    Ordered an 11lb stuffer from Walton's. My first stuffer so no experience but seems like a good quality unit.

    Decided to use a pre-made spice mix from a local butcher supply.

    Stuffed into 19mill collagen casings I also ordered from Walton's.

    Only had one blowout and I felt my first stuffing attempt was pretty successful.

    Well below freezing here so I set the pid on my smoker at 36degrees and hung them to rest overnight.

    In the smoker now with my amnps with hickory. Will post more when they hit temp.

    Not a problem at all.

    Finished to an IT of 152. Some were as high as 155. Just over 7 hours total. Here they are resting in my 26 degree garage!

    Took the meat that was left in the stuffer and rolled it into a log. It to an additional 20 minutes to get to temp.

    Of course I couldn't resist tasting a piece! Flavor from the premixed spice was great. I would've preferred more heat and will definitely add some jalapeno next time.

    I think you all have helped me start a new obsession!
