I was only able to get 5lbs stuffed. Cooked up test patty and tasted wonderful but crumbled. Recipe mods will probably reducing liquids and adding binder.
More qview tomorrow

Yep great little meat mixers. Madison ain't no yuppie girl! Just fired up smoker 2:05.
Let the qview begin.
Starting at 120 for 1hr no smoke need to dry casing.
5 hrs in with 3 hrs smoke, got some air pockets. Smells great.

The crumbly texture is probably due to too much vinegar in the mix. It prevents a good bind and thus a crumbly texture.
