I understand the reasoning more smoke. I just thought stuffin them might be less work if it didn't alter them much. BUT !!!! My equipment was a # 32 grinder w/pully so it could be motorized, which it wasn't. I had a 3/8 tube on it. I do have to say this was my first time trying to use the grinder for a stuffer. WELL it will never be attempted again. I will buy a dedicated stuffer or jerky gun. To the other newbies like me don't waste your time. I can't say how well a motorized grinder or kitchen aid adapter would work but I see why they make dedicated stuffers. Well to make it short, cleaned out the grinder, rolled between wax paper, rolled into rounds. Ready to smoke.
