I need something to do so we are making some Landjaeger press molds.

Hardwood ply.....NO WAY to much $$

S4S Ply 3/4" for the base and tops.

Poplar for the dividers and slats.

Made a couple spacers so all the sections will be the same width.

After its all together i will cold smoke the press and top so they get a nice season. I'm thinking after the season maybe a coat of chopping block oil?

Slats are 3/4 x 3/4" x 18"

Spacers are 1 1/2" x 1 1/4" x 3/4"

Base and tops 20" x 18" X 3/4 "
 
Nepas I agree with AK. Your freakin out of control! Not to change the subject but what kind of stuffer do you have?

Got the press done and sprayed with a salt cure solution. No for some season smoke.

Had my casing soaking, mixed the meat and did some late night stuffing for the press.

I guess i need a tad more weight on the top next time. But they flattened good.

140* with some hickory smoke going, then PID to 150 with a finish temp of 160*

After i get the IT of the links i will hang these in the house with a R/H of 60-70% for a few days.

Awesome job NEPAS !

They look much better than the ones I used to buy in bars!

BTW:  Why are they supposed to be flattened anyway, other than to keep them from rolling off the dash, while going up a long hill on Rt 81????

From what i know they are flat because they pocket easier when out hunting.
 
I have a hard time just MAKING sausage and you two are talking why they should be flat.  Too funny.  I would like to see more about that fancy shmancy water stuffer posted...

Looks very good anyway, well done.
 
Yea I agree we all want to see that water stuffer in action. Of course it goes without saying your sausage looks delicious!
 
Got em done. Now the wait 4-6 days maybe or until i see the moisture loss and shrinkage. No fridge  needed. Better fire the humidifier up.
