There was a thread on economical sausage stuffers (not the worm gear ones like Kitchen Aid attachments) and I can’t seem to find it…can any one help an old feeble elder in his (probably last) quest in life! Bless you!
And me with no prehensil tail to speak of, elst I would be a chasin’ it!
Hello, Carl!

Prehensil tails notwithstanding I poked "stuffer" into the search function of the site and came up with two pages of sausage and grinder and stuffer stuff. WOW! Sure are a lotta related posts!

Do you have a specific question about stuffers?
If so, let it fly!

This thread is titled perfect to start new questions. I have a 4 qt and an 8 qt Enterprise. I am looking to upgrade to a Sausage Maker or LEM brand. For the money, what is the best sausage stuffer on the market?

What I am looking at is a 15 lb, and the Sausage Maker is $350 plus shipping and the LEM is $300 plus tax. Both appear to have the same design. I have looked at others and they appear to have a different air relief design and I from what I have seen and used I like the 2 I listed.
Yeah, I just bought a inexpensive vertical stuffer from Northern Industries, looks like that 5 lb. grizzly, only my gears are white! For all the stuffing I do, I just wanted something that wouldnâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]t turn my venison jalapeno cheese stick to a smeary yellow mess like those electric meat grinder/stuffers. I just generally make sausage once or twice a year, whatâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s the word on these 5 lbers?

I got sausage tubes with my Lem electric grinder and went to right back to the vertical stuffer.

Carl I love my vertical stuffer beats the heck out of the ole knuckle buster grinder/stuffers. I think we had about 6 people buy them when I first posted last winter.

The Grizzly I got has white nylon gears too. At the time the Northern and the grizzzly appeared to be identical but my Grizzly was $59 and the Northern was like $79 so I went with the Grizzly. It appears they changed the gears right after I bought mine. It's not that big a deal to add more meat you run out of casing anyway... I usually only make 10 to 15 pounds of sausages at a time about once or twice a month. The 5 lber works well for me.
Thanx Debi! thatâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s all I needed to know. If I wasnâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]t so honest, Iâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]d go poach a deer right now, cause Iâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]m outa deer meat as you already know! dammit! Maybe Iâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]ll accidently run one over!

Hi Monty!
Hi, Carl!

Good to be on the kibbutz again! If you had a job with the PA Highway Dept, I work for the VT Highway Dept, you could be in line for a lot of venison.

Good luck in your search for a good stuffer. I make my sausage into patties suitable for breakfast sandwiches and chubs for fatties. Takes a lot of the labor outta my love for sausage. I still do stuff but the bulk methods are more suited to my short time availability.

Hoping you are well!

I picked up a Weston 11 lb vertical stuffer and felt like spending a little more money so I also got the foot controlled motor. I got mine from

They have a good selection of everything you need to process your own meat. from grinders to knives, to freezer paper, to turkey fryers, to vacuum sealers.
Hey Carl, you don't have to poach a deer. Just get smart like I did and hit one with your pickup! Oh, your way ahead of me! For what ever its worth, by the time I paid $3200 to get the pickup pounded out, I might coulda bought a whole beef cheaper.
