    Cleaning out the freezer and found some venison from last year so I decided to make some sausage.... mixed 4 lbs venison with 1 lb beef fat, cure and some spices... smoked over apple wood... came out pretty tasty.  q-view of course...

    no pics of the grinding but I went once through the fine plate, mixed with spices/cure and stuffed into 32/35 hog casings...


    all linked up and hanging in the fridge overnight...


    made some bread while I was waiting...


    all finished


    took just under 6 hours...


    and here's how they look inside...


    made some soup and ate it with some of that bread http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/new-orleans-corn-bisque-with-smoked-sausage/Detail.aspx

    That is the Gander Mountain 15 lb stainless stuffer... bought it on sale for ~$160 a year back.  It works great... very solid construction, metal gears.  The only drawback is because it's so big it leaves maybe 8-12 ounces of stuck in the bottom of the stuffer... not a huge deal when you're doing 10 or 15 lbs but not that great when you're only doing a few pounds.  Otherwise it's been great, no complaints, have used it to stuff sausage, snack sticks, and used it to pack ground venison into those plastic bags.  I did just order the Grizzly 5 lb stuffer for smaller batches.

    How did you create the run chart?

    I was guessing Excel.  Did you capture the data points yourself?  I was thinking you may have rigged up a sweet contraption that would collect the data from the smoker and designated probes and allow you to export to Excel......how sweet would that be?
