Very true! Thank you for your reply. I guess it just comes down to what the pitmaster is comfortable with since the end product is his.

I made 'em...was a little hotter than I was anticipating. It was more of a red heat vs. black heat...red pepper vs. black pepper. Don't get me wrong, they were good, dang good in fact. Just didn't ...

I have zero basis for comparison purposes...the 15# is the first stuffer I've ever owned. However, I did some Italian sausages...the meat came out a lot faster than I imagined with very little effort ...

In either case, you're getting one gear going down which is really where you (meaning me) want the control, not the going back up. I have the 15 lb LEM stuffer. The reversal of the plunger is not tha ...

Well - i did have some blow outs...I think i might have used the wrong size tube for my casings. I used the middle sized tube instead of the larger one. The casings are the 32-35 mm sized. Not sure ...

Been playing with photobucket...should be posted now. Couldn't get the sizing right. Yes, I am using a dedicated stuffer...I got a great deal on a LEM 15 lb. stuffer.

Ok - I did a basic breakfast sausage and left it loose. I also did a Hot Italian sausage based on Griffin's recipe. The difficult part is the stuffing...I'm not sure of the amount to stuff into the ...
