Looks real good. Can you share the bologna recipe? Bologna has been on my radar for a while. Just put some venison in the freezer a couple days ago.

Jim, you got nice looking kielbasi and bologna! Did you use your recipe or pre-mixed spices?

Looking really good!! That looks like a really cool old school grinder! How old is it?
thanks, yeah it's an old Hobart, not sure how old it is but I bought it off a older friend of mine a couple years back and to quote him he told me he bought it from an old store 30 years ago for 60 bucks and that this grinder doesn't owe him nothing and to just give him back his 60 bucks. I couldn't believe he gave it to me for that.

Both of them look great. We use the Con Yeager kits to do our deer bologna too. We like the PA Deer bologna kit the best. My son and I usually end up doing a 25# batch of bologna and a 25# batch of hot sausage each year from our deer (if we're fortunate enough to get some)... Nice work!

Have an old one myself. Though don't use any more. So dam heavy to move. They did make them to last. Mine came from a meat market that was closing. They had used it for 15 plus years.

Everything looks great. As soon as I seen the grinder I knew it was a Hobart. I have one that looks just like that. Great grinder.
