approximatley 60lbs. I have been upgrading my equiptment so I am able to make larger quantities. I just bought the cabelas 1hp meat grinder. What a hoss. I can grind 60lbs in ten minutes. The filling takes the longest time because I dont make one long piece and twist into rings. I fill one ring at a time and tie with butchers twine. I upgraded to the 30lb cabelas stuffer about two years ago from a small homemade stuffer I built out of sanitary tubing and a air cylinder.. It takes about two hrs to fill the sausage. It usually is a two day process from start to finish. I prep the boston butts, grind, season, add cure, refrigerate 12-20hrs, fill, hang, cook, Ice bath, hang in refrigerator 12 hrs, vacuum seal. This batch did not get any frozen. It went out as christmas gifts. I get 6mths shelf life in the fridgerator by vacuum sealing and two years in the freezer.
