With so many positive reviews on this forum, I just had to order a couple of 10# kits. I had my pork butt ground, mixed with the venison and other ingredients, and packed into the pans in under two hours. Pretty easy compared to stuffing sausage casings! I didn't have a mixing pan big enough, so I improvised. Since it is the Christmas season, I found an empty plastic storage container in the basement and cleaned it out. The wife's out of town, so I didn't have to ask permission and be turned down. And now next year's decorations will have the wonderful smell of bacon! Tomorrow I will smoke the three "loaves", and will add my own review. I hope this lives up to the praises that so many members have written.
