Made my first 2 batches of sausage today. Brats & Breakfast Links. Tried it for supper (no pics) turned out pretty tasty.

Looks great from where I'm sitting. I did a lot of youtube watching before I made my first as well.

Sausage making is actually way easier than the zealots make it sound. Sure they won't be picture perfect, but if you can eat them ....
Yours actually look great. What's the secret to your success?

First time making sausages?! Doesn't look like this... :emoji_wink: Looks great! Nice work on linking...
I dunno, I learned much by watching sausage makers on youtube before my first try. If you don't have a mentor among your personal friends, watching videos can go a long way in knowing how much to fill, how to link, etc. My first attempt would have been a mess if I hadn't had access to the internet.

Same for me when it comes to Italian Salumi. I have learned a lot just watching how they do things and why.....

They look great . I think you'll find after they sit the flavor will get better . Nice work .

Looks good.

Can't beat your own sausage, fresh or smoked.
