Had a long weekend of making some different product for the first time.
I tried Duncan Henry fresh sausage recipe and Len Poli "Jimmy Dean" sausage with modifications.
The kielbasa recipe was also from Duncan henry with some additions. Kabonosy recipe was a combination from Marianski with a few additions after reading a few posts on here.
Vension snack stick were 10lb a version of Nepa from this forum and 10lb was my recipe.
Fine grind plate- 3/16" Course plate - 3/8"

My takeaways all the sausages were really good I wasn't disappointed at all. MSG is an amazing addition to all recipes I recommend everyone try it. Natural casings are really something first time using them had a few blow outs to be expected. The kielbasa textures and flavor really complimented each other very well I will definitely make it again. The kabonosy has always been favorite of mine since I was a kid and Its really satisfying knowing that I can make it myself now. The pork back fat in the venison tastes better in my opinion then just adding pork butt it like almost a more rich flavor from the pure fat. The sheep casing are my favorite as far as eating but they are definitely tricky to work with. I bought pretubed casings from Syracuse casing and the collagen ones from waltons inc. Thanks for looking hope these recipes help someone or at least point them in the right direction.

Wow - you worked hard! But when it is all done, it is so worth it! Looks awesome to me.

I just upgraded a few months ago to the LEm grinder - the same as yours. What a beast! Quiet as a can-opener and it just chews through the meat as fast as I can feed it.
