Here's some thoughts for you to consider.....
I have the Cabelas 1 hp grinder with the foot pedal control (extra) so my hands are free to do whatever I need too.
The grinder comes with stuffing tubes for sausage and snack stix so with the foot pedal you could do sausage yourself (both hands are free to work with).
I also have the burger press which works excellant!!!!
I also have the Meat Cuber/Tenderizer that is fantastic!!!!
I also have the Jerky slicer but haven't used it yet, but if it works only half as good as the cuber/tenderizer it will be awesome!!!!
Here's links to some of my posts using the grinder and attachments, check them out....

This thread has the burger press in the first post and the tenderizer/cuber in the second post.http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...ad.php?t=81035
You can also watch videos at Cabelas web site to see these work.
If you have any questions just ask, I'll be happy to answer....
