice on smoking it?
Also need some dried sausage advice?
Thanks again for all the knowledge shared on here, I have learned a ton from all the posts on here.
The grinder worked awesome, ate and chewed it up as fast as I could get it in the hole. STX-4000, have a bunch of positive reviews on Amazon when I ordered it, no complaints here, chewed it up at 50lbs every 15 mins, and it was on low, and I probably slowed it down feeding it.
Went with a 5lb stuffer, LEM model, worked well, just wish I would have ordered the 25lb model, or a bigger one, reloading was probably the biggest limiting factor.
Used a natural casing, worked well, not sure if you can make that process any easier, loading that on the tube was tough work, any tricks?
Overall great time, had family in and out helping and taking part, so great learning experience for all.
