This was the weekend for a buddy and I to try our hand at sausage making. We've been collecting the needed supplies and put them to use this last weekend. The first batch is Hi Mountain German sausage 15lbs worth. We used colleagen 30mm. They were nice and easy to use. Had a few rookie mistakes. Like filling them to full where they split later and makeing links after they were already fully stuffed. Note to self make links as we go . The second batch was what they call Texas chilli hot stix by Luhur Jensen, I think.That had to marinate over night, made ten lbs of that with colleagen casings to. First we tried useing the the stuffer grinder to make the little suckers. What a pain in the . Took us over 30 mins to do 3 18in lengths . Then decided to try out the Lem cannon. Took another 30 or so mins and we were done. The german sausage came out quite well we thought and definately we will make more of that. The styx on the other hand are a desired taste and I don't desire it . My buddy wasn't to impressed either. Couple more sessions and we'll be rollin.
