X2 what boykjo said....use a vertical stuffer.
I stuffed a little sausage with it a couple of times when I first got, all I had at the time was a 5lb hand crank. It worked OK, I had no complaints. If you are going to get into making your own sausage get a dedicated stuffer, period. I'm a one-man show with bad shoulders, the Cabelas motorized stuffer with foot pedal I have is the sole reason I am even able to make sausage these days, and I make some dammed good stuff. RAYAll you guys who use either the LEM or the Cabelas, do you use it to stuff too, or do you use a vertical stuffer? I've heard mixed reviews....air pockets, takes too long, and such
I have done a double grind a couple times already, and I stuffed with my son once. I didn’t find any issue at all.... other than I need to control the speed at which the casing comes off the horn...(I feel i was feeding too fast and the casings were not filled enough) I will still prob buy the high speed auger and give it a go, I would like to use one device for the $$ I paid... but I have already asked for a nice vert. stuffer for Xmas! Lol.I agree....feeding once ground meat into a #12 throat is not much fun nor as easy as a #22, I'm betting the #8 throat size would be even less fun.
O bull. I have the $100 lem #8 575 watt grinder that has run over 2000 pounds of meat through it with no issues. Mostly frozen to cold meat it doesn't care, chews 1/2" wide strips as long as I can cut them faster then I can feed the grinder. I don't even waste my time with the second grind nonsense, put the smallest plate in the grinder and go to town.Stay away from lem 8#. Too small and under horse powered.
