Been wanting to do this for years. Broke down and bought a grinder(.25LEM), mixer(20#Weston), and stuffer(5#LEM). Thought I would start with something easy, so decided to make some brats. Bought a 6# pork shoulder and after boning it out, ran it through the coarse blade in the grinder. Ended up with 5.25 # ground pork. Put it in mixer and added the seasoning. To make it simple, I used a ready made seasoning kit(AC Legg). Then into the stuffer and stuffed into 35mm casings. I was very pleased with the results, except thought it could have used a little more seasoning. I used the recommended amount for 5#(3Tbs) and even added an extra tsp. for the extra 1/4 #. Maybe will use a little more next time. Finished product. On the grill. A little refreshment while grilling. A bun, some brown mustard, and some sauerkraut. Awesome.
