With hunting season getting closer I figured that I better use up the rest of my venison trimmings that I had in the freezer. I don't feel right about adding more if I never finished last years. So I figured I would make some kielbasa and Andouille sausages. I use my kitchen-aid mixer with the meat grinder attachment and that does the job just fine. However, I really dislike the sausage stuffer attachment. It tends to turn the sausage into mush. I decided to treat myself and purchased a 5 lb vertical sausage stuffer from Gander Mountain. (The wife doesn't know yet) Man does that thing work slick. Sausage is in the smoker now, but I am having trouble keeping the temp low. I think it is time to do a mod on the smoker and put in an optional side box so that I can do some cold smoking. http://s843.photobucket.com/albums/z...t=DSCN1338.jpg"
