Well, I found 2 bone-in picnic shoulders on sale for $7.50 each. I ended up with 10 pounds of meat after deboning. Being only my 3rd batch of sausage and by far the biggest one I have done, The measurements were not a problem, but the grinding was an adventure lol. A couple of times the grinder attachment came flying off the front of the kitchen aid mixer, so it kept me paying attention. Nothing keeps you focused like the knowledge that at any minute the grinder attachment may start spinning in a circle and fly off. I was trying to hold it on but it's tough to feed the grinder, make sure the meat is going into the bowl evenly without using my third hand to hold the attachment on. I finally got the meat ground after having to clean the attachment out. both the attachment and meat had been in the freezer. The hand mixing was a challenge on 10 pounds, like catching fish in the dead of winter with your hands, but got it done. I had 2 lady's in our church sit with me at a dinner we had Wednesday. I had made some of the sauces and they really liked it so I told them I have a smoking problem. I love to smoke meats anyway these are 2 of the kindest people I have ever met, so I did a brisket for them today, and when they came to get it I put the burnt ends where they could do a taste test. It was great to watch them take that first bite. I did get the sausages done and made New Orleans French bread and Olive oil Brioche Buns, homemade cole slaw, and homemade coleslaw dressing and it was amazing. Could not decide which bread so I did 1/2 of each. Holy smokes was it good. Threw a few picks of the brisket in there as well.
