    So I bought a hi mountain seasoning kit for beef sticks.  I'm certain that I'll never be able to go to the store-bought fatty things.  I ground up 10 lbs of chuck roast, tri-tip and a couple sirloin steaks left in the freezer.  Used 6 for the sticks, and 4 for burgers...(mmmm)  I think I'll add a bit of heat next batch, but boy are these things good.

    Anyways, finally was able to try out the grinder and stuffer attacment, and I must say this was all far easier than I expected.

    Those look mighty good, but I think you should have made more, they won't last long.

    I am finding that out, they're almost gone after a week.  Now that I know how to handle it, I'll get more meat next time :)

    I'm with Todd on this one you should make more but live and learn. Believe me you will start making more pretty soon. For when I started making sausage I was making sausage out of everything I could fit into the grinder. I now have a dog named Tri-Pod she was too slow one day. Your snack sticks do look good thou.

    I bought the Cabela's 1 hp grinder with stuffer attachment included when it was posted here on sale.  It stuffed like a dream.  http://www.cabelas.com/product/Home...=SBC;MMcat104798880;cat104364180#productChart   is their line of commercial grinders.  I see they're all on sale right now. 

    That thing is more than I need, but was the same cost as the 1/2 horse at the time, and I always subscribed to the Tim Allen method of More Power. :)

    Thanks everyone
     
  15. Those look very good.  I want to try and make some here soon with the deer we got this, how long did you smoke these for?

    Here's a website I found with a lot of sausage recipes- check it out-wedlinydomowe.pl/en/viewtopic.php?=5146.  Also, we have place here in WNY that has all kinds of seasoning, grinders, etc.- may want to look at sausagemaker.com.  All his products are of good quality and has a lot of good info.

    I have the 1 hp also, and if you like stuffing with that, invest in a Northern Tool 15lb dedicated stuffer; it cuts the work in half!  You will have to get a 3/8" tube for it; I got mine from Butcher Packer.
