I've had a High Mountain Bratwurst kit for a while now and finally got to use it yesterday. Hubby (Dan) brought home some fresh ground pork the other day so I immediately thought about the brat kit. I made 8 lbs yesterday mainly by myself using my kitchaid and the sausage stuffer attachment. I could have used an extra pair of hands. Dan did help me towards the end and it went quicker. Can you tell I had difficulty getting them the same size? I have to lay them flat to smoke as I don't have a way to hang them, yet. I added a little bit of heat to the last pound before stuffing the casings, looking forward to tasting them. I'm hoping they're not too hot for the wimps I live with. They're in the smoker now. I'll post when they're done.
