1st Sweet Italian

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

The Mrs got me a stuffer for fathers day so I figured the 4th would be a perfect time to have my 1st go at sausage making.  I figured Id start out easy and bought a Lem sweet Italian sausage mix from bass pro along with some 32mm hog casings. 

 

Started with a 7lb bone in butt.  After trimming and grinding I ended up with just under 5 lbs of pork.  It went pretty good but will definitely get easier with more practice.  I need to somehow mount the stuffer to something it kept sliding around.  I'm think just clamping it to a board.  

 

Well heres some pics...i did a test fry and it tasted like sausage...More pics after its cooked later today.

Nice job on the stuffing, Scott! Mine still don't always look that nice LOL!
Check Weston.com and look for "Universal suction cup feet". Holds the stuffer down like a dream.

Thanks everyone..No money shots unfortunately.  They did turn out very good but I either over cooked them or didn't add enough fat so they were on the drier side.  Definitely something I will try again.  Can't wait to make some snack sticks and summer sausage.  Thank you Dan for the suction cups idea...they are on sale for $7.99.

First, the sausage looks great!

Second, the sausage looks really great for a first time. I wish my first stuff had turned out as well.

Third, keep that wife. Any wife who helps with the hobby is a keeper.

 

Points.
