Yay, i'm so excited my new stuffer is on its way and will be here tomorrow! I finally justified getting a dedicated stuffer, but really only because i found one from Grizzly tools on amazon for 66 bucks. Its a knock off no doubt, but is still stainless and vertical. I can't store and my family can't eat more than 5lb batches anyway so i think it should work great for me. http://www.amazon.com/Grizzly-H6252-...9931724&sr=8-1 Now i just need to decide what recipe to break it in with Thank heavens its a 3 day weekend. I'll need the extra day to handle all the food projects i want to do.
