Ok, so this may be a dumb question, but I'd like to try to make my own sticks and have no clue how to do it.

How do you stuff the casings? Where do you buy casings, cures, seasoning, etc.? I've seen a few websites where they sell a complete kit with everything a person would need. Are those good?

Help a rookie out! Thanks so much!

Dude, nice color! Those look delish. Do you have a photo of the reverse flow?

Did you grind once

Did you use the #8 plates are they considered fine or coarse?

A friend of mine did a batch and they were really bumpy I thought his meat might have not been lean or he used coarse plates but the #8 looks about what he used.
I hope he didn't use the 14mm plates
