    I have been waiting some brats for a while so I broke out the grinder and stuff, a 14lb pack of boneless shoulder and all the fixins.

    I only took 1 picture so im slacking there but they were really good. I would really encourage anyone who hasnt made their own sausage to give it a whirl. Its easy to do and beats the hell out of the store stuff.



    Thanks for looking.

    bmudd, those look awesome. For 4 years now a bunch of us get together one Saturday in March and do around 350lbs - 400lbs of brats, italians, and hungarien. Yea your right after eating the homemade ones,the store stuff doesn't taste is good.

    Normally id do more but only have 1 cryo pack of pork left. Time to get another case or 2 I guess. That will make the cabela's grinder and the stuffer very happy.

    These were fresh so ill hot smoke them for a hour or 2 until they get to 145-150 then finish on a hot grill to crisp.




    Thanks for the comments everyone. They are really good. Cant wait to have more.
     
  16. They look really good. Nice fat distribution and great color.
