yo salmon clubber dude,
alliedkenco and sausagemaker are both places that have given me
my 3 shopping needs.
that is 1 good quality 2 good prices and 3 good service.

i also have liked butcher packer ,but have never bought any thing there.

there is a store about a mile from me called Cummins tool [3 stores in
st.louis area]
they are like harbor freight [in st.louis also]

they have a manual piston style 3 lb sausage stuffer for 20 bucks
they have # 8 manual grinders for 10 bucks.
also # 10 grinder for 20 bucks.

i have stuffing attachments on my mincer/grinder,
so i havent bought one Yet. [he he]

if making sausage for your family and friends ,you could get set up
for 30 bucks.----------[i use # 8 porkert brand]

i have fun with my sausage and my smoker.

yo y,all

last week i finally parted with 20 bucks and got a 3 lb old style piston stuffer from cummins tool..
on the box it says its a 5 lb unit.
i dont think it will hold 5 lbs of ground meat at a time.
it has 3 plastic stuffing tubes.
its cast iron.

im spending most of my time at my honeys ,and the grinder i have there doesnt have stuffing attachments.

i wonder how long i can get away with making things
at her apartment.---she does the clean up.

my smoker has been there since january.

Hello Steve,

Ive just put on my first ever sausage in my smoker along with a big pork butt.  I started from scratch at the meat shop with a butt and had them grind.  I mixed up that with seasonings and bought casings that were still attached to membranes and practiced until I got the casings cleared cleaned salt water and lime juice and just before I started stuffing I flushed the casings again with fresh water.  Overnight in the refer then on the smoker at 225 forever or until I think they are done.  I will use a probe and smoke until around 170 or so.

I tried going to your site but I doesnt work for me.  I live in Thailand but that shouldnt make any difference. 

Would like some help here on this from any other blogger but Im on my own with this today as its a friends birthday and Im the chef.  Hope we all dont get sick  UGH

I go through the hole in the aitch bone (pelvic) and stitch pump into the 4 main quadrants of the ham; upper left, upper right, lower left, lower right, then from the hock into the shank and once into the sirloin tip with a 10% pump.
